Can I share a little secret with you?
I love coffee. Especially when it’s the first cup of coffee. I love coffee so piping hot it almost burns my lips. I love coffee more than potatoes, more than chocolate brownies… almost more than my new pots and pans. But they’re shiny, new and expensive so they win the number one spot. I’m tellin you all of this because… It’s 11:21pm. And at approximately 11:07pm I brewed a large pot of coffee. Why? Well… because I wanted to.
What you’ve never brewed a pot of coffee just short of midnight? Well try it sometime. Take a risk. Be a rebel.
So, now would probably be a good time to apologize to you.
Because this recipe has nothing to do with coffee… quite the opposite actually.
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!
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 one garlic clove.
Then add the juice of half a lemon and the melted butter.
Next, finely chop up about two tablespoons of fresh parsley.
And then add that along with the kosher salt and black pepper.
Next, whisk until combined and the salt and pepper are mixed throughout.
Then, arrange the tilapia on a small baking sheet. My sheet pan is non-stick, but if it wasn’t I’d line with foil.
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 rice.
Ps… Your house will smell amazing!
