This easy lemon garlic tilapia is as simple as it is delicious! Tilapia is brushed with a fresh lemon, garlic a herb butter, then quickly broiled. Perfect for any night of the week.
The recipe I’m about to bestow upon your eyes is probably one of the easiest recipes you will find here on Simply Scratch. All right, maybe the second easiest, ya know… next to the Nutella Banana Split. But it is easy… and boy-o-boy is it ever tasty!
It’s so good that my girls quickly gobble it up and ask for seconds! And when kids ask for seconds, you know you did good!
Here… how about I shut up and show you how it’s done!
To Make This Easy Lemon Garlic Tilapia You Will Need:
- juice of half a lemon
- melted butter
- fresh parsley
- kosher salt
- ground black pepper
- 4 fresh tilapia fillets
First, pull the ingredients out and get going. What I love about this recipe is that the simplest of ingredients create such a delicious dish.
Next, into a medium bowl; press or mince 1 garlic clove.
Then add the juice of half a lemon and 3 tablespoons melted butter.
Next, finely chop up about 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley.
And then add that along with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
Next, whisk until combined and the salt and pepper are mixed throughout.
Then, arrange 4 tilapia on a small baking sheet. My sheet pan is non-stick, but if it wasn’t I’d line with foil or spray with olive oil.
Next, drizzle equal amounts on to each fillet.
And then spread around to evenly cover the fish. Place in a preheated oven for 6-8 minutes. Then rotate the pan and put the broiler on for 5 more minutes or until the fish is completely opaque and flakes.
Serve and enjoy! I like to serve this tilapia with this broccoli recipe and brown or wild rice.
Ps… Your house will smell incredible!
