Cooking tilapia!!!

How long should i do a tilapia fillet for in the oven?And on what heat?

I bought it from tescos and whilst i normally cook fish no problem this is the first time i have cooked it, there is conflicting info out there ranging from 6 minutes to 20!!

its a lovely fish and very sustainable!
I suppose i am going to have to keep an eye on it!

i have cooked tilapia before, the whole fish not the fillet think i cooked it for about 20-30 mins in the oven as i had no instructions for it :oops: nice fish though

didnt know tesco sold them :? i buy them from a market in east london :giggle:

i would liken it to cod to be honest, not massively full of flavour but a nice fish nonetheless. well worth trying.

I love my fish!

oh thanx, I sea nowYeh most fish needs a bit of flavour doesn't it?I … oh thanx, I sea nowYeh most fish needs a bit of flavour doesn't it?I remember years ago people, friends raving on about trout, jees what a boring fish without flavour:thumbsup:



yea i guess but some people just add salt to it, i use so many spices that you might not actually get the true flavour of the fish :w00t:

try hot oven for about ten minutes@ 180, if you unsure press the fish at the meatiest part if its really soft you need a few more minutes, if it's solid it is overcooked, it needs to feel almost spongey to the touch, alternatively wrap it tight in tin foil with wine or weak stock and leave for about 15 mins, cant go wrong then.:thumbsup:
