What to do when your friend's herbs get out of control: Lemon Thyme Tilapia

Here's what you're gonna need:
4 tilapia fillets

1 spring onion, white part only, finely chopped
olive oil

about 2 tsp of your best friend from down the street's overgrown lemon thyme, finely chopped
(Regular thyme will also work if your friend down the street didn't grow lemon thyme, althoughyou should probably get a better friend with a bigger herb selection for next year.)
1/2-1 tsp sea salt or kosher salt (adjust amount of salt to taste)
the zest of 2 lemons (save the lemons for squeezing on the fish afterward)

And here's what you're gonna do:

Preheat oven to 350.

Place chopped spring onion on the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Brush both sides of fish with olive oil and sprinkle one side of the fish with a small amount black pepper. Place fish pepper side down on top of onions in the baking dish. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, combine the thyme, salt and lemon zest in a small bowl and mix. When fish is done, sprinkle the top with seasoning. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
