My family did not like this dish at all. Followed the recipe exactly. They love the broiled parmesan tilapia recipe from here so guess I will stick with it!

I modified it for the grill, and it was really really good!! I also added in more vegetables that I like. It was very spicy also, so I wouldn't necessarily feed this to kids.

I normally find tilapia pretty bland, but it really shines in this recipe. Very much enjoyed!

Very light and refreshing. I kept the jalapenos in large pieces so they were easy to pick out, and they still lent their spiciness to the dish.

Rather bland for our tastes. But don't let this stop you from trying it. We just like more muscular recipes.

My husband had never tried fish, but I made this recipe and he loved it. So now he eats fish, Yeepeee!

I made this last night. It was pretty good although it was a bit too hot for my tastes. I think next time, I'll just use one pepper. Anyhow, overall, it was really good.
