Menu Ideas: Tilapia who?
(NC) - Tilapia has premium billing in select restaurants - and now this mild and flaky white fish has arrived in supermarkets too.
Last year, seafood sales in the U.S.A. show that freshwater tilapia is among the top 10 - with its popularity owing to more than just a superior taste.
If you're looking to increase your weekly consumption of fish, do take a look in the freezer section of the supermarket for two, very quick ways to serve these new, flaky white fillets.
"Our tilapia is farmed, inspected, and hand-picked in carefully controlled habitats to ensure it is top quality, free of antibiotics, and safe from environmental factors. Then we coat it in a crunchy breading, or prepare it with a robust roasted garlic sauce. All of this is prepared with zero trans fat before it is quick-frozen to retain freshness."
Canada's Food Guide recommends at least two, 75-gram servings of fish each week with a footnote that a single 150-gram serving of fish or seafood provides adults with 50 to 60 percent of their daily protein needs.
Preparation time: 25 minutes - Total time: 30 minutes
Bake fillets according to the package. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and set aside in the refrigerator. Top baked fillets with salsa and serve immediately.
