IS FRESH OR FROZEN TILAPIA BEST?

In general, if you have access to fish that has been impertinently caught, cleaned, and put up for sale within about 48 hours, then that ’ s your absolute best bet for choice. other than that, the likelihood is that any fish you buy has been frozen at some distributor point in order to keep it fresh for tape drive .
Frozen fish is besides processed and freeze quickly after the get. So you can feel convinced that the fish in the deep-freeze case is, in most cases, barely arsenic good as the fish at the counter, and possibly even better !

HOW LONG TO BAKE TILAPIA

If you haven ’ thyroxine baked tilapia before you may be wondering how to do it by rights. here are a few quick tips for the best bake tilapia :

  • Like most fish fillets, tilapia cooks up pretty quickly! You’ll want to check on it as soon as it’s been in the oven for 10 minutes, or even sooner if your oven runs hot.
  • The fillets are done when they flake easily with a fork (but aren’t dry).
  • If you’re using a meat thermometer, insert it sideways into the thickest part of the fillet. The temperature should be 145°F.

  • A Gift of Goodness: You can also get your veggies and starch all baked up at once with these lovely parchment packages: try my Spring Vegetables and Potatoes Baked in Parchment. Feel free to substitute whatever veggies are freshest in your area.
  • Sweets to the Sweet: For a sweet follow-up, try serving some Creamy Keto Chocolate Mousse or a plate of My Family’s Traditional Baklava. So amazing!

HOW TO STORE AND REHEAT LEFTOVERS

  • To refrigerate, store cooled leftover fillets in an airtight container. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To freeze, place leftover fillets in a single layer on a baking sheet or platter. Freeze until frozen solid. Then transfer the frozen fillets into freezer bags and push out as much air as possible before sealing. The fillets will keep in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
  • To reheat, first thaw the fish (if frozen). Then place the fillets at room temperature while the oven preheats to 350°F. Arrange the fillets in a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until heated through. The fish’s texture may be less moist after storing and reheating.
