We love tilapia at our home. My husband is fromn the south so he love grits with fried tilapia. I must admit, I don't like grits, but I enjoy that meal. The great thing about this fish is that you can prepare so many different ways and it doesnt dry out easily...its great for griiling in foil.

I buy parmesean crusted tilapia from Gordon's Food Service (GFS) and cook it in the Flavor-Wave. I top it will a little shredded cheese and some salsa. I think it's very good although I don't like many kinds of fish.

lol... I had just read the question and was going to recommend Spark's recipes broiled parmesan tilapia. I LOVE IT! Quick and easy to make and so cheesy. I actually substituted parmesan for light feta and it turned out amazing. I use about 1/4 of the garlic recommended in the recipe though, too garlicy for me.
I like to bake it in foil pockets with s&p, cilantro, green onion, and quartered cherry tomatoes... tastes good to me...

Love it!! I buy frozen fillets and broil it with a little bit of olive oil and some lemon herb seasoning (and salt/pepper). It is wonderful!

love it... I just spray my pan with a nonstick spray and add the tilapia with some spices of choice depending on mood and add a bunch of veggies, like baby carrots, shredded cabbage, mushrooms, and maybe some fresh spinach cover and cook for like five minutes and its done. fish is flaky and veggies a bit crisp...
A note on Tilapia - if you are choosing your tilapia make sure to get wild tilapia or US Farm Raised if you can. Asian Farm raised tilapia tends to be fed a "fish meal" that is basically ground up bycatch that is very high in heavy metals and all the other nasty stuff that you don't want to be eating.
when you cook your fish (I prefer grilling it) try eatting it with pineapple (or mango) salsa! It's easy to make, and the longer you let the salsa sit before you eat it, the better (i'd say like a day). Just chop up pineapple (or mango), diced jalapenos, chop red onion, a little bit of lime juice, some cilantro, and salt n pepper to taste. It's super amazing AND your getting your fruit too ;) I'd only recommend this for white fish though.
Not really, I also think it's a bit bland. I prefer salmon.

I make a meal out of it with cabbage & veggies - the tilapia is still a bit bland, but eating it with cabbage, I don't mind. It's a 1 pan meal:
- Sautee some onion & garlic in a pan, - to the same pan, add shredded cabbage, cut up carrots, a few other veggies, and put the lid on for 10 minutes or so until veggies are soft to your liking. - put a piece of tilapia on top of the cabbage and put the lid back on.
The tilapia us usually done in 2 or 3 minutes, depending on the thickness. I just squeeze a little lemon, salt & pepper on the fish, and have it with a big side of veggies.
