Garlic Tilapia

Pin It

Before having this meal, Chris wasn't a fan of tilapia. I'm not sure if that was because he had never had it before or because he prefers other fish instead, but either way, it was never something he wanted.

But one night, he didn't have a choice. I saw some tilapia on sale (that's one of the good things about's always so cheap!) so I decided to pick some up and give it a try. If he wasn't a tilapia fan before, he definitely was after this meal!
It literally took 4 minutes to put together and then another 7 to cook. That's it! The flavors are simple, but the garlic tastes delicious after sitting under the broiler for a few minutes and the other spices really stand out. You can serve this with lemon, but I didn't even think it needed any additional flavor. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 6 (6 oz.) tilapia fillets 
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon, for serving

Wash fish and pat dry. Line broiler pan with tin foil. Place fish on the tin foil and season with salt, pepper, oregano, and parsley. Drizzle with olive oil and top with crushed garlic.

Set broiler to low and place fish about 8 inches from the flame. Cook until fish is cooked through, about 7 minutes (be careful not to burn garlic). Serve with freshly squeezed lemon juice.
