Wow. I was pretty skeptical about this recipe. ("Tuscan"? I don't think so!) But the reviews were so glowing...and boy were they right. The crispy, toasty parmesan crust was a perfect match for the catfish, which was wonderfully tender. (I left off the tomatoes to make sure the cooking was even.) Quick, easily, and absolutely delicious. One note -- definitely pay attention to the instruction to place the fish 4 inches from the broiler, not right by the flames!-25 Feb 2008
This was really tasty. The fish didn't get cooked with the tomato slices on top, so I shoved them to the side. I had to keep it in the broiler for three additional minutes. It took six minutes on each side for exposed catfish to cook. I added mushrooms. I'll definitely make this again!-02 Dec 2007
I am a big catfish fan, actually most all fish. This hit the spot this evening. I noticed I had some frozen fillets in the freezer and had all the other ingredients. About 25 minutes later, I was enjoying my supper. I didn't alter the recipe, which is my tendancy on the second and third tries. As-is, this is a winner. I wil try it with mahi-mahi or grouper next.-07 Apr 2009

- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 pint grape tomatoes
- 1 can (15.5 oz.) cannellini beans, drained

This meal was SO simple and delicious. I had never used Philadelphia Cooking Creme before, but oh my gosh…that stuff is ssssooo good! I pulled off the “keep fresh seal” from the tub of creme and then licked it clean! That’s how good it was. And because this creme is so flavorful and rich, you don’t need to add much else to the fish to get a really tasty meal.
The recipe calls for Tomato Basil flavored cooking creme. While I’m sure that would’ve been delicious, my store was out of the flavor. So instead I got the Italian Cheese and Herb flavor. You can definitely choose whichever flavor you want! In fact, you could just keep making this same dish with different flavors of cooking creme, and it would be like a whole new dish each time. I might do that….
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- ⅛ tsp pepper
- ¾ lb tilapia fillets
- ½ of a 10 oz Philadelphia® tomato basil cooking crème (I used Italian Cheese & Herb)
- ¾ cup frozen sweet peas, thawed (I omitted these because I don't like frozen peas!)
- 1 ½ cups cooked brown rice
- Heat oil in a large skillet over med heat. Add fish sprinkle with pepper. Cook 3 min each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove from skillet keep warm.
- Add cooking crème to skillet. Cook & stir 3-4 min. Remove ⅛ c crème set aside.
- Stir peas & rice into skillet cook 3-4 min. Serve fish over rice. Top with reserved ⅛ c crème.

- Prep Oven, Pan & Pasta: Preheat the oven to 350°F, and spray a 9吉 pan with nonstick cooking spray (or grease the pan with butter or oil). Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Cool the pasta, and combine it with the mozzarella in a large mixing bowl.
- Cook Beef: In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil and add the ground beef. Cook for about 5 minutes. Once cooked through, remove the ground beef from the skillet and mix it into the pasta mixture.
- Make Sauce: Cook the garlic in the same skillet for about one minute. Then, add heavy cream, tomatoes, salt and black pepper. Simmer, stirring, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and beans and cook for 2 minutes more.
- Assemble Casserole: Add the tomato mixture to the pasta mixture and gently toss until evenly combined. Transfer to the prepared pan and top with parmesan cheese.
- Bake: Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

24 Incredible Paleo Meals to Make Using Tilapia
Tilapia is a nutritious and versatile fish that goes well with ceviches, fish bakes and other serving styles. It loves being paired with fruits and herbs alike, and is mild enough in flavor and texture that you really can be creative. Give some of these recipes a try!
Ceviche is a cold salad made from raw fish, citrus, and fresh vegetables. It’s popular in much of Latin American, especially in regions where fish are a main dietary component. Ceviche “works” because the acid in the citrus “cooks” the fish. How cool!
Take breakfast in a totally new direction by adding tilapia to the menu. These breakfast burritos are just the ticket for a satisfying breakfast thank to the protein from the fish, and a Paleo-friendly wrap made from eggs and flaxseed.
These amazing tacos are made with breaded tilapia, cabbage, lime, and a fresh pico de gallo with cilantro and tomatoes. You can serve them up on homemade cauliflower tortillas! Yes, you can enjoy your tacos on real tortillas! The recipe for these is included.
Here’s one of those meals you can throw in the oven and spend some time with your family (or getting things done) before dinner. There’s minimal prep work involved, and you end up with a flaky and delicious lemon tilapia dinner with pine nuts to garnish and tender asparagus spears.
I love one skillet meals because they use fewer dishes, and they tend to be quicker to prepare and cook than more elaborate dinners with multiple parts. Besides, why not enjoy a delicious combination of flavors like tomato, olives, capers, white wine, oregano, and tasty tilapia all at once?

