Herb Crusted Tilapia with Garlic Butter

Recipe by  

"Broiled tilapia crusted in herb and drizzled with garlic butter is simply divine in this gluten-free nightshade-free dish. If your diet allows, I highly recommend adding 1/2 teaspoon onion powder to the seasoning mix."

Directions

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Brush a broiler pan with olive oil.
  2. Stir butter and garlic paste together in a bowl. Divide garlic mixture evenly between two bowls, reserving one bowl for serving.
  3. Stir garlic powder, oregano, Italian seasoning, parsley, and salt together in a bowl.
  4. Place tilapia fillets on prepared broiler pan; brush each fillet with garlic butter and sprinkle each with Italian seasoning mixture, reserving 1/2 the garlic butter in the bowl and 1/2 the Italian seasoning mixture.
  5. Broil fillets in the preheated oven for 2 minutes, brush again with garlic butter, and broil for 2 more minutes. Turn fillets over. Brush with garlic butter and sprinkle with remaining Italian seasoning mixture. Broil until tilapia fillets flake easily with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with reserved garlic butter and lemon juice.

Simple and easy to make with ingredients I almost always have on hand. Basting with butter several times made it extremely moist. I used thyme instead of parsley and skipped the lemon. I also used minced garlic rather than roasted garlic. I thought it had plenty of flavor. This will probably be my go to tilapia recipe now. Thanks!

Easy to make but not enough flavor for me.

Great recipe! Very quick and easy. Perfect for a quick healthy meal to whip up after work. I paired the fish with butternut squash risotto and Italian style peas.
