    Ginivee's Note:

    I wanted to add more fish to my diet so one day I bought fresh Tilapia and looked online for an easy recipe to cook that evening because I never buy fresh fish and didn't know the first thing how to cook it. I found a recipe similar but I added my own special touch to it and pretty much changed the original. My husband and I loved it. Here's my version!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Instructions.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Stir-fry onion, garlic clove and pepper until crisp-tender, then add zucchini and continue to cook for a short time. Finally add mushrooms. Push veggies off to the side. Sprinkle one side of Tilapia with Cajun seasoning. Add to skillet. Cook about three minutes and turn.
    3. 3
      Cut lime in half and squeeze lime juice on tilapia from one half of the lime. Use the other half for serving if you like to squeeze it fresh on your fish. Sprinkle cayenne pepper according to taste. Then cover and continue to cook until fish is done, about another three minutes. Serve.
    4. 4
      Pan may dry after sautéing veggies, so I spray some olive oil spray before I place tilapia in pan to keep it from sticking. I also like to add a sprinkle of Marjoram on fish.
    5. 5
      I like to serve it with Steamed Jasmine Rice.

      The tilapia with Cajun seasoning and lime was very good. The veggies were an odd pairing. This was tasty, but it didn't sing.

      Pretty good. I ended up replacing the mushrooms with okra, which probably goes better with the spices and lime. I also added a bit of chili sauce to the vegetable mix, and served everything over brown rice. Quick & easy, thanks.

      We thought this was very good. I used red bell pepper instead, to add some color. We liked the vegetables and the fish a LOT, but thought that they were better seperate than together. The mushroom didn't really "go" with the lime and cajun, for us. Overall though, a tasty and healthy recipe! Thanks!
