What a great dish! The honey lime sauce was wonderful. I used fresh zucchini instead of squash (cutting it on a strong diagonal) I omitted the poultry seasoning...instead I drizzled the zucchini & asparagus w/ olive oil a little thyme celery salt the juice from one lime & a bit of lemon pepper (turning veggies to coat) & baked it for 10 minutes (because it turned out to be quite a pile of veggies) before topping it w/ fish. The veggies had a great flavor...especially the zucchini. I turned the oven to broil when I topped the fish w/ the mozzarella & broiled them until the cheese started to brown just a bit (it looked much more appealing than just melted cheese). I can't wait to have this aagin! Next time I think I will let the tilapia marinade for a couple hours longer. Read More

Really loved the honey-lime marinade...I agree with other reviewer and skipped the poultry seasoning and unless you like your veggies REALLY crisp 25 min is not enough to cook butternut squash. Tilapia tasted Great! Read More

I followed the advice of others and left out the poulty seasoning and mozzerela cheese also marinated about four hours instead of one and used seasonal veggies(zucchini and yellow squash) in place of butternut and asparagus. Family loved it and I will definatly make this again. Read More

This was a very tasty dish and we enjoyed it a great bit. I marinated the fish overnight and the flavor was more intense then the original time I made the dish earlier this month. Marinating the fish and cooking it in an individual tin foil packet worked wonders. I made the veggies seperate although and added in green and red peppers red onions and salt and pepper drizzled in olive oil. Very good and even my bf who usually only likes to eat red meat went back for seconds. Read More

The flavor was amazing. I make tilapia a LOT so it was nice to have a different flavor than our usual butter garlic dill flavor. Read More

I was looking for a new tilapia recipe and tried this tonight. We had no lime juice so I substituted fresh lemon juice. I also substituted fresh zuchinni for the squash canned asparagas was all I had on hand. Everyone thought this was delicious but next time I will omit the poultry seasoning...just did not sit right on my taste buds. Read More

My husband loves the honey lime flavour of the fish and the flavours tranfers to crunchy asparagus and squash when backed. Its simply awesome!! Mixed the vegies with some olive oil pepper salt and all purpose seasoning first before transferring the marinated fish on top of the vegies. Then I sprinkle all purpose seasoning on the fish and bake it!! This recipe is for keeps!! Thanks!! Read More

I followed this recipe pretty closely only skipping the poultry seasoning and mozzerella; also steaming the squash and asparagus for a few minutes before baking. Overall it was good but not exceptional. I really liked the marinade for the fish but did not find that baking the fish with the veggies was anything special other than my husband said it saved us a dish. I would probably make this marinade for baked fish again not sure about the rest. Read More
