This was delicious. I added some zuchinni to the onion and red pepper. I also used good cheddar instead of blue cheese. Will serve this again. Read More

This was edible but that's about all I can say for it. I thought it sounded odd but figured it had so many great reviews that I'd give it a try. I made it exactly as the recipe states. I didn't change anything. Maybe it's just my tastes but my girls and I did not enjoy this meal. My husband said that it was decent but he wasn't thrilled with it. I will not be making this again.

I used red onion, bell pepper and asparagus. I reduced the balsemic with the veggies while I broiled the fish, then added the veggies and cheese and broiled until the cheese was melted. Everyone LOVED this. I did use sharp cheddar for husband and kids because they don't like blue cheese. They still loved it. I had to use soy cheese for mine and it was still awesome, so this is very adaptable. Read More

Delish! Fantastic tilapia recipe! I ended up broiling it on low for a few minutes at the end. Also I served with rice instead of the greens. Thanks! Read More

I finally found a recipe that would make tilapia (or any fish fillet) more interesting! I modified the recipe by adding a bit of blackened seasoning to the fish. I placed the fish in baking dish lined with slightly greased al foil. Instead of blue cheese I used chedder which I think it's a mistake as the flavor was not strong enough. Next time will use blue cheese or feta cheese. Also I will add 1/2 more tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the onion and red pepper although I think for most people 2 tablespoon should be enough. I baked the fish at 400 for 15 minutes and for the first time I received compliments from husband on tilapia! Read More

Good stuff. Had to make sub the blue cheese w/ feta since I think blue cheese is one of the worst tasting substances on the planet. Cook time is approximately 20 minutes. I might try a little shorter time next time. Read More

I must admit that in my opinion tilapia is not the most exciting fish to work with - but this recipe makes it something extraordinary. I used feta cheese instead of blue and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious results. Read More

Really delicious! Followed the recipe almost exactly just did a half red pepper and a half yellow pepper. Only thing I left out was the cheese because I didn't have any. It was great without it but I'm sure it'd be even better with the blue cheese. Will definitely make again. Read More
