This is a light and delicate dish, that's perfect anytime of the week. Talipia is spread with a tomato-olive oil paste, then baked with onions and green peppers, before being dotted with butter and grilled.
After reading the othe reviews, I made the following changes and everyone loved this dish: 1. I marinated the fish in Italian dressing for about 1 hour, 2. I used no-stick cooking spray on the pan, 3. used 1/4 cup low fat/low sodium chicken broth in the sauce instead of oil, 3. decreased the butter to about 1/4T per filet. - 06 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I added 1/2 fresh cut tomato instead of paste, 2-3 cloves of garlic crushed instaed of garlic powder, 1/2 tbs of red pepper powder for an extra kick and also some broccoli and corn .they do add abeautiful color to the dish .thanks for awonderful recipe Tiny Poems. - 02 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is delicious and so easy. I used fresh herbs from my garden and eliminated the butter, to cut the fat. I drizzled olive oil on the fish prior to broiling. Keep cooking time to a minimum, as overcooked tilapia turns leathery. - 25 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
