Tilapia is by far my favorite fish. It is light and flaky and doesn’t have that “fishy” taste that others might have. Plus, I love how fast I can cook it. I can make baked tilapia in under 20 minutes. It is really a very quick dinner idea. This recipe just goes to show that you can make a dinner when you are in a hurry.
Now I normally buy my Tilapia at Sam’s because it I love how they are individually frozen. I can thaw them in water in about 5 minutes. So from freezer to plate is about 25 minutes. You really don’t have excuses not to eat healthy now. 🙂 Plus I find it more reasonably priced at Sam’s. If you have any extra tips to help me save on Tilapia, I would love to know.

Ok, back to the baked tilapia recipe…
Bake in a preheated oven (425 degrees) for about 15 minutes – until the Tilapia turns white and isn’t translucent anymore. Don’t be scared by the brown spots. That is just from the juices.
Seriously though…. isn’t that just delicious looking?
Oh and I can tell you… it was oh so good. My kids always freak out when I say we are having fish. I don’t know why but it scares them. However, every time we have it they are reminded how much they like it. In fact, I didn’t make enough last time. 😉
Baked Tilapia is probably one of the easiest ways to make tilapia.
