A tantalizing sweet and tart dressing, highlighted with fresh tarragon, is drizzled over tilapia fillets. This is a very quick recipe, and tastes great.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven broiler. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet, and coat with 2 tablespoons butter.

  • In a bowl, whisk together 1 teaspoon lemon juice, melted butter, mustard, raspberry vinegar, honey, tarragon, salt, and pepper.

  • Place the tilapia on the prepared baking sheet, and broil about 3 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn tilapia, and drizzle with about half the lemon juice dressing mixture. Continue broiling about 3 minutes, turn, and drizzle with remaining dressing. Continue broiling about 2 minutes, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with remaining lemon juice to serve.

This easy dish was very tasty. I made some substitutions to cut saturated fat. I used olive oil instead of butter and added 2 tablespoons of butter buds. I also used dried tarragon. I doubled the sauce. Read More

This was a disappointment especially in light of the other glowing reviews. Our problem was the mix of two many flavors most of which were uncomplimentary to each other. Butter and honey? Butter and lemon juice? Butter and raspberry vinegar? Lemon juice and Dijon mustard? Even my husband who inhales anything you put on a plate (especially fish) thought this was marginal. I'm in the minority here but am glad I tried this. It could've worked. Read More

This was a great and quick recipe. I did not have rasberry vinger so I used apple. It turned out great. I would make a little extra dressing to sprinkle over fish after it comes out the brolier. My husband and I both enjoyed this very much. Thank you! Read More

2/24/19 - subbed pomegranate aged balsamic in place of the vinegar - delicious! 4/28/2016 - super easy and flavorful my daughter threw this one together when I asked her to make dinner the other night. Everyone loved it! 12/13/2004 - This sauce had great flavor - my husband used bread to soak up the leftovers! Very easy low fat and delicious! Read More

This was good. YOU NEED TO DOUBLE THE SAUCE RECIPE I didn't. The bites that had the sauce richly drizzled on them were really good! I used Olive oil instead of butter. Read More

I made this recipe with chicken breast and tripled the recipe for 5 chicken breasts I poked holes throughout the chicken and marinated the chicken in the sauce first. It turned out very good. I don't much like tarragon though so I will try anotherherb next time. Read More

Super Yummy! DH commented several times how good it was. It had a nice smokey flavor from the broiler. I was out of raspberry vinegar so I used pomegranate vinegar instead. It was so quick and easy. Will definitely keep this one in the rotation. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I doubled the dressing recipe- and am very glad I did it's fantastic! It's like a light tasting/ delicate honey mustard sauce. I think it complements the fish very well. The only other changes I made were out of necessity- I used apple cider vinegar instead of raspberry vinegar which I did not have and I used dried tarragon instead of fresh tarragon for the same reason. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Excellent! We are not big fish eaters but this is healthy and good. I did not coat foil with butter just sprayed it with olive oil. Used dill instead of tarragon. Read More

So easy and super delicious. My husband loved it. Substituted raspberry vinegar with apple cider vinegar and doubled the sauce amount so I had lots to pour over the fish. Seasoned the tilapia with salt and pepper then poured the sauce over it. Baked instead of broiled for 15 min. at 350 degrees. Read More
