This recipe was great! I used honey in place of the brown sugar, and a touch of chili powder in place of the cumin and was very pleased with the resulting sweet/spicy flavor.
I did not like this at all. My family would not eat it. it was to sweet (all you tasted was brown sugar) at first and then it was to hot and not the yummy kind of hot. Maybe I did something wronge, but i don't think im going to attempt at it again.
My hubby absolutely loved it. He has asked that I use this recipe from now on when I make Tilapia. I have to confess it's a little sweet for me, but just a personal preference. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
This is such a 10 star recipe - it will be my only go to tilapia from now on! It is just the perfect balance of sweet and spice and so quick and easy. Thanks!
Holy Moly! This was excellent! I was looking for some recipes that were quick enough to do after work, yet still a "real meal". I made this last night, and my family loved it. The combination of sweet and spicy was perfect with the subtlety of Tilapia. Due to the fact that I never react well to Garlic Powder, I substituted fresh, pressed Garlic. I was so inspired by the rub that I put a little brown sugar and Kosher salt on the fresh Green Beans I had simmered. Mmmmmm. A meal with the Tilapia, the simmered Green Beans, and some white rice with butter, salt and pepper took me less than half an hour including prep time. My family gave me 5 stars for making this. :D Thank you.
I've made this many times and love it every time. I'm making this tonight for my parents who absolutely love this meal and begged me to make it for them again. Thanks so much, Chef Rabideaux!!!
For some reason I didn't like the way this tasted. I think it was way too sweet for me. Sorry.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! It's so delicious....the brown sugar melts and it gets caramely, sweet, yet spicy...in perfect balance. My kids even thought that there was cinnamon in it. I made it exactly as written, except I lightly brushed my tilapia with melted butter before coating with the brown sugar mixture. So nice and moist! Thanx for this unique recipe. I'll be making this often!
Holy crap! This is the best talapia I have ever made! Brown sugar and cayenne compliment one another very well. Any other Tilapia recipes you have would be well taken and appreciated. (PS..for you adventurous types, try a spo of balsamic vinegar in with the mix..really adds a depth to the flavor!)
