Baked Lemon Garlic Tilapia: All Under Just 30 Minutes!
Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Then, grease the baking dish with oil or lay small baking sheet over it.
Rinse the tilapia fillets under water and pat them dry with a tissue paper. Once they are dry, season them with salt and pepper, and place them over the baking sheet.
In a bowl, add melted butter, chopped garlic cloves, red chilli flakes, lemon juice and chopped parsley. Give this mix a good stir and pour it over the fillets.
Bake the tilapia fillets for 15 to 20 minutes until they become tender. Garnish the dish with the lemon zest and serve it with a side salad.
If you need that extra-tangy flavour, use lime juice instead of lemon zest.
