Lemon Garlic Tilapia

This was easy, and delicious. I love finding new recipes for fish, because I know it's so good for us. And you know what? My kids really like tilapia. My three year old asked for seconds! I always love it when that happens. So try this out soon!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia
adapted from All Recipes

4 tilapia fillets
2 lemons
4 tablespoon butter
2 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
freshly ground pepper to taste
4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Rinse tilapia fillets under cool water, and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper and place fillets in baking dish. Melt butter in small sauce pan of skillet. Add garlic and parsley. Cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is slightly cooked and fragrant. While butter mixture is cooking, squeeze 1/2 of a lemon over each fillet, then pour the butter mixture evenly over each fillet. Bake in preheated oven until the fish is white and begins to flake easily. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese on top of each fillet, and bake another 2-3 minutes.
