Once every couple of months I head to Dekalb Farmer’s Market and stock up on their fresh seafood. Having grown up in New England, there are very few varieties of seafood that I don’t like. I have not been impressed with the seafood selection at most of my local grocery stores so when I go to the farmer’s market I by tons and put it in the freezer. This particular market has incredibly fresh fish and many varieties are still swimming around in tanks! Tilapia is a firm white fish with a very mild flavor. It is the perfect fish to use when you want to highlight the other flavors in the meal and don’t want your dish turning out too ‘fishy’. Thankfully, tilapia is also a relatively inexpensive fish so we use it fairly often. If you are trying to reduce your carbon footprint and want to buy ‘greener’ food choices, tilapia that is farm raised in the US is one of the better seafood choices you can make. Check out the Monteray Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch for more sustainable seafood choices. This tilapia recipe is really very simple to make and served with a baked potato or rice you have a complete meal with very little work.
