The reviews were so good I had to try this recipe. Finallly - a great recipe for bland fish ! It was delicious and restaurant quality! I did read all reviews and did not add any salt and it was perfect. So easy. My husband couldn't believe I made it last minute one night. Nice to have an extremely simple dish to put together last minute. The only thing I will try next time is make some sauce with the butter, spices, and maybe a little wine.

I thought this was indeed a restaurant-quality recipe! I did add a dash of cayenne for a bit of heat, and then cooked it in my air fryer (on a square of parchment paper). It was fantastic, and an easy dish to adjust for just one or two, or a crowd.

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.
