Add oil to a nonstick cooking pan. Place over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until soft. Stir in paprika. Remove from heat and let cool. Spread onion mixture on both sides of fillets. Sprinkle with dill. Lightly coat a broiler pan using a paper towel moistened with olive oil. Broil fillets and garlic cloves on high 3 inches from heat for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Sprinkle with lemon juice and garnish with broiled garlic cloves.

I would guess that these recipes come from 'internet healthy diet gurus'who don't understand some basic things about fat and heat and oxidation and heart disease.

You might want to rethink that tilapia!! They feed it corn, so alas, it should not be on the "healthy fish" list!
