What Makes This Pinworthy?

This tilapia recipe is one of the best seafood recipes to have been tried here at Pinworthy Kitchen. The tilapia cooks up perfectly during the prescribed time, and the tender fish pairs beautifully with the garlic butter sauce. The asparagus and tomatoes are wonderful accompaniments that round off this perfect meal.

One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare. Preparing fish- and all the skills doing so requires- can be intimidating, but Damn Delicious has made this recipe so easy to do that not only is it perfect as a quick weeknight meal but it is also sure to become the easiest dinner recipe in any cook’s retinue. The vegetables require minimal preparation and are tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper before being placed on the tray. The tilapia requires only slightly more preparation- after being placed on the tray, they are brushed with a combination of melted butter, garlic, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning. From there, it is just a matter of baking the dish- it is truly that easy!

Yet another wonderful ting about this dish is that it is a one-pan meal. Everything is placed on a parchment lined baking sheet, tossed with oil or butter, and then baked. For those who seek smaller kitchen messes, this recipe is sure to please.
