Garlic Herb Tilapia  

Delicious recipe I grabbed from McCormick. This was my first attempt with Tilapia and I was not close to being disappointed. It was fantastic. Also, I don't normally cook fish that I end up eating so cooking this myself was a new experience (I have said I'm not even close to being a fantastic cook). This was very simple and so quick!

Tip: Fish is done when it flakes easily when touched with a fork.

Makes 4 servings.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning (basil, oregano, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, black pepper, red pepper flakes, can be left out)
1/2 teaspoon Mustard, Ground
1 pound tilapia fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt (we tend to leave out salt)
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper, Ground

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix butter, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and ground mustard in medium bowl until well blended.

2. Place fish on foil-lined shallow baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread fish with herb butter mixture.

3. Bake 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Note: Try recipe with red snapper, striped bass, flounder or sole. If desired, substitute 1/4 teaspoon each Basil Leaves and Thyme Leaves for the Italian Seasoning.

Looks good! I'm going to try it - we really like tilapia though I usually make it with lemon juice and seasoning salt. I have lots of fresh herbs right now so it's a good time to try. :)

I'm not a huge lemon fan so any other options is good to me. Yes, right now having all the fresh herbs is great!

Yum! Although would have to substitute the tilapia for something like Cod, as we don't get that fish here.

There are some substitute fish at the bottom of the recipe but I think cod would be great this way.
