When I get sick of salmon, I’ll switch over to tilapia for a bit. This is mostly because it’s the only other fish I can buy at my store. In the past, I’ve made the low cholesterol fish and chips with my tilapia, but I wanted something different this time around. Honey lime sounds like a great combo. so I was excited to give this one a try. For this recipe you will need:
- Lime juice
I don’t know that I’ve ever made a tilapia recipe that didn’t taste like I just added flavor on top of the fish instead of a flavor that melds with the fish. This was no exception. The honey lime marinate was nice, but very subtle and didn’t permeate the fish, so it wasn’t a robust flavor. I know this happens, but every time I cook tilapia I think it’s going to be different.
I’m not sure what I could have done differently. Maybe marinading overnight would have allowed the flavor to really get deep into the flesh of the fish. I will probably try this again doing that just to see. I really wanted this marinate to work, so I’m willing to try again.
