We love tilapia at our home. My husband is fromn the south so he love grits with fried tilapia. I must admit, I don't like grits, but I enjoy that meal. The great thing about this fish is that you can prepare so many different ways and it doesnt dry out easily...its great for griiling in foil.

I buy parmesean crusted tilapia from Gordon's Food Service (GFS) and cook it in the Flavor-Wave. I top it will a little shredded cheese and some salsa. I think it's very good although I don't like many kinds of fish.

lol... I had just read the question and was going to recommend Spark's recipes broiled parmesan tilapia. I LOVE IT! Quick and easy to make and so cheesy. I actually substituted parmesan for light feta and it turned out amazing. I use about 1/4 of the garlic recommended in the recipe though, too garlicy for me.

love it... I just spray my pan with a nonstick spray and add the tilapia with some spices of choice depending on mood and add a bunch of veggies, like baby carrots, shredded cabbage, mushrooms, and maybe some fresh spinach cover and cook for like five minutes and its done. fish is flaky and veggies a bit crisp...

Thanks for the tilapia source post. I knew some of it was bad but I was told not to use farm raised at all and I have not been able to find that. It is good to know I can use US farm raised.

I love it. I usually bake it in a very small amt of butter and sprinkle a bread crumb/parm cheese mix on top...

A note on Tilapia - if you are choosing your tilapia make sure to get wild tilapia or US Farm Raised if you can. Asian Farm raised tilapia tends to be fed a "fish meal" that is basically ground up bycatch that is very high in heavy metals and all the other nasty stuff that you don't want to be eating.

when you cook your fish (I prefer grilling it) try eatting it with pineapple (or mango) salsa! It's easy to make, and the longer you let the salsa sit before you eat it, the better (i'd say like a day). Just chop up pineapple (or mango), diced jalapenos, chop red onion, a little bit of lime juice, some cilantro, and salt n pepper to taste. It's super amazing AND your getting your fruit too ;) I'd only recommend this for white fish though.

Not really, I also think it's a bit bland. I prefer salmon.

I make a meal out of it with cabbage & veggies - the tilapia is still a bit bland, but eating it with cabbage, I don't mind. It's a 1 pan meal:

- Sautee some onion & garlic in a pan,
- to the same pan, add shredded cabbage, cut up carrots, a few other veggies, and put the lid on for 10 minutes or so until veggies are soft to your liking.
- put a piece of tilapia on top of the cabbage and put the lid back on.

The tilapia us usually done in 2 or 3 minutes, depending on the thickness. I just squeeze a little lemon, salt & pepper on the fish, and have it with a big side of veggies.

I agree with the blandness. It does need spices.

I need my fish to be mild tasting (not fishy). I can always add seasonings.

tilapia is very bland to me. i have to add A LOT of seasoning to get it to have any taste. i might check out this recipe though, as it is a pretty cheap fish.

I'm not much of a fish person, either. But I do like tilapia, and I especially like halibut (very mild). Yum! Nice broiled.

I WANT to like talapia...I haven't found a "healthy" way to fix it that also makes it tasty. I am coming to the realization that I may not be a fish person!

Tilapia is good but I have been eating Swai filets which is about 2-3 dollars cheaper and tastes just as good. Try it if it is available.

I eat talapia now and then, it's not my favourite, because like you, I also think it has a muddy taste.

Tilapia has a little funky taste that I don't like. It tastes a bit like mud to me. I eat it, but it is not my favorite.
