Baked Lemon & Garlic Tilapia

Tilapia fillets are bathed in lemon juice and melted butter, seasoned with garlic and parsley, and baked to flaky perfection.


3-6 Tilapia filets (6 oz. each)
6-8 cloves garlic, crushed and diced large
2 1/2 tbsp butter (4 tbsp – if no cooking spray)
4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 tsp fresh Parsley (or dried)
1 tsp Oregano (fresh or dried)
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400°.

Melt 2 1/2 tbsp of butter on a low flame in a small sauce pan. (the rest will be melted and placed into the pan for baking if not cooking spray is available) Add garlic and saute on low for about 1 minute. Add all but 1 tbsp of the lemon juice, shut off flame, and remove from heat. Spray the bottom of a baking dish lightly with cooking spray (or remaining melted butter) and 1 tbsp of the lemon juice. Place the fish on top and season with herbs, salt, and pepper. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish and top with fresh parsley for garnish.
