What does Tilapia Taste Like?

Tilapia is a very mild and flakey white fish. It doesn’t have a fishy taste or odor at all. I love that it has such a mild taste that lends itself to virtually  any flavor combination. I LOVE Parmesan Crusted Tilapia with Lemon Pepper. So delicious!

What are the health benefits of Tilapia?

Tilapia has many beneficial qualities, such as nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, including significant amounts of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, vitamin B12, niacin, and vitamin B6. Well, wow! Don’t mind if I do.

How long will this Tilapia Recipe keep in the fridge/freezer and how do  you know if Tilapia has gone bad?

This Lemon Pepper Tilapia Recipe should stay fresh in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months. You can tell that Tilapia has gone bad if it develops a fishy odor/sour smell or has a dull color/slimy texture. Gross…but good information to know!
