1 1/2lb Fresh Tilapia
2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 minced garlic cloves
2 tablespoons of finely chopped parsley
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

In a skillet add the butter, oil and garlic, cook on very low heat for about 5 minutes or until the butter is melted and the garlic is transparent. (DO NOT BURN OR BROWN THE GARLIC, if you do, Your fish will have a very strong garlic flavor)

Once the butter is transparent, remove the skillet from the flame, and remove the garlic from the butter, just dispose the garlic, the butter should be infused with all the flavor now, so we don't need the garlic at all. Add the fresh parsley to the garlic butter, season with salt and ground black pepper, mix well and cover the fish with this butter.

Let the fish marinate in this butter for about 10 minutes before baking.

Bake at 400º for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked.

Served with a bed of salad greens or white rice.
