Lemon-Lime Tilapia

It has really surprised me how much my boys love tilapia.  They each easily eat two whole fillets at a meal and so I have tried to come up with various ways of seasoning and preparing this mild white fish.  My eldest son tasted this recipe and said, "Mmmmmmmmm, lemony."  It's a keeper and it's also faster than baking up frozen chicken nuggets!

4 tilapia fillets (I buy the individually frozen and thaw them in warm water in the sink for 5 minutes while I gather the rest of the ingredients)
1 lemon
1 lime
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. butter, softened

In a medium bowl, squeeze juice of half a lemon and half a lime.   Add thawed fish fillets and turn to coat.  Allow to marinate while preheating broiler on high.  Be sure to move oven rack to second from top level near the broiler.
Rub a little butter on the rimmed sheet pan.  Mix remaining butter with garlic.  Place tilapia on pan and evenly divide garlic butter by dotting top of each fillet.
Broil 7-8 minutes.
Remove from oven and squeeze remaining halves of lemon and lime over the fish before serving.
