Thai Tilapia Recipe

You can take a taste trip to Asia even on a hectic weeknight with this no-fuss fish dish developed by our Test Kitchen. The sauce adds a mellow, peanutty flavor and a bit of a kick.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups cooked rice
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 2 tilapia fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup fresh snow peas
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup Thai peanut sauce


  • 1. Prepare grill for indirect heat. Combine the rice, onions, red pepper and basil; place on a greased double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 15 in. square). Top with the tilapia, snow peas and peanut sauce. Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 2 servings.

"This recipe was not at all good. The fish was mushy and did not have a good flavor. I really like thai and I like to cook in foil on my grill, but would never do this recipe again."

"This is a great and delicious recipe. I used Uncle Ben's 90 seconds-Wild Rice (microwave) then followed the recipe. I baked it in a counter top oven at 475, but it did take about 35-40 minutes to bake. Mmmmmm Good!!!!"

"This sounds like a great recipe to try. Can't find Thai peanut sauce is my small store so could some one tell me if there is a recipe to make my own. Thank you very much"

"My husband said "Thanks for dinner. That was very good!"

I fixed this on the stove, stir-frying the veggies and then pouring in the sauce to heat through. I fried this fish in canola oil in another skillet and fixed the rice according to package directions. I served it as a bed of rice with the fish on top and the veggie sauce poured over it. Very simple and quick!"

"I live in a condo and cannot have a grill. Can this be cooked in a toaster oven?"
