Butter Poached Tilapia

Hey guys! I made this the other night for the girls after cheer practice. It only took 10 minutes to make, but the girls and I devoured it in less than 3 minutes! I didn’t even take a before picture, because everyone was starving and it seemed so cruel to make them wait. It was pretty. It was delicious. And this was all that was leftover in the pan.
