In a large bowl, mix the honey, lime juice and garlic. Season tilapia with salt and pepper, place in the bowl and marinate 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
Arrange the squash and asparagus in the baking dish. Place tilapia on top of vegetables and season with chicken seasoning. Discard remaining marinade.
Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until vegetables are tender and fish is easily flaked. Sprinkle with mozzarella and continue baking 5 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
I thought this dish was lovely but I didn't like wasting the rest of the marinade so next time I kept the marinade and in a pan I fried some mild curry powder, some ginger powder, some ground cumin then added the rest of the marinade and some coconut cream to make a curry sauce!
