We started eating fish a lot more when we moved to Hawaii a little over three years ago. Before that, the extent of my fish eating repertoire was mostly tuna salad and the occasional shrimp dish, which I usually preferred deep fried! Since then, I’ve gotten to try so many tasty and delicious kinds of fish, and I’m proud to say that I even enjoy “poke,” a raw fish salad that’s hugely popular here in Hawaii!
Now that I’ve grown to love fish so much, it’s become a frequent staple on our dinner table. My kids even enjoy it, and that makes dinner time a lot easier and less stressful when they’re on board with what we’re eating. One of my favorite types of fish to prepare is tilapia thanks to its mild flavor, and the fact that it lends itself well to different toppings and flavors.
As much as I enjoy fish, though, sometimes it’s not always so simple to prepare. You have to make sure it’s cooked just right (no over or undercooked fish, please!) and if you buy it fresh, it needs to be cooked soon after buying or else it will spoil.
After dealing with these kinds of issues before and feeling discouraged, I was really excited to discover the new Bumble Bee SuperFresh® line of frozen fish! It’s a complete line of naturally-seasoned, restaurant quality, “fish-forward” prepared seafood solutions for the home. It really raises the bar for what seafood lovers can expect from frozen food! They have all different kinds of fish to choose from including salmon, ahi tuna, and my personal favorite, tilapia.
Seriously y’all, never has it been so easy to enjoy a delicious, premium tilapia fillet! This Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia is made with ground black pepper, fresh garlic, sea salt, and extra virgin olive oil—making every flaky bite fantastic. I made it into bruschetta tilapia by adding my favorite bruschetta on top along with a balsamic glaze, and it made for a healthy and super yummy dinner.
One of the things I like best about the Bumble Bee SuperFresh® seafood is that it’s no mess, and no fuss. Their premium Salmon and Tilapia come with their own parchment paper baking pouches and go from freezer to table in under 25 minutes. They’re high in protein, and seasoned with pure and simple ingredients that let the fish shine through. That’s one of the things I loved most about this dish; simple, yet versatile and delicious flavors.
You can find Bumble Bee SuperFresh® in the frozen seafood section, typically near the seafood counter, at your local grocery store. Click here to find what stores carry it in your area.
Hope you enjoy this Bruschetta Tilapia, y’all!

Put on toasted texas toast then mashed potatoes topped with the tender flavorful roast. Open face one full meal deal. Stretches the family budget without compromising taste and so easy. Great recipe. Thanks. I make poor boy steaks (thin burger patties dipped in egg wash and ruched butter round crackers. Stretches the meat budget & great wi th h mashed potatoes & gravy, like cheap chicken fried steak & oh so good. Another special is mystery stew. It’s a spoon or two of whatever leftovers from the week. All kinds of vegies, meats. Etc. Miced with a c as n of tomato sauce & that magic rotel. Add broth to thin as desired.) Essentially I ziplock any little leftovers and make a great stew for pennies & leftovers . Food to precious to waste a bite these days and everyone asks for it. Great fo when that cold season needs a good warm stew. Throw together in the crockpot and magic happens. I get a extra pride knowing that little leftover I zip locked & froze is always there for a virtually free supper. You just can’t buy soup like that ready made. Experiment but just start keeping the spoon of this & that if feel like needs more a can of mixed veggies works beautifully. We had a large family that no matter the budget our dinner table was blessed with plenty of food. I’m so thankful for recipes of leftovers. Christmas dinner becomes many versions of turkey & dumplings, Turkey sandwiches, turkey salads, ( chef type usually) , turkey spinach pizza, turkey dips, & on & on. My kids never even thought about how good it was for them because it was so good. So freeze any leftovers & mark for mystery stew. I cube meats before I freeze so it’s a dump and done when I make it. Catch a cold. In goes some stew. Any meats. G beef, ham, chops, chicken. Steak, roast, even fish. Sometimes add noodles or rice. Just go for it. Nothing to lose except the scraps. Lol😋
I am trying this with fresh tilapia fish.
My own Balsamic Glaze recipe I use I think has some sugar into it, not sure if other ingredients due to having to find my recipe now.
Would the sugar in the Balsamic Glaze change the it so It doesn’t go the the Bruschetta in this recipe. I do love balsamic glaze on many items. I am looking forward to making this fish dish but not sure what to do now. Making this tonight. I might half the sugar in my glaze recipe that I love. If I get a chance I will post my comments.
I make bruschetta all the time in the summer but never thought to put it on fish. Such a great idea.
This is such a light and fresh summer dinner!
I haven’t tried Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia – and seeing I’m drooling over here, I need to me hands on some pronto! That accompanying bruschetta makes this look irresistible!
I LOVE the look of this! It looks delicious and so many amazing flavours together; I’m obsessed with balsamic anything, so this is right up my street!
I had no idea such a convenient option was available! That would make dinner much easier, and I love the topping you added. Balsamic glaze is my fave.
This is a BumbleBee Product?? I had no idea these even existed. You’ve made a beautiful dish!
This looks delicious! Thank you for sharing!
WOW! Looks so decadent and delicious! Such a great idea for hosting!
Love bruschetta and this looks like a super healthy alternative to bread!
What a gorgeous fresh and tasty looking dinner – it looks nice and easy to make too which is great for busy weeknights!
Haha so how much did you get paid to advertise bumble bee?? You mentioned it like 2-3 times a paragraph. Thanks for posting the recipe going to try it tonight although with frozen tilapia from Sams Club
Tilapia is on our weekly rotation but this rendition is new to me so I have to try it out..
According to the BumbleBee web site this product isn’t available locally but, I always have frozen tilapia on hand so, I will make it work..
Thank you… :O)
It should work just fine with the frozen tilapia you have, Ross. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Tilapia is one fish that my family will actually eat so this will be a nice addition to my recipe box! We don’t eat a ton of seafood since we don’t live on the coast but If we lived somewhere like Hawaii we totally would. We didn’t try poke last time we were there but it’s on my to try list next time we visit!
Those Bumble Bee fish packets are some of my favorites! They make it so easy to cook a fast dinner.
I haven’t seen these in the stores yet around here, but I am definitely looking for them this week! 🙂 We do not eat much seafood in our home- mainly because we are landlocked here in WV, lol. But this Bumble Bee SuperFresh seafood looks like the perfect solution for us! 🙂
I never want to eat tilapia any other way! Delish!
I cannot wait to try this! Bruschetta is the best!
What a wonderful way to flavor Talapia
Ashlyn I love this recipe so much! I cant wait to dig in
