Baked Tilapia with Garlic Butter Mix

I always enjoyed growing up in a household that loved to eat fish. There are so many fish to choose from, with many different tastes and can be made in many different ways. Tilapia is a white fish that you really have to season properly to give your taste buds a jolt or what can happen is a very bland tasting fish. As always I love to bake my fish in the oven, this keeps your home from having that wonderful fish smell that your nose stops smelling but everyone that comes to visit gets a good whiff off.

This dish involves boneless tilapia fillets which if you choose, you can cut in half if your looking to feed a large assortment of people or just so that you have left overs for another day. The garlic butter and seasoning used makes sure that you are enjoying this fish dish. I broil the tilapia just at the end of baking for a few minutes just to add some crispness to the fish. You can add vegetables in the baking dish to cook at the same time as the tilapia so that you have your side. Carrots, broccoli and green beans are a few of the vegetables I like to place inside the dish with the tilapia.
