I was at that 'desperate' stage ... end of the paycheck, not much on hand, and had to find SOMEthing for dinner - quickly!
So I thawed out the frozen tilapia filets, and just started creating.
They turned out great! I'm not terribly 'confident' with baking fish, but I will definitely make these again. They were very tasty!
