Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, and olive oil.
Season the tilapia fillets with salt and black pepper.
Place the fillets in a baking dish and pour the lemon-garlic mixture over them.
Ensure the fillets are well-coated with the marinade.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the tilapia flakes easily with a fork and is no longer translucent.
Optionally, you can remove the foil during the last few minutes of baking to allow the top to brown slightly.
Serve the Baked Lemon Garlic Tilapia hot, garnished with fresh parsley leaves. This dish pairs beautifully with steamed vegetables, rice, or a light salad.
