Best to Buy

Look for tilapia that smells fresh like the ocean and has clear eyes, clean gills, and moist, shiny, tightly adhering scales.

Prep & Store

Remove packaging, rinse fish under cold water, and pat dry. Refrigerate covered with crushed ice and cling wrap for up to two days.

Tasty Tip

When marinating tilapia, be sure to do so for only a short time or the fish's delicate structure will start to break down.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Brush fillets with olive oil and season. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Baste pan juices over fillets before serving.
