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.

  • Stir butter and garlic paste together in a bowl. Divide garlic mixture evenly between two bowls, reserving one bowl for serving.

  • Stir garlic powder, oregano, Italian seasoning, parsley, and salt together in a bowl.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Simple and easy to make with ingredients I almost always have on hand. Basting with butter several times made it extremely moist. I used thyme instead of parsley and skipped the lemon. I also used minced garlic rather than roasted garlic. I thought it had plenty of flavor. This will probably be my go to tilapia recipe now. Thanks! Read More
