A few years ago, I'd never heard of tilapia. Now it's everywhere. Many people love it, though a lot of chefs apparently turn their noses up at it. But for home cooks, tilapia is an inexpensive, mild-tasting fish that can be used in all manner of fish recipes, from chowders to tacos. Here, tilapia fillets are baked in a light coconut milk and topped with spinach and fresh parsley. Cook Time: 20 minutes
