4 Tilapia Fillets
1 cup Red Bell Pepper chopped

1 bunch Green Onions with green tops chopped
3 garlic pods minced
1 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons fresh or dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon dried basil

Chop the pepper, celery, garlic, and onion.
Prepare the bread crumbs, I used some day old sour dough that I had on hand and just processed it in the food processor.
Add the rosemary, thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, cayenne, basil, and parsley to the bread crumbs and process until well blended.
Chop the fish fillets then process them in the food processor. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, pepper and a (large) dash of hot sauce to the fish and mix well.
In a large mixing bowl add the fish and chopped vegetables mix well. Add the bread crumb mixture and eggs and mix well.
Form the cakes and place on a oiled baking sheet, I sprayed the baking sheet with olive oil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and turn then continue to bake for 20 more minutes or until golden brown
The Baked Tilapia Cake is garnished with a Dill Yogurt Sauce.

But I'm thinking that in a cake form like this where there are other flavors mingled in -I could enjoy it. Thanks for sharing this!!

  32. Do you suppose the Tilapia Cakes would freeze well? I think I would love these, but hubby doesn't eat fish. They would be great in a lunch for me though. Thanks for sharing.

  33. Hi Loy,
    You sure can freeze those Tilapia Cakes and they are great. The last ones I had frozen for a couple of months. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Tilapia!
    Happy New Year,
    Miz Helen

  34. I made these and posted them on my blog. They were AMAZING! :)

  35. I did not think there was anything productive I could do to use up six fillets of mediocre tilapia, but I was willing to try. I didn't have any red pepper, so I added fresh corn instead. They were great!

    One complaint: the order in which the ingredients are combined is pretty confusing. Couldn't one just:

    Chop the vegetables
    Blend the fish
    Food process the bread and rosemary
    Combine all ingredients in a large bowl

  36. Nice recipe which you have shared here. You have shared such a nice information for Upalis. It is helpful for foodies like me. Keep it up.
