Lemon and Garlic Tilapia

Most often I am cooking for one so adjust the ingredients to this recipe accordingly. Lightly buttered rice sprinkled with slivered almonds and vinaigrette dressed salad are a nice compliment to this dish.



  • 1 tilapia fillet (about 1/3 to 1/2 lb)
  • 3 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1/4 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • Pepper to taste, if desired
  • Cooking spray, if desired


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a foil boat with a little non-stick cooking spray.

Rinse tilapia fillet and pat dry. Melt butter, turn off heat and stir in minced garlic and lemon juice. Place fillet in foil boat and evenly pour butter mixture over top of fillet. Sprinkle with parsley and pepper.

Bake in oven until the fish is white and flakes when tested with a fork, 10 to 30 minutes depending on oven and thickness of fillet.

Tastes good baked on the grill, too.
