I just put lemon pepper seasoning on it and a little bit of olive oil.

I'm thinking this doesn't work with your no-sodium plan, though. I don't cut sodium. Or eat much fish.

I eat a lot of fish. Pick a spice, any spice. I usually pop it in the oven and put some herbs/seasoning on it. Ginger, curry, lemon pepper, chili. Sometimes I'll make a little foil pack and put a little olive oil, garlic, and cilantro or rosemary in it. I've also with cooked it on the george foreman with balsalmic vinegar.

I was a crazy girl my first year & had a crazy trainer.....I didn't know any better. Anyways she had me eat tilapia for every protein source!
That was back in 07. I still can't eat tilapia.
For me tilapia has such an earthy flavor.....on the other hand atlantic cod has very little flavor. It seems to take on the flavor of whatever you cook it with.

Tilapia is about the only fish besides tuna I can tolerate...I can actually eat it w/o any seasoning. I have tried and tried to eat salmon but it is wayyyy to fishy for me.

I thaw mine out, put a teensy bit of olive in a frying pan and fry them for 5 mins on each side It gets kind of crunchy and holds it's size. I use to broil them but they shrank so much it was like I was eating nothing.

I baked tilapia yesterday with several spices: garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, cayenne pepper, curry powder and a pinch of salt. It was pretty good. I've also baked it and added a low sodium salsa (recipe below). It was really good. The salsa covered up the nasty tilapia flavor and has a nice kick to it, depending on how spicy you make it.

1-2 fresh jalepenos
1/8C cilantro
1/4C green pepper
2 garlic cloves
1 can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
1T lime juice concentrate
6 green onions
2T apple cider vinegar
- blend alll ingredients.

I second that, what a fantastic thread! My trainer pushes fish on me like crazy so I am always trying out new seasonings.

I found that pretty much ANY of the Mrs. Dash flavors taste great. My favorite is the Southwest Chipotle Lime....gives it kick and overwhelms the fishy taste, if any.

The best way to prepare it?.... BBQ!!! (use foil)

Happy Fish Eating! haha

I really prefer orange roughy over tilapia, but I second the Mrs. Dash seasonings - yum. I've also rubbed mustard (grey poupon) on it with a little black pepper and baked it with success. Tonight I'm doing a foil packet with some dill and lemon. I also found a very tasty green tea-peppercorn seasoning. Anything to mix it up
