Need Tilapia help

Each time we've made talapia, we make it the same way: each fillet goes into a foil pouch, along with butter, lemon slices, green onion slices, garlic & pepper.

But, I bought some for tomorrow's dinner & it occurred to me that dh won't be home till right at suppertime, and I can't grill to save my life.

Can this same foil-pouch idea work in the oven?

Rachel Ray did, but she used parchment paper I believe. She also used EVOO instead of the butter, but I think the rest is the same as what you are doing. So, I would say yes you can use the foil, but since it retains heat more than parchment paper you will have to adjust so as not to overcook it.

thanks you two!

What temp would you use, and how long?
(keep in mind I've been cooking for years, but I've only been "trying" to eat seafood for a year, and when I do, dh grills it each time)

One of the ways Buck and I like tilapia is to dip in beaten egg then in panko crumbs. Put on waxed paper in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes, then cook, on both sides, in about 1/4 inch of canola oil until crisp. Season with salt and pepper and serve with tartar sauce. Sooooo good. Quick, too.

Katie, pan frying is still my favorite way!
As for oven temps and times, depends on the size of the foil packet, but I would hazard if you put two fillets in each packet then maybe 350 for 20 minutes. But wait for others to answer first, I may be wrong here! Might be as little as 15 minutes, or someone has a better method on lower heat longer, or higher heat shorter.

Just made some tonight fried like catfish and home made tarter sauce. I will hafto try the panko next time. I love Tilapia so mild it makes a great fish sandwich.

Yes....Preheat your oven to 350* After 15 minutes check it for doneness. Keep in mind that left foiled it will continue to cook...

Enjoy!

My oven runs hot so I put mine on at 325 for 15-20 min. depending on thickness..
And do open the foil as they come out of the oven otherwise they will continue to cook.
