    Based on recipe from Hubby LOVES it! Great with steamed broccoli and red potatoes. Quick and easy! Pretty spicy though.

      This is an unbeatable recipe. I didn't change a thing and the flavors were umami-perfect! I served this alongside Foodie Friend's "Smashed Cauliflower-Potatoes" for ALL YOU CAN COOK BUFFET 2011. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks, BetterLate!

      Made this last night for our dinner along with coleslaw and orzo/rice pilaf...wonderful! I didn't add the full amount of the cayenne but I probably could have. Made as written and definately will make again. This is an easy and simple recipe with things I always have available. Made for Seafood Tag 2011.

      This recipe rates much higher than the 5 stars allowed! It is the best tilapia recipe I've ever tried. The flavor is perfect as written and it was so easy to prepare. It's definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2011.
