    I do! But... I try to eat only wild caught fish and it is challenging to find Tilapia that is wild caught very many places.

    Oh, my goodness! Yes. My wife makes a cornmeal breading and then fries up the filets and it tastes awesome!

    I'm not the biggest fish fan in the world; I like cod, smelt, salmon, and trout, but Tilapia is simply amazing.

    I was very surprised to find out that it's not only a Filipino fish, but it is found in other parts of the world--even in the Middle East. Apparently this tasty fish is found even in the Sea of Galilee.

    Tilapia is the Tebow of fish. :^P

    I love tilapia.  It is the reason I started eating fish again (aside from fishsticks...can't avoid them with kids.)

    No, it is tasteless, except for the flavours you put in, and it it's full of bones.  Not worth the bother.

    Yes I do. In fact, I have a tilapia farm here in Brazil. We raise the Nile tilapia and sell locally to grocery stores, and restaurants.

    I normally fry it but it is popular here to BBQ by splitting it open, and using rock salt and olive oil. The locals leave the scales on when they BBQ to seal in the moisture.

    Because the temperature here is 86° year round we use the BBQ several times a week.

    Great question.

    Love it so much.  I love it fried, grilled, steamed.  It's one of the few types of fish that i eat.

    Love it!  It's so versatile as it picks up just about any flavor you add to it as its own flavor is so mild.

    It's also the only fish my kids will eat, so bonus points there!

    Funny you should ask this question.  I went to the local market were this product is sold, and I asked did it have bones. the customer service person said no. This was perfect for me I hate bones in fish. I went home and heated up the cast iron skillet and added some butter and olive oil and seasoned my Tilapia with garlic powdered black and red pepper,Kosher salt and dredged it in flour. placed in in the butter and olive oil and waited for that golden brown color telling me its done. The answer to you question is a resounding Yes.

    I love it and actually had it stewed for dinner last night. My only wish was that it was not farm raised. I prefer wild caught fish.

    Funny you should ask this question today.  I just opened my email and found a recipe from a food site I follow that uses one of my favorite flavors: raspberry, as a sauce for tilapia.  I was intrigued and saved the recipe.

    Yes, I find tilapia to be a versatile fish with a capacity to entice even the most stubborn nonfish consumers.

    I love it because it is so easy to cook and because it has very mild flavors, you can pair it with just about anything!

    I'm not a big fan, but I eat it once in a while. My kids won't even go near it, although they like salmon, flounder, and mahi mahi.

    It's the best tasting fish out there, especially when it's cooked over a wood fire.

    No, it tastes bland and flat to me. Even spiced up with salsa or Cajun styles don't appeal.  Plus, the color looks dingy.
