Green Olive Company

Baked Tilapia

A delicious and healthy fish recipe for Lent that the whole family will enjoy.

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes (varies by oven temperature and texture preference)


  • 4 tilapia filets (6 oz. each)
  • 3 tablespoons Green Olive Company Butter Infused Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoons Green Olive Company Lemon Fused Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Optional: Lemon slices, fresh parsley, and an olive oil mister. See Bonus Tips below.


  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Pat tilapia filets dry of excess moisture with a paper towel. Place them in a 13" x 9" baking dish, lined with parchment paper. Pre-fill an olive oil atomizer/mister with olive oils and spritz filets evenly, or brush olive oils lightly onto the fish with a basting brush. Sprinkle with Old Bay Seasoning.
  3. Place the uncovered baking dish into preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. (Temperatures may may vary 145°-165° depending on texture preference and oven.) Remove from the oven and let rest for 1-10 minutes. Finish with a dusting of smoked paprika to taste. Garnish with fresh sliced lemon and parsley if desired.

 An oil mister is recommended for saving time and oil. Drizzle the plated fish with Green Olive Company’s Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar for a Mediterranean flair or Black Mission Fig Dark Balsamic Vinegar for a California twist!
