Recipes | Talapia Dinner

It seems like many people I know have had a bad experience with talapia fish. All I’m saying is that you should try making it like this before deciding to never eat it again (it won’t let you down!)


– 2 fresh talapia filets (or thawed if frozen)

– 1 clove of garlic thinly chopped or minced in a press

– olive oil

– juice from one lime

– dried basil flakes

– Himalayan pink salt

– lemon pepper

– 2 Tbs. grass fed butter

What to do:

– Preheat oven to 375.

– Spray glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place both fish filets in dish.

– Sprinkle each fish with lime juice and olive oil, then top with garlic, salt, pepper, and basil.

– Cook for 10 minutes, then top each filet with a tablespoon of butter, return to oven and cook 10-15 more minutes until fish is flakey and cooked all the way through.

I like to serve mine with a sweet potato and spaghetti squash, but you can get really creative with sides… I may try roasted Brussel sprouts next time!
