    Mrs. Christmas's Note:

    This recipe was somewhat of an accident for me. My mom had prepared some homemade garlic butter for some reason and I mistakenly used it instead of regular butter to saute some Tilapia filets. I usually put lemon on my fish, but we were out, so I used lime juice instead. Everyone really liked it, so I make it all the time now. Even my very picky husband requests it! It's easy to adjust this recipe to feed more or less people.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add tilapia fillets (thawed if frozen) to the pan.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the fish with garlic powder (use more or less depending on your tastes).
    4. 4
      Pour lime juice over fish (use more or less depending on your tastes).
    5. 5
      Saute the tilapia until the fillets are opaque and easily flake with a fork (I usually turn once during cooking).
    6. 6
      Serve while hot. I like to serve this with a side of rice pilaf and california blend veggies.

      This was between a four and a five. The lime juice adds a lot of flavor, and was delicious. I did add some pepper, but no salt. The lime juice seemed to take care of that. Because of the ease and speed of the recipe, I'll go with a five, Thanks for sharing!
