Baked Garlic Lime Tilapia

Wednesday was the first day of Cuaresma (Lent), so you know what that means, right? Meat-Free Fridays are back! Every Friday from now until Good Friday (April 3rd) I'll be sharing a new meat-free recipe. I'll try my best to include pasta and veggie-based dishes, along with seafood dishes.

For our first Meat-Free Friday of 2015, I'm sharing this easy Baked Garlic Lime Tilapia: moist and tender baked tilapia in a simple mayonnaise sauce flavored with garlic and lime. This recipe is one of the first seafood dishes I made for Hubby when we were newlyweds, and it's been a family favorite ever since.

Baked Garlic Lime Tilapia

  • 6 tilapia steaks, thawed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium limes 
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro  

In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, minced garlic, the juice from the 2 limes, and the zest from one lime. Stir in the chopped cilantro; season with salt and pepper. Pour half of the sauce over the tilapia in a medium glass bowl, making sure that all sides are coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet with cooking oil. Arrange the tilapia steaks on the baking sheet. Spoon the remaining sauce on each of the tilapia steaks. Bake at 425°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Serve with Mexican Rice and NopalesEnjoy!
