Garlic Butter Baked Tilapia Fillets

We have some tilapia fillets I bought a little while ago and I saw this recipe when I was browsing through all the wonderful food blogs I enjoy reading each week and thought this would be a great and quick weeknight meal for us all. Kent had no trouble putting this one together and getting it in the oven and was surprised at just how quickly and easily it came together! My husband is not a big fan of tilapia but he was surprised that he enjoyed this one! They both cleaned their plates in no time. :) We served this with steamed peas and a Caesar salad for a "carb-free" meal which I'm trying to do at least one night a week for Kenneth.

So glad to find another fish dinner that my boys enjoy! I really love seafood and would love to have it in the weekly "rotation" of meals more often so it's always encouraging to have successful dinners featuring fish or shrimp. Kenneth does really enjoy salmon, and that one always goes over well, and although I enjoy salmon as well I generally like the white fish best myself.
