Top-Rated Tilapia Recipes
Sensational recipes for this versatile, budget-friendly fish.
Tilapia has a lot going for it. It's cheap, and it's everywhere—both compelling reasons to give it a try. Flavor-wise, tilapia is admittedly the mildest of the mild flaky white fish, but that can be turned into a virtue: It's a great starter fish for kids or anyone wary of seafood that is too "fishy". This makes tilapia a versatile base for a multitude of flavor approaches, as you'll see in our Top-Rated Tilapia Recipes.
In this recipe, ginger, curry paste, and coconut milk combine in a spicy sauce for a dish that has converted more than a few people to love this fish.
"I'm not a big fish eater, so I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to serve it. This one is a winner!" wrote reviewer Kelly. "Once you get the chopping done, it is a snap to prepare. Will definitely make again!"
"This recipe was amazingly simple and delicious!" said LISA B from Pennsylvania. "I used 2 of the individually frozen tilapia filets and cut the sauce in half. YUMMY! Unfortunately I didn't think ahead and make rice or the noodles. They are a must to soak up the delicious sauce!"
"I made this with orange roughy―it was amazing!!!" said Larissa. "The fish in and of itself is terrific without the relish. The relish, however, is equally delicious! This is a summer keeper!"
"This is a great quick recipe. The relish was excellent and held up well in the fridge after a few days," said one anonymous reviewer. "It was a nice balance of sweet and spice. It will become part of our rotation!"
"These were so good, I think my husband ate one of his in two bites. We love them! The panko crumbs make the fish really crunchy, which is essential in a fish taco, in our opinion." – kbse67
