When you think about the biggest hurdles that you face each night to get dinner on the table for your family, what comes to mind? Are you short on time or just too tired to cook? Feeling uninspired and bored with the same few meals?  Or maybe you’re trying to cater to multiple picky eaters who can’t agree on a single dish? Well today’s 5-Ingredient Garlic Parmesan Tilapia is about to bust through any of these roadblocks — making your weeknight dinners a bit less chaotic, a bit healthier, and a whole lot tastier!

No matter what reasons you have for dreading the dinnertime hustle, I’m telling you: I can relate. At different points in time, and depending on the day, I have certainly confronted each of these obstacles…and more. It’s called life. It’s called parenting. And it doesn’t have to be quite so tough.

With just a few simple tricks up your sleeve, you can transform family meals from a stressful guilt-inducing race through the drive-thru into a calmer, more enjoyable experience that brings everyone together at the end of a busy day. Will each dinner be perfect? Heck no! We still have our fair share of food-snubbing, milk-spilling, and tantrum-throwing during supper (especially when the 3-year-old has missed one too many naps); but I can honestly say that meals like this Garlic Parmesan Tilapia make the end of the day far easier than it used to be.

5-Ingredient Garlic Parmesan Tilapia


  • 4 tilapia fillets (about 8 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Minced fresh parsley, for serving
  • 2 cups Libby’s® Vegetable Pouches, for serving (1/2-cup serving per person)


  1. Preheat oven to BROIL.
  2. Place tilapia on a large, rimmed baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Combine melted butter, lemon juice, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush the butter mixture on both sides of the fish.
  4. Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet, bottom side UP, and broil for 5 minutes. Flip the fish over, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and return to the broiler for 5-6 more minutes. The fish will flake easily with a fork when it’s done.
  5. Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.
