I really am not a fish eating person...don't get me wrong I love shellfish just not regular fish. I eat sushi but really only tuna stuff. I was adventurous this week and decided to buy frozen Tilapia fillets at the supermarket. Partly because of this month's theme and partly because it was cheap.
Recipe: Tilapia with Garlic Butter.
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
pinch dried dillweed or parsley
4 tilapia fillets
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 a little of the butter mixture in the bottom of a shallow baking dish (line baking dish with foil, if desired) then place tilapia fillets on the buttered area. 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.
Review: It wasn't that bad and I actually ate 2 fillets but next time I think I would at least double the butter part to get more taste on the fish. It smelled really good when I melted everything together. I would make it again.
