It is a very light in taste fish...You can really cook it using anything...

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan


1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets

Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

tilapia is a very popular fish here in malaysia dat every chinese restaurant serves. here r 2popular styles it's usually done.

deep fry whole tilapia coated with cornstarch till golden brown(only put in de fish when oil is smoking hot,then turn down to med fire) set aside. this can be done earlier.when u wanna serve, deep fry 2nd time med fire-this will ensure it's crispy-even de bones!! put on platter n stir fry lots of chopped garlic in bit of oil,add light soy sauce,sugar n 3tbs of water,bring to boil n pour over fish. serve immediately garnish with spring onions n coriander.

steamed tilapia- clean n slit fish at thickest parts, set fish on steamin or baking tray,stuff de stomach with ginger n spring onions, squeeze ginger juice onto fish esp slits. bring water to boil, put fish tray on a steaming rack n steam high heat for 15mins or till fish is cooked when eye pops out. while waiting, stir fry shallots,garlic n ginger, add water,oyster sauce,soysauce n sugar n bring to boil thickening with cornflour mixed with water. carefully discard fish water n pour gravy on fish,serve immediately-enjoy!!

This fish is delicious and easy to prepare. The recipe is from www.olivegarden.com. They have a lot of great recipes on their website.

Hi Crissy=D Tilapia is a great fish that is easy to use in lots of recipes cause of its firm texture and not so fishy taste. Make some fish taco's they are great made with Tilapia. Just make them the same way as regular tacos but chop the Tilapia fillets up into small peices first. Safeway also has this great Coconut encrusted Tilapia made by Seacuisine. You could do it yourself using a tempura batter and add cocnut shreds to itand almond flakes and then bake them or deep fry the fillets after you batter them. I bet blackened Tilapia would taste great btu I havnt tried it....yet. Hope these help you out.
