Tasty Tilapia Recipes

Looking to add more seafood to your diet? Tilapia is a light, easy to prepare fish that the whole family will enjoy. Tilapia’s mild flavor means it can take on a variety of preparations so you’ll never get bored with the “same old” dish.

Tilapia also cooks quickly, so it’s a great option for weeknight dinners. Plus, it’s easily available in stores, both fresh at the seafood counter, vacuum-packed in individual portions or sold in family packs to feed everyone. If buying fresh, be sure to use it the same day or the next day. Thaw frozen tilapia filets in the refrigerator overnight, and they will be ready to cook when you get home from work!

Tilapia pairs well with all sorts of vegetables, so use this as an opportunity to try some new sides, too. Check out some of our favorite kale recipes, or stick with the family-favorite broccoli. Either way you’ll have a winning complete winning meal!
