Sauce was thin and barely enough for four pieces. It was ok. I didn’t taste too much lime which is probably a good thing
This is SO good and so easy! I did some seasoning tweaking - I used breadcrumbs instead of flour, added chile powder and granulated garlic, used Adobo instead of salt to pump up the flavor. I also cut the amount of lime in half and it was plenty for four tilapia filets. I jused a pan that I had sauteed white onion in so already started to build flavor. I noticed others were having trouble getting the sauce to thicken, I didn't, I have learned to simmer on a medium-low heat so that the liquid evaporates; I added a little butter, more cilantro, more chicken broth and it was delicious, almost the consistency of a chimchurri or pesto. Gives the fish a burst of citrus flavor that compliments the cumin-saltiness. Served with marinated petite orange and yellow tomatoes and olive assortment, my own herbed brown rice of sunflower seeds and italian parsley, a melon-feta-arrugula salad. YUMMY!
This was pretty good and fairly easy. I cut the entire recipe in half for (2) 4oz tilapia filets. I used chicken stock, not broth and I also skipped the lime peel. I think without the lime peel the lime flavor wasn't overpowering. I used dried cilantro instead of fresh. I needed to cook it longer than it called for as well. I found it to have a good flavor and overall it was pretty yummy, but there were just other flavors out there I like better.
Very good. Sauce was tasty but I'd probably make a bit more.
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.
