Lime Tilapia with Crisp Tender Peppers

This was a huge favorite of my whole family!! In fact a couple of days later my son asked if he could have the leftovers for breakfast... After we decided that he could have them for lunch he was ecstatic! Definitely an easy re-do... The only not so great part was peppers - I got a little crazy and heavy handed with the basil and they were not a favorite part of this meal for any of us!

Lime Tilapia with Crisp Tender Peppers
(recipe found in Taste of Home)

4 tilapia fillets
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 each medium sweet red, yellow and orange pepper, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil

Place fillets on a 13x9 baking dish. Drizzle with lime juice; sprinkle with lime peel, salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook and stir peppers in oil over medium heat until crisp tender; stir in basil. Serve with tilapia.
