Reel In a Winner for Dinner

“Fast, easy and delicious yet impressive enough to make for company.” “Make this again!” My husband and I keep a journal of sorts within our collections of recipes. Whether it’s in a cookbook or the three-ringed binder that holds recipes we’ve cherry-picked from magazines, newspapers and online, we mark up our recipes with edits, serving suggestions and a taste-related quote from someone at the table.

Looking over our fish recipes, I’ve discovered a common thread; when it comes to pleasing the whole family (and friends) with a seafood dish, tilapia is a top choice at my house. Mild in flavor, delicate and sweet, it’s delicious pan-fried, broiled, baked, poached or grilled. There’s nearly no wrong way to prepare tilapia! As an extra bonus, it’s a good source of B vitamins, antioxidants, calcium, iron, potassium and phosphorous too. Plus, all of the farmed tilapia sold at Whole Foods Market® meets our industry-leading Quality Standards for Aquaculture and is available year-round, so there’s no wrong time to prepare it either. Look for it fresh or vacuum-packed and frozen for convenience (think fuss-free fish dinner in a flash).
