Tilapia (Broiled)


Tender, Healthy, and Tasty

Tilapia. I’m always interested in healthy cooking, but sometimes it’s hard to find recipes that are tasty and healthy, especially when it comes to fish. This recipe is a keeper.

Merle, Jane, and two of their grandchildren.

A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a new dish in the home of friends. Merle Eby is the chef on this one, and it’s his recipe. Merle loves trains, his grandkids, and Jane, his bride of 50+ years. He also loves to cook and concoct his own recipes.

When he put the Tilapia in the oven, it was ready in minutes. Granted, the bacon adds calories – but it only takes a few strips to feed eight to ten people.

It’s tender, it’s tasty, and it’s tilapia-icious!

One thing convenient and nice about this recipe is that you can wait until your guests arrive before popping the tray into the oven. If someone is running late, it doesn’t matter because you won’t be trying to keep food warm while you’re waiting. You can have the food ready ready to go into the oven, so it won’t take long once your guests arrive.

Fun facts

Tilapia is the second most popular farmed fish on the planet. It is a great source of protein. They have higher amounts of Omega 6 fatty acids. This is still a safe level, and has benefits.

The How-to for this recipe in Under 15 Minutes

You’ll need Tilapia, season-all seasoning, garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning, and 3-4 strips bacon. It will be done in 10-12 minutes.

Use a cookie tray for easy baking, or you can use a casserole dish if you’d like. The tilapia can then be served in the same casserole dish. You can use this same recipe for other fish. With this recipe, the mild flavor is enhanced by the seasonings and the bacon in the recipe.
