Number of Servings: 4


    12 oz Tilapia
    2 TBS Smart Balance Light Margarine
    1 TBS minced garlic
    1.5 tsp Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic Seasoning
    1 tsp dried parsley
    2 TBS lemon juice
    salt and pepper to taste


Rinse tilapia fillets and place in a shallow dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, evenly sprinkle lemon juice over top. Add garlic garlic and parsley seasonings.

In a small saucepan on the stove, melt the margarine and and add the minced garlic. Allow to simmer about 30-60 seconds and then pour over fillets. Cover and place in the refrigerator 20-30 minutes to allow the marinade to flavor the fish.

Grill for about 5 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily. Use marinade to baste fish during grilling. (Works really well on a small indoor grill, be careful when flipping as the fish is generally very thin and can fall apart easily!)

Makes 4 3-oz fillets.

    Very Good
    I have made this several times. Tonight I used croppie instead of Tilapia. It was very good. This is a quick and simple way to prepare fish. Thanks for sharing - 2/15/13
