Easy Baked Tilapia is a perfect way to introduce your children to fish. This recipe is also easy to kick up a notch by adding your favorite salsa on top.
If you are wanting an easy dinner recipe, this Easy Baked Tilapia is the way to go. You can bake a couple of filets or fill a casserole dish to feed the whole family – it’s that simple.
Barbara’s girls eat this every time without complaining. And it’s healthy.
Don’t be scared to introduce your kids to fish. Tilapia has a very mild flavor so it is a great fish to incorporate into your family dinner rotation. This Easy Baked Tilapia is a great alternative to frozen fish sticks.
And if you are like our family, we are always looking for good fish recipes, especially during Lent (although we all enjoy fish year round) when we eat fish every Friday.
You could use any seasoning blend in your cabinet, but Barbara’s girls prefer Shoup’s Seasoning. If you can’t find Shoup’s Seasoning, you can make your own house blend by mixing salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
Do not overcook your fish. It will be done when it easily flakes and is just opaque throughout.
Add a couple sides, and you’ve got dinner. A simple house salad and sweet potato does the trick for us.
If this recipe seems a bit bland to you, add our Black Bean Caviar Salsa to the top of your fish for some extra flavor.
