My family loves fish, and this super-fast and delicious dish is very popular at my house. Though it tastes like it takes a long time, it cooks in minutes under the broiler. We like it garnished with lemon wedges with couscous on the side.

"My mom bought me a Taste of Home cookbook with this recipe in it. My boyfriend and I tend to eat a lot of chicken, but we love tilapia. We saw this recipe and were so excited to try it. Loved it! Great flavor and easy to make!"
