If you have an open grill rack use a grill basket or make a foil boat to place the fillets on or you'll lose part of the tilapia when turning.
Stir together cilantro, garlic, honey, and lime juice in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until the honey is easily stirred, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Rinse tilapia fillets, pat dry and place in a baking dish, season with salt. Evenly pour marinade over the tilapia, cover and refrigerate 10 minutes. If you choose to use an oven to bake the fillets then disregard the 10 minutes for marinating before cooking and simply pop directly in to the oven after covering with the marinade. If grilling, discard marinade after marinating.
Coat grill rack (or foil boat) with cooking oil or Pam and preheat grill to high heat. If using an oven preheat to 425 degrees F.
Grill or bake tilapia fillets for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque and easily flaked with a fork. For moist filets, check each minute once turned so you don't overcook.

Salt fish, squeeze fresh lemon or lime onto fish, lay thin slice of tomato on top. Put two Spring onions on top and bake for 5 minutes or until flaky at 350 degrees F.
I like to serve it with cheese grits and steamed asparagus. Good with a chardonnay white wine.

No matter how much a person likes and is good at cooking, there's always room for improvement and I am no exception! Here's a more refined and tastier moist, flaky version of how I originally made this dish.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a glass baking dish or foil boat.
Rinse tilapia fillets, pat dry, season with salt and pepper and place in baking dish or foil boats.
Melt the butter with the olive oil over medium high heat in a small saucepan and saute the garlic until just softened and fragrant. Be sure to turn down the heat a bit if butter is getting too hot.
Remove butter and oil from heat, mix in the lemon juice and drizzle over fillets. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley and bake for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.

Serve with a salad and light vinaigrette dressing.
I use Tilapia because it's less expensive than Sole or Snapper but cooking any of these with this recipe is yummy. Serve with a butter lettuce, coated with a light vinaigrette, salad and rice on the side.
A couple of weeks ago I read this recipe online and decided to give it another go. This recipe was a hit with everyone!
