Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Mince the garlic into fine pieces.

Place the garlic in a saucepan, add butter and dillweed or parsley.

Add one dash of salt, one dash of pepper and one dash of paprika powder to the saucepan. The exact amount will depend on your own preferences.

Heat the saucepan over low heat until the butter is fully melted and begins to simmer.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and brush some of its content over the bottom of a baking dish.

Put the tilapia fillets on top of the garlic butter mix.

Use the remaining garlic butter mix to brush the top of each tilapia fillet.

Place the baking dish in the oven and let the tilapia bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
