    Cousin Christie's Note:

    This tasty recipe for tilapia is quite easy to make. I got it off of and just slightly modified it. The recipe calls for the fish to marinade for 20 minutes, but I bet it would be even better if marinated for longer. Enjoy!

      We enjoyed this. I did let the fish marinade longer. I prepared it in the morning and the fish marinaded until supper. While we enjoyed it we will probably lessen the amount of or omit the cloves as that flavor seemed a little overpowering.

      This was pretty good! My husband and I both enjoyed it. Something different and very tasty. I forgot to reserve 1/2 the marinade, which would have been good spooned over the fish and the white rice I served with it. Will not forget next time!

      Pretty good! I do think it's a bit heavy on the garlic powder though and may use fresh garlic next time. I thought the amount of cloves was fine, though I noticed the directions leave out the cloves (I'm assuming they get put in with the other spices). I will probably make this again!
