"Mollyjoy -- this was incredible. I "found" some tfrozen tilapia in the freezer and Googled "tilapia + cilantro" and found your recipe. It was such a hit! Had to tell you how much we enjoyed it. THANKS!!"
"A nice way to bake tilapia for a change. The cilantro dried out a little once finished baking which didn't look too appetizing - next time I will add them midway through the baking time. Very light and healthy recipe."
"Was looking for a recipe to use some extra cilantro I had on hand. DH and I both enjoyed it. Thanks for posting!"
"I'm eating my FIRST EVER attempt at any kind of fish. I chose this recipe because I like fish, I had never cooked it, and this seemed nice and easy! And it was! So quick to prepare, it literally took me a minute or so of prep time. The blend of spices is wonderful. Seeing as how I don't live close enough to the ocean to get fresh tilapia, the slightly-fresh frozen filets turned out great. I wrapped mine in foil-like a boat- and coated both sides of the fish with olive oil, leaving some oil in the bottom of each foil "boat." I put on my desired amount of spices, and added a dash of lemon juice and put it in the oven for about ten minutes. It turned out fabulous. Thanks for helping to make my first attempt at cooking fish a successful one! I will definitely be using this recipe again!"
"OHH this was GREAT!! My daughter made me make it for her again immediately, b/c 2 pieces of fish was not enough, and then said she wanted it again for dinner tomorrow! We loved it!!!! Thanks"
"I really liked the spice. I only disliked how the garlic salt made the fish ridiculously salty. I would either reduce the amount of garlic salt or instead just use garlic powder. I will definitely make this again sometime. I might even use minced garlic instead of garlic salt . I cut the amount of olive oil down to one tablespoon to make the recipe a lot healthier. I not only coated the bottom with olive oil, I also coated the fish before putting on the spices."
"I brushed olive oil over both sides of each fillet, and also sprinkled both sides with cajun, pepper and garlic salt. I also added 1 crushed garlic clove, and squeezed some lime juice over them. Yum!!! Thanks for the post!"
"This was delicious, and very easy."
"Great Recipe! I sauted 1 med onion and 1 clove garlic and placed on top during baking. EXCELLENT!!!!"
"I used 2 lbs (not 1) of fish, but I didn't even use 1 T of cajun seasoning or garlic salt, and my dh and I thought it was quite spicy. However, I was impressed that 2 of my kids still ate it (after rinsing it), and one kid kept asking for more. 2 lbs was not enough for a family of 5!"
"My youngest was upset we were having fish, but ended up having seconds. Very good. Will definately make again. Thanks Mollyjoy"
"I thought is had great kick, thanks!"
"Overall a good recipe, I thought it was a little bland on flavor and had to eat it with tartar sauce. Very easy and quick to make."
"This went over well in our house, especially as it was a "weird" type of fish. I used fresh garlic as well and upped the pepper and cajun seasoning."
"This is a terrific recipe! I used a bit more of the cajun seasoning than recommended and the market didn't have cilantro, so I used fresh parsley. It came out great amd was so easy to make. I had to have seconds."
"This was the best fish I've ever made. Thanks. Instead of garlic salt, I rubbed fresh roasted garlic (really soft) all over the fish, then added spices and cilantro. I grilled instead of baking it. Fantastic! Can't wait to make this one for guests."
"The mister really liked this."
"This recipe was VERY EASY to make and my whole family loved it! It's a keeper! Thanks, Mollyjoy!"
" It is rare that I can buy Tilapia in my small town but it was on sale frozen and I snapped it up. We love Cilantro and it was lovely on the fish. I was liberal with the Cajun seasoning and used fine roasted garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I have more Tilapia in the freezer and just may do this recipe again - Thanks Mollyjoe for a new taste sensation"
