Baked Garlic Lemon Tilapia

Let me start this post by saying, I am NOT a seafood person.  Growing up, I occasionally ate fish sticks and walleye my grandfather would catch and fry up in some yummy breading. 

There are many good things for you in fish, so I'm trying to be more conscious about eating it.  I have found that I like tilapia because it's a mild fish.  Because I have to remind myself I have individually frozen tilapia in the freezer, I keep forgetting to buy spices (such as Old Bay or Lemon Pepper) when I'm at the store.  My brother's girlfriend pinned this recipe on Pinterest, and I really like it!

Baked Garlic Lemon Tilapia

6 (6 oz each) tilapia filets
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 tsp fresh parsley (I used dried)
salt and pepper
cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Melt butter on a low flame in a small sauce pan. Add garlic and saute on low for about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and shut off flame.

3. Spray the bottom of a baking dish lightly with cooking spray. Place the fish on top and season with salt and pepper. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish and top with fresh parsley. Bake at 400° until cooked, about 15 minutes.
