Please help me fu/ck/s, I need your assistance.
I have some tilapia, a whole white onion, fresh garlic, butter, an assortment of other spices as well but I don't know how I should make my fish? I have access to a stove and an oven as well.
tilapia is really dirty flavored usually, so overspicing it is a great option. my bf and i eat a lot of cheap fish so i usually make battered and fried ones, or i simply press panko/seasoned breadcrumbs into it and fry it on high
i'd say make little fried fish and then i do sandwiches with coleslaw, or fish tacos
If you can get a tomato, some cilantro and lemon make it vera cruz style. Put a slice of the tomato onion and lemon on the fish with some cilantro and some salt and pepper and wrap it in tin foil and put it in the oven.
Tilapia is like the cod of seafood.
It shouldn't taste muddy if it's farmed properly (like catfish), but it's pretty bland. Fish tacos sound good.
If you don't want to batter and deep fry, then season heavily (blackening spices) and pan fry, serve on salad.
Or crust with herbs and spices, panko, fried.
Yeah but have you tried AquAdvantage salmon? It grows faster then normal salmon, sure it's actually more expensive to license it and farm it, but you wouldn't be able to tell from the label or price at your supermarket. I wonder how they achieve that?
Cod means different things in different countries, friend.
Coat in olive oil and place in a hot, oven safe pan for a few minutes. Squeeze lemon over, and sprinkle with old bay seasoning. Toss that shit into the oven at 350 for a couple minutes, broil to finish (watch it closely or it'll burn). Serve with tartar sauce. Under 15 minutes for a pretty delicious piece of fish (or at least as much so as tilapia will ever be). Consider sautéed asparagus on the side.
Tilapia tends to taste pretty muddy, so I'd blacken it, or, if you happen to have some canned chipotle peppers, chop them up real fine and mix that with some grated garlic, add in lemon juice, olive oil, salt and paprika. Then broil that and make fish tacos or just serve it with some Mexican rice and salsa.
I've never had "muddy" tilapia; it varies from mild to bland. This is just my experience. I usually get it from the local jap grocer, but I've also had it "fresh" and frozen from the supermarket. Never a problem.
Your mileage may vary. There's always someone crying "mud" when it's mentioned, though, so my experience is presented as a counterpoint.
