Tomato Thyme Tilapia in Butter Sauce

Good morning everyone! Last night I made a great new dish and it was so good, I wanted to share it with you today šŸ˜

This was super duper yummy! I wasn’t too sure with the amount of butter, but it was so worth it! 

Fresh tomatoes, fresh thyme from the garden and fresh tilapia make for an amazing flavourful dish! I served it over rice with a salad, but it would be just as delicious alone. 


Tomato Thyme Tilapia in Butter Sauce

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 a medium onion
  • 1 chopped clove of garlic 
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 large tomato 
  • Fresh thyme to taste
  • 4 fillets of tilapia

Add a tsp of butter to the pan and fry up the onions and garlic for a minute or so until onions are clear. 

Add remaining butter until melted, then add lemon juice and thyme. 

Salt and pepper fish as add to the butter sauce. Top with diced tomatoes. 

Let simmer on low, carefully flipped the fish after a couple of minutes. 

Serve with rice or alone or with a salad! 


I hope you get to try it! Let me know what you thought!

Bon appetite!
