A dinner healthy quick recipe can be as elegant and delicious as served in a high end restaurant. The price you pay is surely much lower.
This tilapia with lemon garlic butter sauce recipe was inspired by a restaurant seafood entree. It was the seared sea bass at the Cornell's Italian Restaurant in Schenectady NY.
Although sea bass is a more pricy choice, it is still much, much cheaper even if you serve that same kind of fish at home. Plus, it is beautiful to watch.

If you want to replace butter with something healthier for the sauce, you can do either one of the following:
a) All extra Virginia olive oil
b) Half butter and half extra virgin olive oil
I use frozen tilapia in this recipe. The fish filet could come into different sizes and thickness. I highly recommend to have all of them in similar size and thickness. This will guarantee that they all cook through within the same time.
