One of my favorite herbs is Cilantro, I can’t get enough of it. I’ll even eat it by itself…one thing is certain you either love cilantro or you hate cilantro. Well I’m in the I love cilantro category! I’m so happy I came up with the recipe Tilapia with Cilantro Butter recipe.
Tilapia is only available as “farm raised”…which I typically stay away from. Farm raised fish are not raised in healthy conditions. The farms water aren’t changes, too many fish in a smaller area which make for a very unhealthy conditions. But, I will buy tilapia from Whole Foods due to their strict requirements. Even though they are farmed raised the conditions are much healthier and it is fresh not frozen.
It’s so easy but does not lack in flavor. Do yourself a favor and make this!
salt and pepper
butter (Dairy free use a vegan butter)
Salt and pepper the tilapia and saute in olive oil (don’t overcook) until done! In the mean time take 1 tbsp butter and mix with finely chopped cilantro. Once tilapia is done, plate, and place a pat of cilantro butter on top.
