It is a simple dish that can be baked in the oven or cooked on the stove.


4 tilapia fillets (about 3.5 ounces each)

¾ cup of water

1 ½ teaspoon of unsalted butter

½ teaspoon of minced garlic

Lemon Pepper Seasoning


Preheat your skillet and add the water. Lightly season tilapia with the Lemon Pepper Seasoning on both sides.

In your sauté pan, add the butter and garlic. Simmer for about 3-5 minutes.

After the water comes to a gentle boil, place the fillets into the skillet and add your sauté mix.

Cover and cook tilapia approximately 4 minutes on one side. Flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes without the lid.

Remove and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
