FISH- 7-9 oz. TILAPIA FILLET (10 lbs.) BULKRegular price $42.50
Freshly frozen (7-9 oz) per Tilapia fillet
Tilapia fish has a sweet, mild taste with lean flesh and a medium-firm, flaky texture. Raw flesh is white or pinkish-white sometimes with a darker muscle layer on the skin side of the fillets. The flesh cooks up to a white color. Many compare the mild taste of tilapia to that of another farm-raised success story, catfish. Aqua-cultured Tilapia tend to have a better flavor than wild Tilapia because Tilapia taste like their environment and wild fish feed on algae.

Tilapia is highly versatile, but whatever cooking method you choose, stick with a subtle sauce to help avoid overpowering tilapia’s delicate flavor.

- Do not remove the fish from the vacuum pack, this will help preserve the flavor when defrosting in cold water.
- Place the fish in a shallow dish or bowl submerged in cold water. Do not use warm or hot water, this will change the texture of the fish and can create food safety hazard.
- You can leave the water running with a tiny bit of narrow stream of water running into the bowl or dish. Or you can change water out every 20 minutes until completely defrosted.
- Remove fish from package, rinse with water, and pat dry with paper towel. Use the thawed fish immediately to ensure best results!
