We have a love hate relationship with Tilapia. The fish is a nice white fish, and reasonably priced. But sometimes the meat is just soso for taste! and it is so thin that some pieces (after cooked) just fade away!!
Tilapia is low in fat, and fish is so good for you, AND it is on our South Beach/Atkins Menu!
I finally found a recipe for good Tilapia. You can make a ton, or just a little, your call!
Another plus, it is easy-peasy.
Garlic Lime Tilapia
• 3 Tbs. butter
• 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
• 6 Tilapia fillets
• Old Bay Seasoning
• 1/4 cup lime juice
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook for a minute or two.
Season the fish with Old Bay Seasoning on both sides of each fillet. Add to the skillet. Cook for several minutes. Flip and cook the other side for a couple minutes. Pour the lime juice into the skillet. Cover and cook the last few minutes until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
