In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the halibut and lemon. Mix well.
Place the tilapia fillets in a baking dish and season them on both sides with Kosher salt and black pepper. For some color, add paprika.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, parsley, red crushed pepper, grated garlic, and lemon juice. If using unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt and mix well.
