Directions

  1. Combine the shallots, garlic, oregano, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, tequila, salt, and pepper in a gallon-sized sealable bag; shake to combine. Add the tilapia to the mixture and store in the refrigerator 2 to 4 hours, turning every 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and prepare the surface with cooking spray.
  3. Arrange the fish on the prepared baking sheet. Discard remaining marinade.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Really tasty!! My favorite tilapia recipe so far!! I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so made some modifications trying to keep with the spirit of the recipe (dried herbs instead of fresh, onion instead of shallot). I also value speed when preparing meals so instead of marinating, I just poured the marinade on top of the fillets, dumped some diced vegetables on top of them, and put them all in the oven together. A full, well-balanced, tasty dinner was on the table within 20 minutes of arriving home. Can't beat that.

I rated this recipe three stars as written....I was not real impressed. The second time I made it (not realizing I already tried this one), I put the fish in a 9X13 baking dish and scooped the marinade over the fish. I allowed this to sit for approx. 1 1/2 hours until baking it. I put sliced zucchini over the top, added some additional sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Then covered with foil and baked at 450 for approx. 23 min. or until zucchini was crisp tender. This was awesome!!! The whole family devoured it, including my picky 2 year old who even scraped her plate for the first time ever!!!

THE BEST TILAPIA RECIPE EVER! I made one teeny tiny change: OMIT the sugar. Put everything into a food processor and blend. What an AWESOME flavor. Thanks for sharing.
