I like Tilapia especially for its nutty flavors. This is a very easy and fast recipe to roast Tilapia, which brings out all the delicious flavors of tilapia. Serve with pasta, salad or bread.

Easy and tasty. I doubled most of the ingredients for 4 fillets.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drizzle lemon juice over Tilapia fillet. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Add thyme and garlic.
  3. Roast fillet on medium high heat on each side for about 3 minutes. Do not overcook.
  4. Remove fillet from pan and drain on paper towels.
  5. Add onion slices to pan and cook until soft for about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Serve fillet with onion slices.
  7. NOTE: Can easily be adapted for more than 1 serving. Just increase the amount of ingredients to your needs, but use as less oil as possible and do not use more than 8 sprigs thyme and 2 cloves garlic for one pan.