This is a super easy meal that’s made balanced and complete with tilapia filets, leeks, sweet potatoes, red onion, asparagus, and coconut oil. This dish has plenty of healthy fats and varied flavors, and it goes from fridge to table in about fifteen minutes!
This is a tilapia recipe that really couldn’t be any easier. You’ll just need four ingredients: your fish filets, olive oil, lemon juice, and thyme. That’s it! You can use fresh thyme or dried—it won’t matter. The lemon really brightens up this dish and goes so well with the herbs.
Here’s an extra spicy tilapia dish that uses black radishes as a spiralized “spaghetti” and an awesome cilantro-jalapeno avocado tomato sauce. The combination of spicy jalapeno and cooling, refreshing avocado with fresh and crunchy radishes is amazing!
This southwestern tilapia is really simple to make. You’ll just need your fish, some cumin, lime, salt and pepper, avocado, tomatoes, and fresh cilantro to get your tilapia baked and flaky, and topped with a fresh and tasty avocado pico de gallo.
Foil packets are a really easy and delicious way to cook your food, because they lock in the flavors and steam so the fish won’t dry out and the flavors of nectarine, peach, garlic, and chipotle really meld together and soak into the tilapia to make a moist, flaky, and flavorful dinner.
For an extra fresh tilapia that’s even easy to make and takes just 2 minutes to cook, get out your fish and herbs half an hour before you plan to cook them and create an easy marinade with lemon, garlic, oregano, and oil of choice (I’d use avocado oil here, as coconut might solidify).
This dish might look fancy, but it really is very simple to make. The crunchy almonds add a lovely flavor to the fish as well as a great texture, and the lemon flavors add an extra brightness. You’re sure to be smiling when you bite into this tasty and almondy tilapia.
Tilapia goes really well with fresh fruit accompaniments, so I love the idea of making a fresh and light mango-lime salsa to go with it. This recipe cooks the tilapia in olive oil and spreads it with salsa made with red onions, lime, mango, red pepper flakes, and fresh cilantro. If you don’t love cilantro, try basil or mint instead.

