ISO Tilapia recipe <easy>

I am looking for a good easy way to cook tilapia. Kroger had some on sale and I keep hearing people talk about it so I wanted to try it.

How do you Tilapia eaters prepare it?

Hi Fran ~

My husband and I love tilapia. (My teen boys don't like fish.) One of my favorite ways to prepare it couldn't be simpler. Dip the fillets in egg (beaten lightly with a fork), then coat with a mixture of flour, salt, & pepper. You could even put some Parmesan cheese in the flour mixture. Or try cornmeal and Parmesan cheese. Saute in a pan using olive oil.

If I can find any more specific tilapia recipes, I'll be sure to post them.

Here are some:


Tilapia Lemon Parmesan
2-1/2 lbs. Tilapia fillets
2-4 tsp. butter or margarine, softened
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Lemon-Parmesan Sauce

1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbl. fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Garnish

2 lemons, sliced fresh parsley
Rinse the tilapia fillets in cold water and drain thoroughly.
Top with butter or margarine and lemon juice.
Broil about 4 inches from the source of heat for approximately 5 to 6 minutes or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Top each portion with 1-2 tbl. of Lemon-Parmesan Sauce; broil 2-3 minutes or until sauce puffs and turns golden brown.
Place fillets on serving plate; garnish with lemon slices and fresh parsley.
Serves: 6

Baked Tilapia with Tomatoes & Olives
6 Tilapia fillets
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
3 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup coarsely chopped green olives
1/4 tsp. dried hot red pepper flakes
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 T. fresh lime juice
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly oil a shallow baking dish large enough to hold the fillets in one layer.
In a bowl stir together the oil, the thyme, the tomatoes, the olives, the red pepper flakes, the garlic, the onion, and the lime juice.
In the prepared baking dish arrange the fillets, skin sides down, season them with salt, and spoon the tomato mixture over them.
Bake the fish, uncovered, in the middle of the oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until it just flakes.
Serves: 6

Recipe from Rebecca Radnor and the American Tilapia Association


TILAPIA Texas Style

One fresh, cleaned, thin, Tilapia fillet per person
Dredge the fillet in a beaten egg, and coat with bread crumbs (both sides)
Season to taste. I like a little fresh ground pepper, maybe a bit of lemon. Flavored bread crumbs ie. Italian seasoning or garlic are fine. Choose what you like.
Lay the fillet flat, and place sliced or shredded Jarlsberg cheese over the top
Roll the fillet (like a swiss roll) with the cheese inside, and secure with a toothpick
Bake at 375 F for approximately 25 minutes

Tilapia In Beer Batter

4-6 Tilapia fillets
Juice of ½ lemon
2 Tbls. chopped parsley
2 Tbls. cooking oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
Oil for deep frying

BEER BATTER
2 large egg yolks
½ cup beer
½ cup flour
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp baking powder

Cut fillets into 2" pieces. Put in a bowl with lemon juice, parsley, 2 Tbls. cooking oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil for deep frying. Dip pieces of fish individually into batter, and then into hot oil. Cook, turning and submerging pieces in the oil until golden brown all over. Drain on paper towels. Makes 4 servings

Baked Tilapia with White Wine & Herbs
2 fresh Tilapia fillets, approximately 8-10oz each
150ml (1/4pint) medium white wine
1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 tablespoons freshly chopped mixed herbs
6 salad onions, diagonally sliced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2oz butter
1 teaspoon cornflour, blended with a little cold water
2 tablespoons creme fraiche
Arrange the Tilapia side by side in a lightly oiled roasting tin or ovenproof dish.
Pour over the wine, then sprinkle over the chopped garlic, most of the herbs, the salad onions and seasoning to taste. Place half the butter on each fish.
Cover with a sheet of lightly oiled foil, seal in the fish then bake in a preheated oven 350F, for 30-35 minutes.
Transfer the Tilapia to a serving dish and keep warm. Pour the juices into a pan, stir in the blended cornflour and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the creme fraiche, pour over and serve immediately, sprinkled with the remaining herbs.
Cooking Time: Approximately 35 minutes Serves: 2
