Blackened Baja Tilapia Tacos
Nothing's better than a fish taco, and this recipe takes it to the next level. A savory blend of spices gets a little extra something from a touch of sweetness, and adds a nice crust to the fish, while a pinch of red pepper flakes awakens the taste buds. I keep the garnishes to a minimum so the flavor of the fish prevails, but all of the usuals will go great on these. Click here to see Tasty Tilapia Recipes for Any Night of the Week.

Tilapia with Gazpacho Salsa
Here’s everything you love about the cold Spanish soup in a chunky salsa, whose bright, varied flavors are a nice counterpoint to the sweeter, more delicate fish (look for domestic tilapia for a sustainable seafood choice). If you have leftovers, serve the salsa on top of slices of toasted bread as gazpacho bruschetta.

Herbed Tilapia Envelopes
Fish en papillote isn't just a technique confined to French cuisine. Here, it's put to good use in a Mexican-inspired recipe that's on the lighter side. Tilapia soaks up flavors of intense jalapeño and a fresh herb mix, and a little squash completes the meal. This recipe comes to us courtesy of Ingrid Hoffmann, host of Delicioso on Univision.

Kumquat Salsa
Kumquats, the babies of the citrus family, have a sweet, edible rind and a slightly tart pulp (everything is edible except for the seeds). I typically muddle them in mojitos or caipirinhas, but incorporating them in this spicy salsa as a substitute for tomatoes adds a soft, sweet touch to this topping for quickly cooked fish.   You could also try adding cubes of ripe avocado to the salsa as well — I see no reason why that wouldn't be a fabulous addition. Alternatively, you can use other flaky white fish instead of tilapia if it's not available.  Click here to see more Sweet and Tangy Citrus recipes.

Basil-Wrapped Tilapia
There's nothing that smells more like summer than a beautiful fish cooking in basil. With this recipe you get a light summer dish, but also something that's very quick and easy to make. The basil is what makes this dish stand-out: once it's baked it gains a crunchy texture that is hard to stop eating. See all recipes for basil. Click here to see Bountiful Basil Recipes.

Earl Gray Poached Tilapia
Tilapia may be sort of a boring fish, but adding on complex layers of tea, lemon, and just a touch of butter helps make it both savory and clean-tasting. Feel free to experiment with any tea of your choice (and complementary flavors). See all recipes for chicken. Click here to see Tasty Tilapia Recipes for Any Night of the Week.
