    Tasty, easy to make. Would be best if served with a side of rice.

    Substituted cherry tomatoes for bell peppers - have the dish some extra moisture and light tomato coating. Seasoned the fish heavily with salt and pepper before pan frying. Quinoa side went well with the wet tomato-ey onions. 9-Year old and wife both liked it and gave it the thumbs up to make again.

    The sautéed tilapia turned out great, truly delicious. However, I did make a few adjustments to the recipe. First, instead of salt, pepper and onion powder I used Old Bay seasoning, which has celery salt, pepper, and paprika (for color). I only used part of an onion and pepper, which turned to be enough. I changed the order for cooking; first sautéing the onions, peppers, and garlic. I pushed those aside and added butter, then the tilapia. After cooking, I plated the tilapia, then added the lemon juice to make a sauce, pouring it over the fish. When my wife first tasted the tilapia she exclaimed, this is really good!

    This website did not take me to the recipe! After I had gathered all of my ingredients for the meal I clicked on directions and it brought me to everything but the directions for my meal. Very disappointed!

    It turned out good. Seasoned fish with garlic and obay! Sautéed the fish is a little bit of oil. Then I sautéed garlic, onion, and bell peppers. Then added lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce and salt and paper. Put fish back in and tossed it in the sauce. It was pretty good! Will make again

    Tender and Moist. I’m not a fan of Bay Seasonings so I mixed parsley, a little garlic powder and Hungarian Sweet Paprika with the butter/canola mix. I served the fish with a dill sauce. We loved it.

    It was really good. i added a bag of cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and cooked it with the other veggies and ate it on the side.

    Really good! Quick and easy to make. Hubby enjoyed it. I added some Jamaican jerk seasoning and mild scotch bonnet pepper sauce to the fish and it was really good. Will keep in the rotation.
