  • I'm not a fish eater at all. Can't stand it. But I will eat tilapia. It doesn't have a super fishy taste or smell to it. I also eat tuna.

  • Yes, it's a very mild fish.

  • It's the only fish I can tolerate, so it's the only fish we eat. I make it about once every month or so because my 8 year old adores fish. It's good, if you like fish.

  • It's okay for a mild fish.. sometimes it tastes like dirt. I've cooked it with garlic salt and lemon juice in the oven, it came out pretty good.

  • I am NOT a big fan of fish- but can eat tilapia. Costco carries some that is already seasoned and ready to go and it's actually really good.

  • When cooking it, try not to overcook. When it is flaky that's when it's done. Since it is a very low fat fish it tends to cook faster and ends up dry if it's overcooked.
    I like to marinate mine in a Hawaiian marinade and serve with sauteed veggies and rice.

  • its okay...kinda the chicken breast of fish if that makes sense. its not super fishy like catfish, but its not as flavorful as salmon or halibut (which cost more). i really like fish but tilapia is nothing special.

  • yes my mom has made it a few times and I don't mind it, we're not big fish eaters either. Used to eat fresh fish that we actually caught when I was little but haven't done that in AGES! The only fish I absolutely will not eat is Salmon, ugh i just can't stand the taste :P
