impressive. simple, healthy and delicious. tilapia is such a mild, sweet fish that this simple recipe really does it great justice. rosemary is a nice touch. my 3 yr old daughter and i loved it. made this as stated but used olive oil rather than cooking spray. used sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. delicious and will make again.
