My version of Ruby Tuesday's New Orleans Seafood, minus the shrimp. I merged a few different recipes and came up with this. It comes pretty close! Three fillets are usually enough for my husband, my toddler, and myself. I serve this with rice and steamed broccoli, to really feel like Ruby Tuesday's recipe!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Brush the tilapia fillets with oil on both sides, season with Creole seasoning to taste, then place into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the flesh is no longer translucent, and the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic has softened and the aroma has mellowed, about 2 minutes. Stir in the Alfredo sauce and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, and keep warm until the fish is ready. Pour the sauce over the fish to serve. Sprinkle with additional Creole seasoning if desired.

This is a simple yet delicious way to serve Tilapia! I had my dinner ready in about 15 minutes...which is amazing for me! I season my fillets with either Penzey's Northwoods Seasoning or Penzey's Jerk seasoning and while it's baking, I make up a quick home-made Alfredo Sauce with 1/4 cup of butter, some fresh garlic, 1/2 cup of half & half, 3/4 cup good Parmesan (grated) and a little Italian seasoning. (Just saute the garlic in the butter over med/high heat, then add the other ingredients, stirring until blended.) This recipe is definitely a keeper - thanks for a new way to serve up Tilapia!

This recipe is FANTASTIC. I'm sure it's wonderful with the Creole seasoning but I can't eat spicy food so I used Johnny's Seasoning instead. When the sauteed garlic was just right I added some raw shrimp and cooked them until they were almost done, added the Alfredo sauce and heated it throughly. By the time the sauce was ready to top the fish the shrimp were perfectly cooked. Who needs to go out to eat. This is fare fit for a king. Read More

Out of the 10 recipes I have tried on this site this is my favorite. I used the roasted red pepper alfredo instead of regular alfredo and it was amazing. Read More

OMG...this just works!!! I was a bit hesitant to top my beloved tilapia with alfredo sauce. I am so glad I did as it takes it from wonderful to amazing! I bake my tilapia the same way, but have never added a topping. I did take Westie Mom's advice and made my own alfredo sauce as I don't care for the jarred stuff. I followed her recipe for the sauce which is: 1/4 C butter, fresh minced garlic, 3/4 C parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup half and half and a bit of Italian seasoning. It was perfect! I actually used 2 T fat free half and half and 2 T heavy cream because this is what I had. Do yourself a favor and make this sauce! You only need a couple tablespoons for each piece of fish so it is worth the splurge! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Very Very Tasty! I did make my own alfredo sauce for this because jared ones are just not very good. This was gobbled up by all three of my children. It has been put on the "make again" list! Read More

I was a little worried about the alfredo with fish, but it was de-lish! Wish I had some broccoli or asparagas to go with it though, I think that would have really complimented the dish!! Thanks for a great meal! Read More

We eat a lot of Tilapia and were growing bored with the same style over and over again. When searching for a different taste I decided to give this recipe a try and it was wonderful. We will be having it again. Read More
