- 4 tilapia filets
- 4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup grated/shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- zest of one lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
- lemon slices for serving
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pat tilapia dry (if frozen, it should be thawed first) with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Lay on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for 10-12 minutes. While fish is baking, mix butter with garlic, lemon zest and parmesan cheese.
Remove fish from oven and gently flip. Spread about 1/2 tablespoons of butter mixture on the fish, and heat the broiler in your oven. Set fish under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes, or until cheese gets golden and bubbly.
Serve with lemon.
