Oven Baked Tilapia with Butter Sauce


This recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place white fish (I used Tilapia this time) in a small casserole dish. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of fish. Place fresh thyme leaves throughout. Slice a couple rounds of compound butter, place on top of fish, and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until fish is flaky. Serve over raw carrot and parsley salad.

Hello swimsuit season! We are trying to keep it somewhat light around here; especially with the amount of baking we have been doing!

Stay tuned for some great posts this month including: a new segment of ATX Gluten-Free News, a Gluten-Free Ratio Rally recipe (I joined!), and giveaways from Free From Gluten, Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free and Elana’s Pantry.
