    This tilapia recipe is delicious and ready in just 30 minutes. The fresh flavours of tomatoes, white wine and capers complete the dish. If asparagus isn't in season, you could use another green veg, like broccoli or even spinach.

    Ceviche is Peru's national dish, and although found in other countries, the Peruvian version is widely considered to be 'The Daddy'. Simple to prepare and quick to 'cook' (it isn't raw after all, the lime juice cooks the fish). The rocoto chilli is what lifts this dish to being authentically Peruvian instead of just a western take on a real classic.

    In this easy recipe, fish fillets are coated in mustard and onion, then baked. Very versatile and easy. Works just as well with other types of fish fillets, including Vietnamese river cobbler, salmon, trout, haddock, etc.

    A delicious Cajun gumbo made with tilapia that will have your mouth watering for more. Catfish or cod can be used instead of tilapia. Okra - also known as ladies' fingers - is a staple in the American South, as well as in Indian, Caribbean and Middle Eastern cooking. Enjoy this easy but exotic fish stew!
