I cook tilapia often- its light and not too fishy as well as easy and fast to bake. Here are my two favorite recipes.
Herb baked tilapia:
2 tilapia fillets
In a baking dish I place the herbs on the bottom- cilantro, chopped chives and dill. I don't chop the dill or cilantro.
I place the fish fillets on top.
I squeeze lemon on top.
I shake pepper, cayenne and salt on top to taste.
Then I bake for 30 min at 350. If I have 4 fillets or really thick fillets I bake for about 35 min. You can always pull them out at 30 min and use a fork to see how it looks. Tilapia cooks fast so I wouldn't go longer than 40 min unless your fillet is very thick and you think its needs more time.
I use Arriba! Fire Roasted Hot Salsa.
Cook with above cooking directions.
