Prep Time5 mins

Total Time20 mins


  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine softened
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ΒΌ cup chopped green onions
  • 4 tilapia fillets about 6 ounces each
  • extra chopped green onions for garnish optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Zest lemon & squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Whisk in the zest, butter (or margarine), parsley, salt, pepper, & green onions.
  • Place tilapia fillets in a casserole dish or baking pan. I like to like mine with tinfoil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Top with the butter mixture. Bake fillets for 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
