    Quick and simple recipe with great results! I added a bit of seafood seasoning to the sauce to punch it up a notch, and broiled the fish for the last few minutes, turned out perfect!

    Used rice to soak up some of the extra butter sauce when it was done cooking

    This is very good. I wasn’t a fan of talapia ‘cause I couldn’t find good recipes! This one tops the list!

    The seasonings on the tilapia was very good, but tilapia is too bland for my taste. I’llt ry it on other fish and seafood.

    The tilapia was well seasoned & perfectly tender/flaky However, instead of baking it in a oven, I cooked the tilapia & herbed butter mixture in a plastic wrap covered glass pan in the microwave for about 4 & 1/2 minutes

    Quick go to with keeping frozen Tilapia on-hand for a weeknight meal. I go heavy on garlic and a touch more butter than recipe calls for. Have added capers and a splash of white wine to sauce sometimes which almost gives this dish a Mediterranean flavor.

    Omg, fantastic! Used celery salt instead of onion powder but added vidalia onions under the fish to compensate. I also used fresh cilantro instead of parsley. Just amazing!

    Everyone in my family of 5 loved these, even the one who doesn’t really like Fish very much. I followed the directions exactly and it was great.

    Delicious! I melted the butter in the baking dish in the oven, patted the fish with a paper towel, laid them in the butter, topped them with everything, then brushed on some butter. Set broiler 500. Bottom rack a few minutes til fish was almost at temp then moved to top rack. Served with honey roasted carrots.

    This was easy to make. My husband liked that it didn’t take fishy or have a rubbery texture at all. Too much sauce left over, though.
