Golden Freshwater Clam

Tilapia with sweet honey and fresh lime recipe


  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1 pound of tilapia fillets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter for greasing
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus spears
  • Poultry seasoning to taste
  • 1/2 cup of grated mozzarella cheese


  1. Mince the garlic.
  2. Combine garlic, honey and lime juice in a large bowl or shallow dish.
  3. Season the tilapia fillets with salt and pepper och both sides.
  4. Place the tilapia fillets in the honey marinade and leave to marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  6. Grease a baking dish with butter.
  7. Peel, seed and slice the butternut squash.
  8. Trim and chop the asparagus.
  9. Place squash and asparagus in the baking dish and position the marinated tilapia fillets on top. (The marinade will not be used for sauce so you can discard it.)
  10. Season with poultry seasoning.
  11. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake until the vegetables are tender and the tilapia fillets can be easily flaked with a fork. This will normally take around 20 minutes.
  12. Sprinkle the fish with mozzarella and bake until the cheese turns light brown. This will normally take around 5 minutes.
