Reviews for Lime-Cilantro Tilapia
"Not bad, but sauce was super thin and did not thicken as the recipe stated. Also, the lime flavor was very overpowering and I am a fan of lime. Not sure if I would make again."
"Love this recipe! You must like a strong lime flavor to enjoy this properly. The sauce didn't thicken, but it was perfect for the light fish. Between my boyfriend, our two boys(8,10) and I, we ate ten pieces of fish. I used 4oz tilapia pieces. I doubled the sauce, but it was unnecessary. This is a keeper!"
"We loved this...I served with some buttered noodles and Kale This is how I will cook my Tilapia from now on"
"Loved the flavor! I really couldn't get the sauce to thicken but was still great on the fish, which seemed to soak it up."
"My whole family loved it. It's an easy recipe that is nice and light - perfect for warm weather."
