So simple and SO GOOD!! fresh and perfect.
I normally do not like fish but I devour the tilapia everytime I make this! It is so good! I make this almost once a week. Perfect for weeknights. I think it's the first recipe I've made that does not require ANY mincing or chopping :-)
Very tasty and easy. I often buy tilapia and am always looking for new ways to cook it. I like this simple idea of just pan frying it and adding a zesty pesto. I usually have cilantro and walnuts and everything else on hand so putting it together was a breeze. This dish also offers that great kid-friendly choice of sauce or not. Definitely will make again.
The pesto sauce is excellent! I seared some scallops and used this sauce, and they were amazing. I have passed this recipe along to others who have also tried it and loved it. It goes well with any seafood: fish, scallops or shrimp.
