Tilapia With Garlic Lime Butter

17 mins (prep 2, cooking 15)
5 ingredients
4-6 servings
This recipe was somewhat of an accident for me. My mom had prepared some homemade garlic butter for some reason and I mistakenly used it instead of regular butter to saute some Tilapia filets. I usually put lemon on my fish, but we were out, so I used lime juice instead. Everyone really liked it, so I make it all the time now. Even my very picky husband requests it! It's easy to adjust this recipe to feed more or less people.
