I can see why this has so many excellent ratings. I use white rice flour to make it gluten free. Fresh lemon is a must and if you really enjoy lemon then I might suggest adding a little of the zest as well. This is something I know I will make again.

Bought some tilapia at a seafood market here in Florida and found this recipe to prepare it. The combination of the freshness of the fish and the silky smooth sauce that this produces was absolutely awesome! Could have used a little more seasoning, but will be an easy fix next time I make it. Thank you so much for posting this super easy and delicious recipe!
I never cooked Tilapia before last night and can't believe how easy this recipe is. It came out perfect and my better half and kids couldn't believe that I actually cooked it! I had a pound of Jumbo shrimp and cooked them the exact same way in another skillet and served the Tilapia and Shrimp with the lemon butter sauce on top. PERFECT! If you want to impress someone with a delicious seafood dinner, this is the dish! I'm going to try it with some scallops next time! Thanks again! Italianmomof2
This was a hit!! I added Old Bay seasoning directly to fish prior to coating with seasoned flour though....
5 stars for simplicity! 5 stars for taste! 5 stars for a quick recipes! 5 stars for freshness! 5 stars for a very workable recipes! I used only the 2 tablespoons of butter and no oil for frying. Then skipped the butter and used olive oil after frying, cutting out the 2 tablespoons of butter. I skipped the salt and seasoned with fresh cracked pepper before dusting with flour. I also added some minced garlic, diced red onions and orange bell peppers after flipping the fish. Thanks!!!!
Made this tonight for dinner to go along with a salad. I did make a few changes to suit our taste. I omitted parsley (I didn't have any), I seasoned the flour with lemon pepper and garlic salt and I used 2 lemons instead of one and also used the zest of both lemons. We loved the buttery lemony taste of this tender fish. I was very pleased with the ease of preparation and how quickly it came together. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe!
I love to cook and do so every day, therefore I can appreciate easy and flavorful recipes. Sometimes I do get out of my kitchen, though...like I go to Walmart and sometimes to the mall. ;-)
Easy and good. We used Andys Fish Breading. Next time i will skip melting the last 2 tbsp of butter, dont think they are necessary. My husband almost burn the house trying to make this last night. He did not wanted my help and melted the butter on high in a covered pan, when he opened the lid got a flame and to make it worst he moved the pan into the sink and Turned the water on! We lost our appetite after having to clean the blinds, opened the windows, tuning the ceiling fans, the ac fan etc etc. when I asked him what recipe he was following he pointed to the part that says wait until the butter stops bubbling. Bottom line great recipe but do not let your unexperienced significant other follow it literally. Stay beside and be his "common sense" ;-)
Too Fishy and not a good fishy!<br/>I agree needs a lot more seasoning!!!!<br/>I guess if you like the taste of tilapia and the fishy taste then you will like it.
Wow!!! I prepared this dish in less than 15 minutes and it tastes awesome. If you are looking for a quick recipe this is it!! Didn't have fresh parley so I used the condiment type, still great!
