Lemon Garlic Butter Tilapia Fillets

Share

Here’s another super easy recipe that makes a mild tilapia sing with flavor. This is one of Jimmie’s favorite ways to eat fish and mine, too! I don’t broil it, but rather slowly roast it to keep the meat flaky and tender. Plus, we love the crispy edge that it gets from cooking it this way.Lemon-Garlic-Butter-Tilapia-Fillets-Culinary-Craftiness

Depending on the number of fillets you’re preparing, you can halve or double the ingredients.

Lemon Garlic Butter Tilapia Fillets

10-12 Tilapia fillets
1-1/2 sticks of butter, room temperature
3 heaping teaspoons jarred minced garlic
3-5 lemons, sliced thin + 3 tsp. lemon juice
Salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Lightly salt and pepper each side of tilapia and arrange on a large jellyroll pan.

Mix together butter, garlic, and lemon juice. Smear a teaspoon of the mixture on top of each fillet. Arrange lemon slices on top of the butter mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the fish is golden and the lemons are slightly roasted.

Serve with extra wedges of lemon, if desired.
