I haven't tried this specific recipe yet, but I found it on Epicurious because it looks very similar to an excellent tilapia dish I had at a restaurant. The reviews are good. I'm not sure I have access to a banana leaf, though, so I may cook it in tin foil or parchment paper:

I just fry mine in a non stick skillet with a little lemon herb seasoning. I find the lemon pepper to be too harsh with such a delicate fish.

I always bake it in the oven at 400-degrees, 12 minutes. Sprinkle it with herb seasoning ... or just use garlic and dill ... or you can coat it in bread crumbs ... or use cumin, onion powder, pepper and garlic and mix with black beans and spanish rice ... mmmm. It's making me hungry.

coat it in plain breadcrumbs or crushed corn flakes (i use special k!) dont even need to dip the fish in egg or any batter just press into the breading so its not SUPER breaded, just has little crispness...bake and serve with fruit salsa...mmmmmmmm

I throw it on my George Foreman grill. Sometimes I'll sprinkle a little Old Bay seasoning on it.

Nothing fancy, but certainly tasty!

Tilapia is a mild white fish. It can be seasoned with a huge range of spices and it is easy to cook. I also can find it at a pretty good price. If you want fish, it's a good one to try.

My husband drizzles olive oil on it with sliced onions and fresh herbs and then seals it in aluminum foil and puts it on the grill. It poaches inside the foil very quickly and he serves it on brown rice.

tilapia recipe

i've got 2 great ones for you. in aluminum foil or a pan if you don't mind cleaning up- add chopped green peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach and marinara sauce. the other - when my sweet tooth is acting up- a little sugar free maple syrup added to the cooking fish!!!

marinate in a ziploc bag for three hours:
a little rice vinegar
low sodium soy sauce
minced garlic
red pepper flakes

and then bake or pan fry with sweet onions and stir-fried green beans. yum!

I sprinkle the fish with quite a bit of chili powder and a little salt, then cook it with PAM in a nonstick pan for about 4 minutes on each side. I serve it with a salad of black beans, corn, red bell pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, and cumin.

Blackened Tilapia
Serve with a green leafy salad and rice pilaf.
Servings: 4
• 2 tablespoons coarse salt
• 3 tablespoons paprika
• 2 tablespoons garlic powder
• 2 tablespoons onion powder
• 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
• 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon dried oregano
• 1 tablespoon dried thyme
• 4 six-ounce tilapia fillets
• 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil

In a shallow dish, mix the salt, paprika, garlic and onion powders, cayenne, black pepper, oregano, and thyme. Generously coat fish fillets with spice mixture. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, and add canola oil. Add fish and cook 3 minutes on each side, or until flesh is white opaque (cooked through) and spices are toasted. Transfer to plates, and serve.

COOKS NOTE: When blackening, make sure to use a heavy skillet (like cast iron) that can take the necessary high heat.
