Complete newb when it comes to cooking. I've finally decided I'm going to learn how to cook frozen tilapia in the oven. Can I just thaw it in the microwave, and then put some ready made seasoning on it, and then place it on a cooking tray, and then cook it in the oven? is it really that simple?
what setting, temperature, and for how long should i keep it in the oven for? (6 oz of Tilapia fillets)

There are lots of recipes if you use google.
A very simple technique I use is to buy some canned, no-salt added diced tomatoes and dump a can or two into a glass dish and add fish and bake. You can tinker around and use various other types of diced tomatoes (such as garlic, orgeano, etc).
Here is a pic of when I used this technique for salmon.

Just use a 2 second spray of PAM, that's what I do if I'm trying to limit my daily fat intake for a given day.
I few seconds of PAM spray is the equivalent to 1g or 2g of fat, which is nothing really.
This way, you can still prepare the dish however you'd like, using a variety of different favours.
White fish is an excellent dish to add tons of flavour to. Let your imagination go.Livestrong!

I'd recommend doing a sort of poaching pouch method. Basically, you make a pouch using aluminum foil with the fish in it. I personally add a small amount of olive oil with lemon juice and brown mustard (all mixed together before adding). Also some veggies on top.

I love to cook fish. I thaw mine in warm water as well but I don't like to lose any of the great oils from the fish into the water. So what I do is get a plastic sandwich bag and put some lemon and/or orange juice (very little is needed) into the bag along with the frozen filet, suck all the air out of the bag, then place the bag into some warm water. I will either use hot water and let the bag sit for about 90 minutes, or I will just use room temp water and put it in the fridge to thaw overnight.
As for baking I usually do around 325F and just check it periodically. I wrap it foil but I put mandarin orange slices or lemon slices on the bottom and top of the filet and wrap the whole thing. The slices keep any of the fish from sticking to the foil, and adds to the flavor. Feel free to add spices as well.
