Honey Mustard Tilapia with Onions and Broccoli #HollandHouseCW

honey mustard tilapia

I was a vegetarian for more than 10 years of my life.

During that time, I lost my taste for a lot of foods that I once enjoyed.

Most seafood is in that category. I used to love all seafood – fish, lobster, scallops, you name it. My preference just never came back, no matter how often I forced myself to try.

Last fall, I tasted tilapia for the first time. I was at a banquet buffet; I only knew it was pecan-crusted something. It was delicious.

Since then, I’ve tried tilapia a few times, just to make sure, and I’ve liked it every time. I decided it was time for the next step.

I told Joe that we should have tilapia for dinner some night.

I found this recipe in Everyday Food magazine. It used some other fishier-tasting fish, but we always make adjustments anyway.

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Make a vinaigrette by whisking together honey, mustard, vinegar, and oil.
  3. Toss the broccoli in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (or whatever oil you use at home). Cover a shallow baking dish with the oily broccoli, and roast it for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the florets are starting to brown and get soft. Toss roasted broccoli in 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette; set aside.
  4. Toss onion with 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette. Arrange in a single layer on a bar pan (or other shallow baking dish). Bake 5 minutes.
  5. While the onions are baking, add 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette to the breadcrumbs. Pour another tablespoon of the vinaigrette into a shallow dish. Coat each piece of tilapia with vinaigrette, then top it with breadcrumbs.
  6. Place the now-breaded tilapia filets on top of the partially-cooked onions. Bake until the fish is thoroughly cooked, about 7 minutes.
  7. To serve, top the fish with onions and a healthy heap of roasted broccoli.

We used Holland House white wine vinegar to bump this recipe up from good to great.

  1. This flavor combination sounds wonderful! I think my kids would dig it. I’ve always recommended tilapia to those who don’t like seafood. It’s so mild and easy to add yummy flavors to. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • It was really good. In the original recipe, they said to serve the onions on the side, but the flavors were so bold and delicious that we really liked it with the fish. We’ve been eating tilapia pretty often since I discovered it. Joe loves all seafood.
