Thai Tilapia

You can take a taste trip to Asia even on a hectic weeknight with this no-fuss fish dish developed by our Test Kitchen. The sauce adds a mellow, peanutty flavor and a bit of a kick.

    This recipe was not at all good. The fish was mushy and did not have a good flavor. I really like thai and I like to cook in foil on my grill, but would never do this recipe again.

    This is a great and delicious recipe. I used Uncle Ben's 90 seconds-Wild Rice (microwave) then followed the recipe. I baked it in a counter top oven at 475, but it did take about 35-40 minutes to bake. Mmmmmm Good!!!!

    This sounds like a great recipe to try. Can't find Thai peanut sauce is my small store so could some one tell me if there is a recipe to make my own. Thank you very much

    My husband said "Thanks for dinner. That was very good!"I fixed this on the stove, stir-frying the veggies and then pouring in the sauce to heat through. I fried this fish in canola oil in another skillet and fixed the rice according to package directions. I served it as a bed of rice with the fish on top and the veggie sauce poured over it. Very simple and quick!
