Baked Lemon Tilapia

I’m not much of a Sea Food girl, but when it comes to shrimp and tilapia my mouth is drooling.

Tilapia is something that I’m still experimenting with, grilling is my next adventure, baking is my tried and true way to cook it.

Credit is due for this Foil Packet Baked Lemon Tilapia recipe, shared in a newsletter from Hungry-Girl, with a few modifications this has become my favorite way to eat Tilapia.

Baked Lemon Tilapia

It all starts with the spread. In a small bowl, mix together 1 Tsp. of butter, 1/2 Tsp. of parsley, 1/2 Tsp. of minced Garlic and 1/8 Tsp of salt.

This is enough to cover one 6oz Tilapia, if you are cooking more then just double the recipe for however many you are making.

Baked Lemon Tilapia

Line a large piece of aluminum foil with 6-8 pieces of asparagus, if your stalks are larger then you might stick with 6 of them.

Place the tilapia on top of the asparagus stalks, then spread the top with your butter/garlic mixture and top with two slices of lemon.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Fold the foil over the tilapia and pinch the ends closed, creating a well sealed packet.

Depending on the size of your Tilapia will depend on your cooking time. Check your packet after 15 minutes, I’ve had them take anywhere from 15 minutes to 25 minutes. Once your tilapia is cooked it will flake easily with a fork.

So easy to make, this Baked Lemon Tilapia is a perfect Summer time dish and easy on the waist line!
