Frozen Tortilla Crusted Tilapia from Costco
Plate of cooked Tortilla Crusted Tilapia from Costco

This tortilla crusted tilapia from Costco has become one of our quick, go-to meals when we can't figure out what to eat. We cook it using the conventional oven instructions. The instructions say to cook them at 425 degrees F for 10-13 minutes, but we usually cook it for 14 or 15 minutes so the crust is crispy and the fish never gets mushy. One thing that makes this different than other frozen breaded/crusted fishes I've had is that only one side is crusted. It makes it easier to cook because there's no flipping midway.

The tilapia comes out flaky on the inside and crunchy on the outside. It has a nice and savory, well-seasoned Mexican food taste to it, and it has a little bit of spice, as well. Sometimes I wrap one in a soft flour tortilla and eat it as a fish taco -- and it tastes great that way, too. I really enjoy the taste of these, and I'm reminded how delicious they are every time I have one!

    • Conchi

  • Buttockss

    Warning! Cut before eating. Once i thawed one fish, then cooked, took one bite only to find it was breaded half rat with hair balls in my mouth.

    Love, Love, Love it….
    Always got to go out of my way and make a special trip to Costco every couple of weeks to stock up on this.
    So easy and convenient… taste snacking adds well.
    Usually I eat it over salad greens out in a tortilla with some shredded cabbage.
    Anyhow, I highly recommend it.

  • Karen Kiefer

    Can this be cooked in an air fryer?

    • AddieB

      Yep, sure can.

  • Grooms

    These are the bomb and I use to have at least 1 a week until Costco stopped selling them. Called the company and they said many many people have called and complained they can’t get these anymore. COSTCO….BRING THEM BACK!!!!!

    • Tess

      Agreed…. I was able to get these again just last week in San Diego after months of it being gone. Hope they are back where you are too!

      • Mandee

        I went to Costco in Simi valley today and they are BACK!! I picked up two boxes

    • Christopher M. Jett

      Try Target…
      I’ve seen them there once in awhile…
      Or, I think you might be able to able to order them online…

  • Linda

    Is this tortilla crusted tilapia finally available again at the Costa Mesa/Santa Ana, California stores?????

    • Tobie Anthony Cardino

      They aren’t online or at the Irvine location. Sad! I love these!!

  • Jim

    Been a fish taco guy for many years. When these come out of the oven they take me right back to the waterfront in Ensenada, Mexico, where fish tacos were 3 for a dollar. Great combination of flavors… corn tortilla – yes! – squeeze of lime – yes! – you can add a little white sauce or mayo if you like, but just right out of the oven, these are tasty!

    • M. Wells

      I had never eaten fish tacos. And ever since I got a sample at Costco I can’t imagine living without it. Needless to say we love it. Slice it up , put it on a corner tortilla, a squeeze of lime and some pico de Gallo. It is sooo good and a re as lot quick meal. In fact that’s what we just had for dinner.

  • LWar

    I noticed there was not a reply to the one and only question on here… I myself would like to know the origin of your Tilapia also.. ??

    • GrubPug

      According to the company’s website, the tilapia is farmed in Indonesia and China.

  • Mike Robinson

    What is this tilapia’s source of origin?

    • AddieB

      My box says USA, specifically NH.
