    Serves: 4 

    • 4 tilapia fillets

    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
    2. Brush the tilapia fillets with oil on both sides, season with Creole seasoning to taste, then place into a 23x33cm or similar sized baking dish.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until the flesh is no longer translucent and the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until the garlic has softened and the aroma has mellowed, about 2 minutes.
    5. Stir in the cheese sauce and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and keep warm until the fish is ready. Pour the sauce over the fish to serve. Sprinkle with additional Creole seasoning if desired.
