Lemon and Garlic Tilapia

No matter how much a person likes and is good at cooking, there's always room for improvement and I am no exception! Here's a more refined and tastier moist, flaky version of how I originally made this dish.



  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice or more to taste
  • fresh Parmesan cheese to taste, finely shredded
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley flakes, finely chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a glass baking dish or foil boat.

Rinse tilapia fillets, pat dry, season with salt and pepper and place in baking dish or foil boats.

Melt the butter with the olive oil over medium high heat in a small saucepan and saute the garlic until just softened and fragrant. Be sure to turn down the heat a bit if butter is getting too hot.

Remove butter and oil from heat, mix in the lemon juice and drizzle over fillets. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley and bake for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.
