I’m always looking for something to do with tilapia other than *yawn* lemon and garlic and this one had ingredients I readily had on hand. What an easy, flavorful, yummy recipe! I used Omaha Steaks special seasoning because I couldn’t find my Montreal seasoning and it was yummy. Also I didn’t have paprika so I used a little chili powder instead and both substitutions seem to work well. Definitely a keeper recipe!

Great recipe. I used it for Walleye. Baked covered for 10 min and then uncovered for 5 min. Fish nice and juicy and great seasonings. Sandy

This was really tasty. I doubled the recipe and cooked it on the grill. My husband who is not a fish lover went back for 3rds! I will go a little lighter on the salt next time.

This recipe was terrible. It ruined our tilapia. My wife and I had to scrape the seasoning off and it still ruined our tilapia. Seasoning overload. TERRIBLE. I give it a -10

Tilapia is such a mild sweet fish, delicious with only a butter topping, but this certainly jazzed it up a notch or two. I will make this again and I have recommended it to the other cooks in my family.

My family usually doesn't do baked fish, but because we are trying to eat healthier I looked up a recipe and this is amazing. Of course I twerked the recipe a little bit the main concept is beautiful. Will be making it regularly. Thank you.

I don't rate recipes often, because I don't follow recipes, usually. But this one's a keeper. Neither my husband nor my son loves fish unless it's fried, but both of them RAVE when I make this baked dish. Lose the salt, that's my only recommendation. Otherwise, spot-on. Great with wild rice, or pilaf, or noodles, baked potatoes, or any starch and/or veg of your choice. The flavor on the fish is assertive. Not overbearing. Really good -- Thank you!
