Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Pin It Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Lemon Garlic Tilapia just out of the oven
I baked Lemon Garlic Tilapia recently and it was superb. The fish was tender and cooked perfectly. The flavor profile from the garlic, butter, lemon juice, and spices was great and balanced. See recipe below.

My tilapia

Ingredients
2 Tilapia Filets

3 tablespoons Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed

1 tablespoon Butter, melted

2 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped

Bunch of Parsley, roughly chopped

Coarse Salt

Cracked Black Pepper

Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Tilapia rested and ready to serve

Directions
Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Line baking dish with aluminum foil, set aside.

Rinse tilapia in cool water and pat dry with paper towels.

In a small pan, melt butter on low heat. Set aside to cool.

Place filets in baking dish, and season with salt, pepper and crushed pepper flakes.

Pour lemon juice over the fish and then drizzle over with the melted butter.

Sprinkle garlic over the filets.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Let fish rest in baking dish for 5 minutes.

Before serving, sprinkle fresh parsley over the top.

I served with Spanish rice and black beans.

Enjoy!
