Baked Lemon, Garlic, Butter Tilapia

Here's another favorite tilapia recipe. 
It's fast, flavorful, and so easy.
A good one to add to your recipe rotation.
 Use real butter and fresh parsley. Fresh lemons
are best, but bottled will do.
If you don't have garlic cloves, just use lots 
of garlic salt in place of the regular salt.
 Add it all to the melted butter in the pan.
Bale for 15 minutes. That's It! Easy!
I served it with purple potatoes, and
fresh green beans for lots of flavor and color.
 Lemon Garlic Butter Tilapia
3 tilapia filets
3 T butter
2 T lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 T minced fresh parsley
salt and pepper
Put the butter in a 9x13 baking dish 
and put in a 400º oven while it preheats.
Remove the pan from the oven and add
the lemon juice and garlic to the melted 
butter. Shake the pan to blend. Add the 
tilapia and turn over once to coat with butter
Season well with salt and pepper. Sprinkle
the parsley over the top. Bake for 15 minutes
until opaque. Serve and drizzle with extra
butter sauce from the pan.
serves 2-3

  1. This looks beautiful, Rita! I love tilapia, but my husband doesn't, so I never fix it. I am trying to get him to leave town for a couple of weeks to visit his family and friends back east, so am making up a meal planner to make everything that he doesn't like during his absence. This has just been added to the list. :-)
