An easy one for tilapia fillets is this:
Cook fillets at 425 (I think) for 15 mins covered in 2 tbsp of sauce, any kind of sauce. Hot chow chow is my favorite.

Cook it on a soaked plank on your grill outside.

Never put anything FROZEN in a skillet.  Defrost it first.  And as for sticking/burning, remember "Hot pan, cold oil, food won't stick".  When a pan is hot enough, adding oil on top of the hot metal create a thin film of oil that goes into the pores of the metal, creating a "non-stick" effect. The oil then dances easily on the surface. You will now have to use less oil to saute or stir-fry your food. How to tell if a pan is hot enough?  If a drop on water in the pan sizzles loudly and boils off almost immediately.  You DO have to stand there, watch your food after you put it in the pan, and turn it when needed.

We like fish --catfish, salmon, steelhead, mahi-mahi, rainbow trout, walleye, halibut, snapper--  on the grill, or under the broiler.  If you don't have a fish holder (clamshell basket), cook on a cookie sheet coverd with foil, skin side down.  Season with a brush of olive oil, and a shake of lemon pepper, or cajun seasoning, or Old Bay.  Cook till fish flakes easily, and is no longer translucent.  If you don't mind the smoke, and the oil splatter in the house, you can fry in a pan, as per instructions above.

I absolutely love the tilapia in this recipe.  I've never done the salad portion of the recipe, just the fish.

I love fried fish, catfish especially.  I slather it wiht mustard, roll it in cornmeal and fry it.  The mustard just holds in the juiciness so the fish isn't dry

Depends on the kind of fish. For salmon I like it just simple in the oven. Make a foil pack, put the salmon in, pads of butter along the filet, lemons and a bit of dill on top. Bake at 350 for... At least half an hour, but depends on the size of the filet. Almost any fish can be done this way. Also, pan fried in olive oil is good. Cook one side, flip, season with garlic, coriander, sea salt and pepper. Always gets good reviews at my house.
