Melt butter in a small dish and coat both sides of tilapia. Add lemon juice and coat with salt, pepper and brown sugar. Grill for approximately 5 minutes, giving it a 1/4 turn halfway through if desired. Tilapia will flake easily with a fork when done.

Excellent when served with fresh steamed cauliflower.
