I have always loved fish but growing up in New England, I was a bit spoiled and it took me a long time to come around to tilapia. Since I don't find it as flavorful as some other fish, I find that it's neccessary to really inject lots of flavor into the fish to make it something I am excited to eat. This simple garlic and lime version packs in the flavor with butter, garlic, lime juice, and Old Bay seasoning. It's great as a stand alone dish and is also delicious in tacos with some crunchy slaw and avocado.
