I recently had a really delicious broiled tilapia. I’m pretty picky about my seafood, I don’t like it to be too fishy, so I like the more mild fish, like tilapia. The problem that I run into is that the milder fish is kind of bland. So, how do you spice it up without completely destroying the fish itself? I’ve had it served with a red sauce before, and it wasn’t the finest I’ve ever had. Tilapia is so mild that serving it with a tomato based sauce just completely overwhelms the fish itself. This tilapia is lightly broiled, which makes it quick and easy. It’s topped with a parmesan herb mixture once it’s mostly cooked and then broiled until the topping is brown. It’s quick and easy, the fish doesn’t get over done. It stays moist and has a light flavor that is well seasoned without being overwhelming. It’s going to be one of my new favorite ways to make tilapia.

Tilapia has always been my favorite fish to eat. It’s very low in Points Plus, and it is so delicate and mild tasting, which makes it a great canvas for lots of exciting toppings and sauces. This Artichoke and Parmesan Tilapia Recipe is very simple, and takes just minutes to prepare. Yet, it is so flavorful and light. This is a great healthy fish recipe to make when you are having a busy day and not much time or energy is left to put into cooking dinner. Each delicious serving is just 3 Points +, which leaves plenty of extra Points on hand for dessert, or maybe a more carb-heavy side dish, liked roasted/mashed potatoes, or a pasta salad. This is definitely a great tilapia recipe to keep on hand for when you need dinner in a pinch. Enjoy!
I love recipes that are super quick and easy, and require little to no prep, but that are still super delicious. My good friend Hailey came up with the idea to use a bottle of salad dressing as a cooking sauce for her tilapia. I decided to give it a try myself, and I used the exact dressing she recommended…the Archer Farms Lemon Ginger Sesame Dressing from Target. I was amazed at how crazy good this recipe was!! The fish came out so moist and flaky, and the dressing made the perfect sauce for it…light and flavorful. Plus, it was so fast to prepare. This will definitely become one of my go to Weight Watchers Fish Recipes for when I want to get a healthy fish dinner on the table quickly, with no fuss. And each serving is just 6 Points +! Pair this with a salad or some roasted vegetables, and you’ve got the perfect low calorie dinner. Thanks Hailey!
A very close friend of mine makes the most delicious fish recipe every Friday night, for Shabbat dinner. Her family has prepared this Moroccan Fish for many years, and she too has picked up the skill of preparing such deliciousness. Both my husband and I have always enjoyed this dish when she has invited us for dinner, but after seeing my almost 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, gobble up his serving of fish and then ask for more, I was determined to give this Moroccan Fish Recipe a try myself. So after a phone call with my lovely friend, Gali, who gave me a very detailed explanation of how to prepare this fish recipe, I got to work. This popular Middle Eastern dish is actually very healthy, and pretty low calorie. I made a few minor adjustments to make this more of a Weight Watchers Recipe, but overall, it’s a very diet friendly dish. Each serving came out to 5 Points + and it was SO yummy. The family LOVED it. This is definitely going into my regular rotation! It’s so easy to make and it’s such an incredibly flavorful recipe. Just note that her original recipe actually uses real tomatoes, not canned, but I didn’t have enough fresh tomatoes on hand, so I used the canned, and it still turned out incredible. If you want to use fresh tomatoes instead, it will take a lot longer, as the tomatoes will need to cook down to a sauce-like texture. Additionally, you made need less broth. Either way, this Moroccan Fish Recipe is amazing, and I highly recommend giving it a try!
A mild, yet flavorful tilapia recipe, these Smothered Tilapia Fillet is the perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe idea.

And the carrots give this dish a lovely color and crunch too. It’s a wonderfully healthy fish recipe that the whole family will enjoy, and offers a great way to get in protein and nutrients without sacrificing taste.

This has become one of my go to Weight Watchers fish recipes when I need something quick and easy, healthy for my family, and still low in Points + for me. The fat from the nuts and fish is very satisfying without being oily or greasy. This Pecan Crusted Tilapia recipe goes wonderfully with some steamed vegetables and or a flavorful salad. Enjoy!
A friend of mine came across this delicious Broiled Tilapia Recipe last week, and posted it on Facebook. It looked so good, but I decided to re-vamp it and make it less Weight Watchers Points, but with more of the Parmesan cream sauce. Mission accomplished. That was one tasty, light broiled tilapia recipe! I was truly surprised at how good it turned out, and how much of the cream sauce I was able to get in each serving. At just 6 Points + for a very nicely sized piece of fish smothered in a delicious Parmesan cheese sauce, it’s a great bargain. I’ll definitely be making this again soon.
