Lemon Butter Tilapia


Lemon Butter Tilapia

Some nights I am fighting myself to find something quick and fairly healthy to feed my children.  I am just like every other mom in the world, busy.  Tonight’s dinner was tough.  I am trying to get ready for Thanksgiving, to go away for a few days and keep the kids on schedule for their appointments and classes.

As I was digging through the freezer I found two bags of Tilapia.  Dinner!

I found a recipe on Pinterst for Lemon and Butter Tilapia from Love, Life, Lavins on Blogspot. com.  I had all the ingredients on hand and it looked incredibly simple.

Verdict:

My daughter said this was her favorite fish dish yet.  It was tangy from the lemon juice and very flavorful.  My son thought the lemon juice was a bit too much but he ate two servings of it!

I served this dish with a side of leftover Vegetable Lo Mein and Broccoli.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. frozen tilapia fillets
  • 1 TBSP dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. ground paprika
  • 4 TBSP butter
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 TBSP lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Lay the tilapia in a single layer in the pan.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl until well combined.  Pour mixture over the fish.
  4. Bake fish for 20-22 minutes until fish is cooked through and flaky.
  5. Let sit for 3 minutes before serving.
