Your very right " The Rope " fresh grated Parmesan is as different as day and night from the pre grated store bought. And on this baked tilapia it is so wonderful

Wonderful recipe, once again this is on the list. One word about parm cheese I learned from my italian friend - the reason pre-grated parm cheese is so strong is that the manufacturers grate the rind in along with the meat. If you don't love parm, trying the fresh may make you change your mind.

You want tilapia that have eyes that are full and not cloudy. The scales should be intact. Those are the ways to tell if its fresh or has been fresh frozen.

This is a great series on tilapia and how to cook it, thanks! Is there a way to tell by looking at the fish in the market how fresh it really is? I am familiar with shopping for salmon and most of the stuff sold here in the stores is old. Just wondering if you have any tips to get the freshest since it is all under shrink wrap here!

Looks similar to the Kob or Kabeljou fish we catch on our coastline, by the rounded tail.Gonna give it a try.Please add the rough estimate of weight for the fish to cook with the mixture or can you cook any weight for 30 - 35 minutes. Great recipe. Thanks for the hub.Rated up.
