I cook Tilapia in the oven or on a piece of aluminum foil on the grill at least once a week.
Careful eating too much fish though, otherwise you will spit fish oil out your pooper non-stop!

2nd vote for tilapia. it's easy to cook and you can do a lot with it. my favorite fish is halibut (steaks) though. just baste with a mix of lemon juice and melted butter and throw it on the grill.

Another vote for tilapia... I buy the frozen filets... just throw them in a glass dish in the oven for 12 minutes and you're good to go. They cook really fast and you don't have to thaw them ahead of time.

Walmart sells a box of them for really cheap.

I usually have them with some rice, veggies & hot sauce.

I eat a lot of Salmon and Tilapia. Normally just sprinkle a little curry powder or garlic powder on them, then toss them in a pan with a teaspoon of olive oil until it's white all the way through. Cooks real fast, real easy.

Tilapia is where it's at. What I do is marinate them with lime, garlic, salt, and pepper then bake them 10 - 15 min till fish starts flaking. Comes out great and is quick and easy.

I buy those tilapia fillets and just take it out of the wrapper and eat it raw.

I love Trout. Pan fry on cast iron sprayed with Pam. I usually put some blackening seasoning on it like Zaterans. I love me some Trout..

fish does really well with pouch cooking and it's easy to do.

make a pouch out of parchment paper (not wax). either fold and staple up the sides or tie into a bag. just allow a small opening on the highest side as a vent cause it's going to steam.

add some frozen veggies, season very well. it needs a bit of liquid (wine, saki, mirin, oil, maybe some butter, even water... )

throw it in the oven at 425* for like 15 minutes and you should have some very flakey fish and seasoned veggies as a result.

Walmart here sells a 2lb bag of Tilapia that are individually vac packed. It's really convenient.

I usually thaw two packs out and toss them on the george foreman if I'm in a hurry. sprinkle a little bit of pepper or some season salt, and they are awesome. They cook in like 2 minutes, literally.

I sometimes add a slice of cheese to the top and toss them in a pair of whole weat slices and make a good fish sandwich...or I'll grab some yellow corn tortillas, cabbage, pico, and make some fish tacos. They are really easy, not bad for you at all, and taste great.

Fish. It's what's for dinner!
