Fantastic recipe, great flavor. Our first time trying Tilapia and we loved it, will try more recipes with this fish.

Chia, this was delicious even without the Green Peppercorns as they were no where to be found here. Will try Costplus the next time I am close to one. I used Capers in place of the peppercorns and made it just like the recipe said. It was delicious. We love Tilapia and fix it often.
