    canarygirl's Note:

    You can do this with any white fish, sea bass is great this way. Fish is often served this way in the Canary Islands, though usually it is the whole fish instead of fillets. YUM!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Season tilapia fillets with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Put fillets in first, and when they start to turn color a bit (after 1-2 minutes) add garlic slices.
    4. 4
      Continue cooking about 4 minutes or so, then flip fillets.
    5. 5
      Fry until cooked through, and fish flakes easily with a fork-- this will depend entirely on the thickness of your fillets, so you will need to watch them carefully.
    6. 6
      The garlic should turn a dark golden brown, but not be burned, if you notice that the garlic is starting to burn, spoon it over the fish, so it is no longer in contact with the pan.
    7. 7
      Serve with freshly squeezed lemon juice and garnish with chopped parsley.

      Delicious, easy, and healthy! I only had one thin tilapia fillet, which I knew would cook through very quickly, so I put one clove of sliced garlic in at the same time as the fish. They both were done perfectly.

      We thought this was so-so. I used half the amount of oil called for and we thought it was much too oily. The taste was ok, but not anything I would make again. Wish we had liked it more!
