Tilapia With Roasted Red Pepper Mayonnaise

Tilapia With Roasted Red Pepper Mayo

Diana Rattray
This flavorful tilapia is baked with a simple spice mixture, then it's served with a tasty roasted red pepper mayonnaise. This tilapia recipe is quick and easy to prepare, bakes in as little as 15 minutes, and the mayonnaise mixture gives it an extra burst of flavor.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 to 10 tilapia fillets, about 3 to 4 ounces each
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons melted butter or butter flavored nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, light or regular
  • 3 tablespoons chopped roasted red bell peppers
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • dash garlic powder
  • dash onion powder
  • salt, to taste


Heat oven to 400°. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the paprika, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper.

Arrange the tilapia on the baking sheet; drizzle with a little melted butter or spray lightly with butter flavored spray and sprinkle fillets evenly with the spice mixture.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until cooked through and fish flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, chopped roasted red pepper, lemon juice, dashes or onion and garlic powder in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add salt to taste and serve with the fish.

Serves 4 to 6

Best tilapia recipe!, Member indpndtnchk22

This could be sold in a restaurant! And it's so easy it's crazy! This is by far my favorite fish recipe I've found yet, the hint of roasted red pepper makes the dish! Next time I think I'll leave out the salt in the spice mixture and just use a dash in the red pepper sauce because it was a bit over powering but I can't wait to make it again!
