I love looking for recipes on Twitter! There are a couple of ways to do this.
First, you can search for the keyword “recipe” on Search.Twitter.com. Combine it with whatever specific food you’re looking for. Of course, when you do this you open yourself up to every fool tweeting about mama’s sloppy joe recipe. You really never know what you’ll get.
I prefer to ask my trusted followers/friends on Twitter, because, well… they rock! And I know, without a doubt, they will give me a winning recommendation!
I recently asked what I could do with tilapia: not breaded, and using “normal” ingredients. I had no capers or truffles, nor gorganzola cheese. I got some incredible suggestions and I thought I’d share them here! You should DEFINITELY follow all these cool tweeps!
@RealLifeSarah we love it grilled with Cajun seasoning on it topped with steamed spinach and steamed cherry tomatoes.
@RealLifeSarah Orange Soy Fish Marinade ½c orange juice ½c soy sauce ¼c ketchup fresh parsley (opt) 2 cl. minced garlic 2 tbsp lemon juice
@RealLifeSarah We bake tilapia in foil pouches (1 per pouch) w/2 thin lemon slices, thinly sliced onion, oregano and some salt/pep.
@RealLifeSarah check your recipe app on #hpwebprinter. Search “fish” – the baked fish filets look easy & not breaded
@RealLifeSarah Try this: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Broiled-Tilapia-Parmesan/Detail.aspx
@RealLifeSarah it’s not a recipe really, but it’s good. Salt, pepper, & a squeeze of lemon = yummy.
@reallifesarah season with cajun (fav seasoning) baking dish, top ea fillet with two lemon slices broil for 15 min at 350 serve (w/dill s)
@CathyIsReal (formerly frugalgirl)
@RealLifeSarah I cook my tilapia very simply…..with salt, pepper, lemon and dill….(it’s our dinner tomorrow night, actually.)
@haleyshandmades (fellow standard poodle enthusiast)
@RealLifeSarah Bake in oven with pats of butter until cooked. Salt and pepper and add lemon to taste. Can pepper before cooking too.
@RealLifeSarah or drizzle with olive oil season with salt and pepper and squeeze lemon over at end.. or use a blackened seasoning and cook
@sthrnfairytale (Again! A wealth of yummy information, this one!)
@RealLifeSarah non breaded with normal ingredents? Um.. lightly drizzle olive oil and lemon pepper… grill or cook in saute pan
So do you want to know which one we prepared? I loved all the suggestions, but something about the AllRecipes version caught my taste buds. Well, lets be honest, it was the Parmesan Cheese! I would marry Parmesan cheese if it were legal. OK, that’s going a little too far, but I love it, anyway.

It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Loved it! So, I’m going to have to go back and get more tilapia to try these other options!
And next time you’re looking for a recipe, skip searching through a myriad of irrelevant recipes! Ask the Twitterati!
