Tilapia is so easy! I love this fish! You can fix it in less than 10 minutes and serve all within 30 minutes!
All You need is:

Baked Tilapia

6-8 Tilapia fillets
Salt and  black pepper
Garlic Powder
paprika or Cayenne or cumin -your choice
1 lemon or lime

Preheat oven to 375  F. Coat a baking sheet with butter.
Rinse fish and pat dry between paper towels; place on buttered baking pan. Season each fillet with salt,  pepper and garlic powder, and paprika (or cayenne seasoning), and sprinkle of lemon juice. Some add a small pat of butter on top of each filet.  Bake in the oven for 15- 20 minutes.You know it is done by testing one piece, flakes apart easily with a fork.

 For Tilapia Fish tacos

Bake Tilapia as above, but use the cumin or cayenne or chili seasonings
serve on warmed small corn tortillas with shredded cabbage and chopped cilantro and a lime to squeeze over.
toppings may include:
chopped tomatoes
chopped green onion, yellow or red onion,
shredded cheese (not a traditional topping but preferred by many Americans)

Tilapia is one of my favorite fish to make and the price is usually right, fits my budget perfectly and if making fish tacos- I can make so much with it; it works perfectly for feeding more people. Healthy, and perfect for company coming over! Yay! Love love love it!
