Healthy Tilapia Recipes

Due to the heart-healthy benefits, low cost, and mild flavor, more and more people are eating Tilapia than ever before!

I know that we do a good job of trying to work on eating fish more at our house, but I think that we could do it even more!

The best part about cooking fish is that it’s really not that hard to do! People tend to shy away from eating fish because they think it’s hard to cook – but that’s not the case. I think that once you cook up one or two of these recipes, you’re going to see just what I mean!

Is tilapia an unhealthy fish?

Not at all! Like I tell my boys, everything in moderation is key. Tilapia is low in fat and calories and high in protein and is a great way to give yourself a healthy meal to fuel your energy and body for the day.

How do you store leftover fish?

It’s really important that you store leftover fish in an airtight container and keep it stored in the fridge. The fish will release an order – so the lid is a must!

To reheat leftovers, you can warm them up slowly in the oven or use the microwave for a quick burst of heat.

How do I know if fish is overcooked?

If fish has a rubbery texture, you know that it’s been cooked too long. Properly cooked fish should be tender and flaky, not tough.
