Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Ladies and Gentlemen… tonight’s meal has been brought to you by… The Boy!

I was so proud to come home knowing it was The Boy’s night to cook, and to see a recipe pulled up on the computer, and a yummy meal being completed in the kitchen. The only instructions I gave him were: “Cook tilapia, use whatever we have already in the house.” And TA-DA…


Lemon Garlic Tilapia


4 tilapia fillets
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Rinse tilapia fillets under cool water, and pat dry with paper towels.

Place fillets in baking dish. Pour lemon juice over fillets, then drizzle butter on top. Sprinkle with garlic, parsley, and pepper.

Bake in preheated oven until the fish is white and flakes when pulled apart with a fork, about 30 minutes.

And done on the eve of his 35th birthday too!
