  • Author: admin


4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 head garlic, minced (about ¼ cup)

6 Tilapia filets

Olive oil to drizzle over fish

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon oregano flakes

1 teaspoon parsley flakes

4 shallots, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 400F. Melt the butter, with the olive oil, in a saute pan, over medium-low heat. Add

the garlic and sauté until soft and translucent; watch closely so it doesn’t burn. Remove and set aside.

Pat the fish dry with some paper towels. Drizzle it with olive oil and set aside on a tray.

Mix the paprika, old bay, cayenne, salt, oregano, and parsley together. Sprinkle over the fish, turn, and

do the other side too.


In a large baking dish, pour the garlic/butter mixture in the bottom of the dish and lay the sliced shallots

over it. Place the fillets on top of the shallots. Bake for 12-20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily.
