Cilantro Lime Tilapia

When coming to sea food I haven't experimented much. So far I have tried shrimp and tilapia fish. I always use my Flaky Fish recipe to cook Tilapia. Today I wanted try something new, so I have tried these new flavors with Tilapia ( not brave enough to change the fish, am always afraid to cook salmon due to it's smell, Tips Please!) in this recipe today. The zesty lime and cilantro flavors are perfect for this delicate fish. It's very simple and easy to make and will be ready in minutes. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Cilantro Lime Tilapia
Tilapia Fish - 4 fillets
Cilantro - 1/4 cup
Lime - 2 Tbsp
Garlic - 1 tsp ( minced)
salt - 1/2 tsp
black pepper - 1/4 tsp
paprika - 1/4 tsp
Olive Oil - 2 Tbsp

Grind Cilantro and Lime juice along with 1 Tbsp Olive Oil in the Blender. Take this into a bowl. Add salt, black pepper, paprika and minced garlic and mix well.  That makes your marinade ready.


  1. Add Tilapia fillet to this marinade until they are coated on all sides and close the lid for the bowl; leave it aside for 30 minutes. 
  2. After 30 min, heat the non stick pan and add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add marinated Tilapia to the Pan.
  3. After 2 min, you will notice the fish becoming soft and flaky. Turn them carefully to cook on other side until they are soft. 
  4. Switch off the stove and transfer them to a Serving Plate, and garnish with some cilantro and serve with Lime edges.
You can stuff this fish in Tortillas and serve as Fish Tacos with some Tortilla Chips and Salsa!

take care until we meet here again
