  1. Mix the honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and garlic together in a bowl. Place the tilapia fillets in the mixture; allow to marinate in refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Remove tilapia from marinade, and discard the marinade. Place fillets into the prepared baking sheet, and sprinkle the black pepper over the fish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

AMAZING!!!! This is probably the best fish I've ever had. Before marinading, I poked holes on both side of fish to ensure the marinade would soak into the fish. I sprinkled it with a tiny bit of...

Very oriental flavor, would be good with stir fried rice.

Just so easy and flavorful!! I used rice wine vinegar instead of balsamic but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Marinated about 6 hrs. in the fridges and the flavors blended together so well... W...

I marinated this overnight rather than just for 30 minutes. It was an explosion of flavor in our mouths. And it must've smelled darn good, because my 1 year old who has become quite the picky ea...

This was a very easy and inexpensive recipe. I used sugar free honey (diabetic husband) and it turned out perfect! I reserved some of the marinade before I added the fish and used it to dip th...
