Excellent recipe! The olive oil and garlic complimented the fish perfectly. Even the members of my family that generally hate fish asked for seconds!

This was really good and so simple and healthy. My husband and I try to eat fish twice a week...this recipe is part of the weekly rotation! If you get the EVOO hot enough, it crusts the outside of the fish. Absolutely DELICIOUS! Thank you for posting!!

We are still raving about this! The garlic is to die for--we were fighting over it. Perfect marriage of flavors and very easy to make. Thanks, Donna

I was impressed how easy and yummy this was. We've done both tilapia and flounder this way and was a very nice dinner

DH & I wanted to try tilapia, so we used this recipe. It was great! Putting garlic on top of fish as it browned flavored the fish very well. The slight crunchy, nutty flavor of the garlic was the perfect addition to the tilapia. Only thing I'll change is to use a non-stick skillet next time!

Perfectly yummy. I like your suggestion of scooping the garlic onto the fish once it begins to brown. It's key! Loads of lemon and parsley make it perfect!

I was underwhelmed by this recipe. It was pretty bland and didn't have enough going on for my taste. I feel like it's not a recipe, just a cooking method- saute fish in olive oil, voila! For me, tilapia tastes like dirt, and you have to add a little bit of something-something to cover that up. I liked the idea of slicing the garlic, because it was easier to move around in the pan than if it were crushed/minced. I ate this with roasted broccoli and sriracha mayo, which definitely helped to liven it up a bit.

Wonderful!!! I skipped the lemon and parsley and don't think that it was even missed. It cooked up really fast...I think that from start to finish eating, it was 30 minutes. Thank you so much for posting this delicious recipe!
