  • Place tilapia fillets in the bottom of the baking dish and season with seafood seasoning. Melt butter with garlic in a small bowl in the microwave, about 30 seconds on medium; pour over fish. Top each fillet with a slice or two of lemon. Arrange the frozen mixed vegetables around the fish, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until vegetables are tender and fish flakes easily with a fork, 25 to 30 minutes.

This was really great! My family only likes cauliflower raw but I did have a green and yellow bean with carrot mix on hand. This dish was so flavorful! The lemons flavored the vegetables too and it was such a great meal! My kids loved it also! Will DEFINATELY make again but will add more old bay seasoning next time! Read More

It was delicious and easy to make! I cooked it for 25 minutes and substituted the red peppers for carrots instead. Still came out perfect.:-) Read More

My daughter and husband gobbled this up. (My daughter is a typical 10 year-old who finds fish suspicious and rejects my offerings but she LOVED this.) I did not have the Old Bay so I looked up a substitute and this is what I found: 2 ½ Tbs. paprika 2 Tbs. salt 2 Tbs. garlic powder 1 Tbs. black pepper 1 Tbs. onion powder 1 Tbs. cayenne pepper 1 Tbs. dried leaf oregano 1 Tbs. dried Thyme Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container. Makes about 2/3 cup Served with brown rice (The three minute kind from Trader Joe's) Excellent! Read More

WOW! I was pleasantly surprised at this recipe. Talapia is generally pretty bland but this was tasty. I had to alter it a bit since I didn't have the recommended seasoning and I used fresh cauliflower and carrots but I think the butter and the lemon was the key. My husband doesn't like fish and he didn't like this either so it probably won't convert a non-fish lover but I thought it was excellent. Read More

My family LOVES this. It tastes great it's healthy and it's EASY. The first time I made it I included the lemon but I haven't since then. It wasn't bad we just aren't lemon ppl. I change up the veggies with whatever is fresh at my local produce market. Read More
