I've decided to cook healthier for my family, and that includes having more fish at home. After looking at tilapia recipes I decided to try baking tilapia. I love that it's fast, too! —Hope Stewart, Raleigh, North Carolina

"I have made this many times. I have added extra seasoning because the amounts listed weren’t enough for me. Also, I have subbed the lemon juice for dry white wine a couple of times because I had no lemons. Very good either way."

"This is a fantastic recipe!!!!! Everything about it works wonderfully and the taste is FANTASTIC. I do not enjoy fish much at all and I especially usually don't enjoy the taste of tilapia. I've tried several recipes and they're 'OK,' but this one made the fish taste terrific. I grabbed this recipe about an hour before I was to cook and was out of capers, so I searched for a substitution. My google search result recommened subbing with something tangy that has a bit of a bite to it, there were several options. I chose to substitute capers with a spicy baby dill pickle, all it took was one and it worked great! If you use a spicy baby dill, also, be sure to mince it up, really fine, because it spreads the flavor out evenly over the fish, when it's cut up tiny. The only other substitution I made was using 1 tsp fresh minced garlic (= 2 cloves), because I think it tastes better than garlic powder, just my taste preference. Everyone loved this recipe and I definitely will be using it whenever we eat tilapia, in the future! Well done, TOH!"

"Wow, Hope! These are the kind of recipes I'm always looking for! It's easy, but doesn't skimp on flavor. When my spouse was released from the hospital and needs to be on a "bland diet", this was great! But there is nothing bland about it! It's just plain delicious!"

"If you are trying to eat healthier, don't use tilapia! Try another mild white fish. I used salt water trout filets. Was very good."
