  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash garlic powder

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Place tilapia in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish; drizzle with butter. In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; sprinkle over fillets.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Tilapia, catfish, haddock and other lean types of fish may be frozen for up to 6 months. Oily fish, such as mackerel and grouper, shouldn’t be frozen for more than 3 months.
  • Unless otherwise specified, Taste of Home recipes are tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired.
