I had two pounds of gorgeous tilapia fillets and one big can of crushed pineapple. I used chopped red onion - lots of it - and regular soy sauce - plus some minced garlic. Put it all in a big Corning dish, covered it as instructed, and was sure the microwave would screw it up. (I've never done fish in the microwave before, but I didn't want these fillets to go bad and did NOT want to freeze them.) Imagine my surprise when they came out - 12 minutes later, with one rotation halfway through - as if they'd been steamed ever so carefully. It was amazing, everyone loved them, four of us put away the whole 2 pounds, and my only regret is that there are no leftovers for fish tacos! Next time, I might try other fruit, and lots more onions, maybe in rings, because they almost became a lovely crunchy vegetable, but this is a wonderful, easy, brilliant recipe!
I made this for my family with the crushed pineapple, soy sauce and just a bit of viadila onion. My kids (9, 5 and 3) LOVED the fish. It was flaky and tender and cooked perfectly this way. Hubby liked it ok, but sweeter foods are nt his favorite, but even he agreed it was one to make again. The kids ate every bite they were served and enthusiastically said they would want me to make it again. Now I have another great recipe for a quick evening dinner. Unbelievable how quickly dinner came together tonight!
I loved this recipe because it was so easy and quick to prepare. But the taste was a little "fishy" to me, and I eat fish at least twice a week. Next time I will add some spices and see if that helps. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe for tilapia.
This is a wonderful way to cook tilapia! I used Vidalia onion, as they are in season here, and low sodium soy sauce. Thank you, Laurie, can't wait to try this on the fish we catch at the beach this summer!
for a very simple recipe this was one of the best fish recipies I have tried
This is a delicious dish! My boyfriend and I love tilapia and this was a nice change from the way we usually have it. This will definitely become a regular for me. I did add about 1 extra tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the pineapple juice and more green onions. Delicious!
