Baked Citrus Tilapia Recipe

Unfortunately, fish is a not very popular source of protein in the fitness community… just because most people find fish boring and not very good tasting…

Well friends, that’s all about to change with this delicious Tilapia recipe :)

For those who are not familiar with Tilapia, here is a brief description of that extraordinary fish:

Tilapia is a mild tasting freshwater fish with firm, white flesh. It is very high in protein and very low in fat.

Because the majority of the tilapia found in your local fish market are farm raised, it is relatively inexpensive. Versatile and adaptable to many cuisines, recipes and cooking styles, tilapia has become a favorite in many home kitchens and with professional chefs.

Adaptable and affordable, tilapia is often substituted for more expensive fish like sole and flounder. Tilapia does not have a distinctive taste of its own, so it is a perfect fish to use in recipes that use marinades.

Here is the recipe! citrustilapia
