Excellent! I couldn't believe how quickly we were eating lunch. I used fillets straight from the freezer and couldn't be happier with the ease of preparation and the overall flavor. My toddler and I both enjoyed this. I liked the combination of tarragon and cider vinegar, but no one flavor overpowered another and everything was a nice compliment to the fish. Thanks for sharing, Messiejessie! Served with your Baby Carrots with Dill Butter (recipe #340656). Made and enjoyed for Spring 2011 Pick A Chef.

  1. In a microwavable baking dish, arrange tilapia fillets in a single layer. Dot with pieces of butter, and minced garlic. Sprinkle over fresh tarragon. Cover with waxed paper and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  2. Turn fillets over, recover, and continue to microwave on high for a further 2 minutes. Remove immediately, sprinkle with apple cider vinegar, and serve.
