Foodspiration: Be Inspired with this SIMPLE Meal…

I made this dinner a few nights ago and I can’t remember ever hearing the word “thank you this was awesome!” so many times at my dinner table!  The lemon juice and garlic really made the flavors burst.   The meal was simple, but looked very complex and tasted DEVINE!  If you need to add more carbohydrates to this meal, try serving with a baked sweet potato, brown rice, or quinoa.
