Recipe: Tilapia for Dummies

My sister-in-law shared her secret to cooking the easiest tilapia dish ever: Nuke it!

Tilapia for the Time-Strapped Misis


2 pcs medium-size tilapia
Rock salt
3 tomatoes, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
  1. Clean fish. (I can't, for the life of me, clean fish, so I had the dude at the seafood section do it for me.)
  2. Make slits along the body. Rub with rock salt.
  3. Place in deep, microwave-proof dish. Top with chopped tomatoes and onions.
  4. Cover and microwave on medium high for 15 minutes.
  5. Squeeze lemon over fish before serving. Done!
P.S. It's a little jarring cooking something with eyes.:s
