Terrific Tilapia Loins Recipe


INGREDIENTS:
  • 4 - 6 Tilapia loins, about 4 oz. each, frozen
  • 2 small lemons, or 1 large lemon
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
  • 2 TBS unsalted butter or buttery-spread
  • 2 - 3 tsp. Creole seasoning (I use Tony Chachere's)
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish

Terrific Tilapia Loins Recipe

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 13" x 9" glass baking dish or metal sheet pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In small saucepan or in microwave, melt the butter. Stir in the minced garlic, if using. Take off heat. 
  3. Squeeze juice from one small lemon (or half of large) into the butter-garlic mixture and slice the other lemon (or other half of large).
  4. Place frozen Tilapia loins into the prepared baking dish or pan, leaving a little space between each. Pour the butter-garlic-lemon mixture evenly over loins. (It will freeze to the surface creating a glaze that will melt into the fish as it cooks). Sprinkle with creole seasoning. Use as little or as much as you like. We like a lot.
  5. Top each frozen loin with a slice of lemon or two. Bake in oven for 25 - 30 minutes. NOTE: if the loins you have are smaller than 4 oz., watch them and reduce bake time. Fish is done once it flakes easily with a fork. Do not overbake!
  6. Remove tilapia to serving tray. Spoon juices from pan over each piece of fish. Garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
