It’s a versatile fish; like flounder, you can bake, broil, steam, sauté and grill. The flesh is low-fat, with a mild and slightly sweet flavor. Tilapia rates high on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program because it is farm-riased in insland re-circulating systems that have little impact on the environment. They are fed inexpensive vegetable-based foods, which make them a great source of eco-friendly protein.
The article includes three different recipes, (Baked Tilapia with Fresh Herbs, Manhattan Fish Chowder, and Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia with Salsa.) All the recipes look easy and delicious; why not try Tilapia this week?
