Baked Lemon Butter Tilapia

Ingredients

4 tilapia fillet (about 4 oz each), thawed
2 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon old bay
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon pepper
1 lemon
 
Preheat oven to 425 F.  Pat the fish dry with paper towel and place on baking sheet lined with foil. Mix together butter and seasonings.  Spread carefully over fish.  Squeeze half of lemon onto fish (about 1 tablespoon juice).  Slice remaining lemon half and place a slice on top of each fillet.  Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness, until fish reaches 145 degrees F and flakes easily with a fork.
 
If you are not a fan of Old Bay, either reduce or eliminate it.
