"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."

  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.

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.

Easy to make but not enough flavor for me.

Delicious light meal.
