Sheet Pan Fish with Tomatoes and Asparagus

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, or more, to taste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

In a small bowl, whisk together butter, garlic, lemon juice and Italian seasoning; reserve 2 tablespoons and set aside.

Place asparagus in a single layer onto one side of the prepared baking sheet. Stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place tomatoes in a single layer in the middle of the prepared baking sheet. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place tilapia in a single layer onto the opposite side of the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with butter mixture.

Place into oven and bake until fish flakes easily with a fork and the tomatoes begin to burst and have softened, about 11-13 minutes.

Serve with reserved butter mixture, garnished with parsley, if desired.
