Tilapia with Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce
Beautiful, Easy And Healthy

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.

The nice thing about this healthy easy dinner is that you spend about the same amount on a restaurant dish to buy all the ingredients which can feed 4.

Plus, it is beautiful to watch.

Tilapia with Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce

Prep Time: 10 Minutes   Cook Time: 20 Minutes   Serving: 4

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


8 Thinly Sliced Tilapia Filets
1 Box (5 ounces) Pre-washed Baby Spinach (divided)
2 Vine Tomatoes (seeded; diced and divided)
Non-stick Cooking Spray
Salt and Pepper

For Sauce Only
1 Lemon (zested and juiced)
6 tablespoons Butter
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)

  1. Preheat broiler (be sure that the space between the heat source and the rack is about 6 inches apart so that you don't burn the fish)
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat it with non-stick cooking spray
  3. Single layer the fish on the lined baking sheet
  4. Add salt and pepper on top of the fish
  5. Cook the fish under the broiler for 10-12 minutes until cooked through
  6. Equally divide the baby spinach among 4 serving plates
  7. Preheat a medium skillet at medium heat and melt the butter
  8. Add garlic and 1 tablespoons lemon juice into the melted butter (I realized that the juice of a whole lemon could be very sour. So, taste it before adding more)
  9. Transfer 2 filets of tilapia on the bed of spinach for each plate
  10. Add butter lemon garlic butter sauce on top of the fish
  11. Add diced tomatoes and garnish with lemon zest and serve
