What is Tilapia fish?
Tilapia fish is a kind of fish that is high in protein levels. It is found in freshwater that is categorized with firm white flesh. It is mainly found in the supermarkets filleted but can be found whole. ( source: ask.com )
Tilapia fish is perfect for steaming, grilling, baking and frying because of their firm white flesh. I grew up eating tilapia everyday of my life, Its one of my favorite fish. Today, I'm so inspired to share my favorite way to cooked this tilapia fish, I just like how, the sweetness of the vegetables pair with savory fish, It just so perfect meal itself, As you know ME! I'd like everything paired with white rice..hehe wink:)
You can totally rock this recipe by using your own twist, like combining your own favorite vegetables and use boneless skinless fillet waiting for you at the supermarkets. I simply love everything seafood and its fun cooking them:) C'mon lets start cooking..wink!

  9. Of all the fishes, Tilapia is my favorite. I used to eat just bangus and tilapia before. Then I have learned to eat galunggoy and tamban, then maya-maya and so on. Hehe. But tilapia is my favorite.

  11. Hi Melgie,

    I used to eat Tilapia when I was growing up in Sinagpore but don't seem to see the shops selling these fishes in Australia. Your fried Tilapia looks very homey and wonderful. It reminds me a lot of home...
