Deliciously seasoned tilapia (white fish) dish. I threw this together, and the whole family including the kids devoured it and wanted more! Fast and easy dish.

Easy, fast, so tasty. Will definitely use this recipe again for a quick meal. I always have frozen tilapia handy and a vegetable multi-grain medley to serve along side with a serving of cole slaw (shredded cabbage, carrots, green onions tossed with bottled vidalia onion dressing). The whole meal is on the table within 45 minutes. As for the tilapia, I soaked it for a few minutes in a dish of low fat milk, as I do with all frozen fish after defrosting, before coating with the spices.
