 Ingredients List

  • 1 pound (454 g) Tilapia, 4-5 fillets
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) flour
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons oil (olive, avocado, butter etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


1. Rinse the Tilapia fillets under cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Place flour in a shallow bowl and flour the fillets from both sides. Shake off excess. Season fillets with lemon pepper from both sides.
2. Heat a non-stick skillet over high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and heat as well. Place half of Tilapia fillets in pan, turn heat down to medium and sauté for about 4 minutes on each side.
3. Repeat with another tablespoon of oil and remaining fillets. Remove Tilapia from pan and cover to keep warm.
4. Turn heat to high and add butter and lemon juice to the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes for butter to turn golden and take on a nutty aroma. Whisk in parsley and remove from heat.
5. Serve sautéed Tilapia with rice (or carb of choice) and drizzle each fillet with a little lemon-butter sauce.
