Great recipe, but I made it with a few revisions: 2 large cloves of garlic minced instead of 8 halved, 3 fillets instead of 4, I added paprika to the garlic butter mixture and I reduced the cooking time without ever turning the fillets. I heated the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, added the garlic & parsley and heated for another 30 seconds (just long enough to melt the butter), then I added the remaining ingredients. I poured the mixture in the pan, put the tilapia on top of it & spooned the mixture over the top of the fillets. I thought the cook time was too long based on other tilapia recipes, so I cooked them at 375 & checked them at 20 minutes. They weren't done, so I cooked them for another 10 minutes. The fillets were still a little soft, but the butter & garlic were brown. I cooked them for another 5 minutes & the fillets were done--although some places were crispy and others were soft. In spite of the uneven cooking the flavor was great & my family loved it. Next time I will probably reduce the temperature to 350 & try 30 minutes. (The oven loses heat every time you open the door, so that's probably why it took so long at 375 with all the turning.)
