Tips & Notes
Your delicious fish dish starts with a smart purchase. U.S. farmed tilapia, with its mild flavor, can be a great choice from the fresh fish counter, if it is actually fresh.
How can you tell the difference between fresh from the water and several days out? First, notice the aroma, it should remind you of the sea. If it smells fishy or musky, it’s likely an older catch, so you’ll want to avoid those fillets.
Also, tilapia tends to absorb the taste of the water it sits in; so if you are buying fillets, make sure they are not sitting in excess liquid or it could mean off-flavors.
Finally, even though fish can be refrigerated for up to two days, try to buy it as close to the time you wish to cook it as possible.
Enhance tilapia’s flavor with a light, fresh sauce. Lighter than traditional mayonnaise-based tartar sauces, this sauce uses thick Greek yogurt to give a creamy quality with only a fraction of the calories or fat. A little tartness from the lemon juice and zip from the mustard enhance the mild yogurt taste.
For an attractive, nutritious side dish, steam any combination of colorful vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. Add lightly seasoned brown rice for a complete, delicious and healthful meal.