Garlic and butter are a match made in heaven. Am I right? This tilapia is sautéed with both of them along with minced shallots, Dijon mustard, prosciutto, lemon juice, and freshly ground black pepper. You can replace the canola oil with olive oil or your cooking fat of choice.
I love, love, love pineapple with savory dishes, and this fresh ceviche with tilapia, radishes, coriander, and yams is perfect. Your yam chips act as the vehicle to get this amazing ceviche into your mouth, all while being healthy and nutrient-dense in their own right. Bonus!
Here’s another go at ceviche with lemon, lime, garlic, fresh chopped cilantro, red onion, salt, and pepper. Many traditional ceviches use peppers to increase the heat, so if you think you can take it, you can add a habanero pepper (or part of one) to this dish. Just wear gloves when you chop it!
Who needs tortillas when you can make an awesome fish taco salad on coleslaw with avocados, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, lemon, and lime? This fish is cooked garlic and Mexican chili powder, served with a mango jalapeno salsa, and dressed with a creamy, spicy dressing (use coconut yogurt instead of Greek if you’re dairy-free).
This is a bold and spicy tilapia with a lot of flavor. If you want to enjoy a nice blackened fish filet but don’t think you can handle the spice, try decreasing the cayenne pepper—cut it in half or, if you’re very sensitive or serving kids, just use a pinch.
This tilapia is buttery and delicious with curry powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and lemon, and is served with a delicious seasoned yogurt sauce. If you don’t eat dairy, coconut yogurt will work just fine in the sauce, and will add a lovely coconut flavor to complement the curry.
This is a unique dish that’s intensely flavored with Meyer lemon, cayenne, paprika, honey, and olives, and other spices. You’ll need to replace the sugar with coconut sugar (or leave it out, as it’s such a small amount), but then you’ll be minutes away from an amazing, spicy, warming fish dinner.
Here’s an easy fish stew flavored with tomatoes, red bell peppers, scotch bonnet, onion, and seasonings. In place of the vegetable oil, you can use your fat or cooking oil of choice. Check to make sure you stock cub is paleo, or just replace the stock cub and water with homemade, tasty stock!
This tilapia is just bursting with Mediterranean flavors from onion, cloves, white wine, tomatoes, kalamata olives, capers, and lemon. Cooked with butter, it’s super buttery and delicious, and cooks into a saucy vegetables mixture you can enjoy right along with your fish.
Want another replace for a complete meal featuring tilapia? Try this one with subtle, fragrant saffron, strings of tomatoes on the vine, peas (you can use frozen ones), fresh cilantro, butter, nutmeg, cardamom, and healthy coconut oil. Serves two in just a few minutes!
Here’s a delicious and creamy Brazilian fish stew using tilapia filets, bell peppers, and diced tomatoes. It’s seasoned with ground cumin, paprika, garlic, onion, and fresh cilantro and served in a beautiful coconut milk broth that perfectly complements the brighter, spicy flavors.

Place the bread in a serving dish, add the tomatoes and the strained onion rings. Dress with oil, salt and basil.
Useful tips and interesting facts
You will need Tuscan bread for the original Panzanella recipe. An unsalted loaf made from soft flour. In fact, in Tuscany it is actually known as “pane sciapo” (meaning unsalted bread) owing to this one of a kind characteristic. Use stale bread, so long as it is hard and not likely to crumble when it comes into contact with the water and vegetable juices. The onion is soaked in water and vinegar to mitigate its pungent flavour. Panzanella is actually a light summery vegan dish, suitable for all palates. If you are after an even more intense flavour, you can prepare panzanella a couple of hours before serving but, in this case, remember to leave the bread to soak for only a few minutes.
If you wish to add a crunchy element to your panzanella, throw in some diced cucumber. Instead of unsalted Tuscan bread, you could use a wholemeal or multigrain loaf.
Tilapia Fish Burgers
Fish Burgers probably aren't what you think of immediately when it comes to a burger, but you will be shocked by how delicious these simple fish burgers can be. Flavored with ingredients you already have in your pantry, these simple burgers are full of flavor and seriously good.
Burgers are something I can almost always get everyone to agree on for dinner. Fish not so much. So a fish burger is a happy compromise that usually works for everyone. I decided to use tilapia for this burger since it's inexpensive and I don't feel like I am "wasting" it on a burger recipe.
However another sturdy white fish or salmon would work great as well depending on what you like best. Topped with some fresh avocado, tomatoes, and sprouts - it's a delicious, lighter burger you'll love.
Since tilapia can be on the bland side, it's important to add tons of flavor to your burgers. In this case, I used a combination of garlic, Dijon mustard, paprika, onion powder, basil, salt, and pepper to kick up the flavors. However, you could really spice them up any way you want. I have made blackened fish burgers with chili powder, cumin, paprika, and garlic powder and simple lemon pepper burgers with lemon zest, Parmesan, and tons of black pepper.
Think of tilapia like you would ground turkey or chicken - it's kind of a blank canvas you can spice up any way you like.
In terms of topping these burgers, normally I just go with something simple like some sliced avocado, fresh tomatoes, cucumber, and lettuce or sprouts. However, when I am feeling more ambitious, I will whip up a simple yogurt dressing or lightened up tartar sauce to dollop on top. For the yogurt dressing, I usually just add crushed garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, and fresh herbs to full fat yogurt. For a lightened up tartar sauce, mix equal parts yogurt, low fat mayonnaise, and relish.
