Yield: Makes 2 to 4 Servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced

In saucepan, combine butter, garlic, pepper, salt, dillweed, and paprika. Heat over low heat until butter is melted and starts simmering. Remove from heat.

Brush top of each tilapia fillet with the seasoned butter mixture. Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes, until tilapia flakes easily with a fork.
Serves 2 to 4.

I didn't bake it, I cooked it on the skillet and had to double the ingredients but it tasted great. Both my children loved it (They love tilapia). I might try it baked next time like it said, but it was great. I will definitely make this again.
