  • About This Recipe

    “I adopted this recipe in the recipe adoption of February 2005.The only major change I made to this recipe is to change the cooking method from microwave to oven.I prefer to cook fish in the oven, and it only takes a couple of minutes longer.I also added measurements to the spices.DH doesn’t like curry powder, so I made the curry powder optional.This recipe is easy to double for 2 servings.”

  • “Wow!Had some frozen sword fish steaks and a husband glued to the Angels Yankees playoff game.Regardless of the outcome in Major League land, this baby was a home run! Fast and easy.The combo of seasonings hit it over the fence.With this I served pan grilled zucchini slices, leftover baby red potatoes and broiled vine ripened tomatoes.RecipeZaar you are the best!”

  • “What a great and easy recipe!I will use this one in the future.I like the curry taste.”

  • “Exactly what I was looking for–fast, easy & yummy.I used cod fillets & omitted the Mrs. Dash seasoning & the butter.12 minutes at 350 was perfect.Thank you!”

  • “really good fish! my boyfriend really doesnt like fish so i wasnt to sure about making it but it tured out so good. he ate it all up. i like that it has a little kick to it. thanks so much!”

  • “Seriously great fish.It’s so easy, and the seasoning is right on!I forgot to melt the butter and just dotted each fillet with butter.Turned out fabulous!We will have this dish frequently.Thnx for posting, Ginny Sue.”

  • “Delicious, easy, healthy, inexpensive, and the time cooking was right on.I made this with oven rice that also bakes at 400 degrees, so I put together the rice first and then made the fish. Thanks for sharing Ginny Sue.Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup game.”

  • “UNBELIEVABLE!!This was the best fish I’ve eaten in a along time. I followed the recipe to the T, the only adjustment was sliced tomatoes sprinkled with basil and a little leftover butter. It was really moist, very flavourful without it being overpowering. fantastic recipe!! I can’t wait to invite my father-in-law to dinner, who just happens top be a chef.”

  • “My husband loved it!Thanks!”

  • “Yummy :)I made it with frozen cod – cooked it for a bit more than a half hour since it was frozen, and added a tomato to it as well.Served with rice, this is so easy – that’s the key.Thanks :)”

  • “This made a wonderful supper tonight!I didn’t use anything as exotic (or “IN”) as tilapia; just simple Whiting fillets.I did take serveral liberties with the recipe.Used bottled lemon juice (all I had on hand).Instead of Cayenne Pepper, I used Old Bay.Used granulated garlic rather than a clove.All seasoning was done by sight rather than using measuring spoons.10 min. at 400 degrees & the fish was perfect!Very moist & flavorful.This recipe will be a standard in my kitchen.Thanks, Ginny Sue!!”

  • “Wonderful! I used bottled lemon juice, mainly because I couldn’t find any fresh lemons. My husband had used them for his punch.I left out the curry and didn’t really want to use cayenne pepper so I just used black pepper and instead of Mrs. Dash, I used lemon and lime pepper. My daughter who doesn’t really like fish, rated this as a 5 star.I’ve never had or cooked Tilapia before and this was a treat. It will be a regular in our house now. Thank you.”
