While some people might find whitefish bland or boring, I actually find that it’s an incredible base for many delicious flavors! My Nightshade-Free Curry-Baked Tilapia, Coconut Oil-Poached Whitefish with Asian Pear Slaw and Pan-Seared Tarragon Whitefish Filet are excellent examples of the diversity of influences you can use to jazz up your tilapia, cod, halibut or other whitefish!
In this recipe, I wanted to explore some Mexican-inspired flavors. The tequila lends a wonderful flavor to this dish! I used tilapia because it’s cheap, but you could really use any whitefish here.

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a small saucepan on low heat, melt butter. Add garlic and stir occasionally until garlic is cooked, about 5 minutes.
3. Add tequila, thyme, and lime zest. Cook until alcohol has burned off, about 2 minutes. Add parsley and remove from heat.
4. Lightly coat one side of tilapia and place herb side down on a baking sheet lined with foil. Use remaining herb butter to more heavily coat the top side. Dust with paprika.
5. Bake approximately 15 minutes, until fish is opaque throughout and segments flake apart easily. Enjoy!
