Step 1

preheat oven to 400

saute' the veggies in a little olive oil and salt and pepper to taste

put all ingredients for adobo in blender or food processor and chop up real good n stuff

put tilapia on a greased pan so it doesn't stick...dur
spread a heaping helping of adobo over the tilapia. the more the better
put the tilapia in the oven until done. 8-10 minutes or until you can eat it without getting sick

make the butter

chop up the cilantro however chunky you like it
finely chop the shallot and garlic clove...unless you like big ass pieces of garlic...I dont
add to the softened butter
add the lime juice

put the veggies on a plate and add a dollop of the butter to melt over the veggies

once the fish is done place it on top of the veggies and let some stick out the sides to make it pretty and shit.
