Anyone have suggestions for something to mix with a bland protein drink? It's really sweet and disgusting. I wonder if coffee would make it taste like better. I've considered yogurt but neither sounds appealing. I can't think of a thing.

That sounds good Randall. I first learned about tilapia from my wife 10 years ago. Luo people are the "fisher" people and live by rivers in Africa. She said it was her favorite fish.

Later on she got more into salmon but I would rather have the tilapia. No fish now. We've lived apart almost a year.

I marinated my tilapia in olive oil, lemon juice, seasonings. Then added corn meal to coat. Even then, it didn't have a whole lot of flavor. I grilled it over hot wood stove coals which sort of smoked it. I wound up fixing hashed browns and asparagus to go with it. Spinach salad and fruit. No dessert--yest. was my "sugar free" day.

Tilapia, orange roughy, cod, sole, halibut, shellfish, its all good. Salmon hates me now so I have to go with the less rich types.

I don't eat Talapia anymore, because I can't taste mild flavors at my age.

The 'negative comments" I referenced were written before I saw your post Michael. 

Comment by Pat on February 17, 2015 at 4:59pm

Ohh, I like halibut, salmon, haddock, cod, and most shellfish (I'll pass on oysters). Tilapia seems to be get a bad rap as a commercially raised fish that is bland and has no flavor. While it is mild, I think it has decent flavor, notwithstanding the negative comments I've read. I don't think it has to be marinated. I just do it to add certain flavors to the dish.

Tilapia is pretty bland. I would skillet fry it and use pepper or seasoning salt to taste. Another way would be to take a bite at mealtime and then add the seasoning. You would know more of what you wanted on it then.

Does tilapia need to be marinated?  I mean, does it taste too fishy without added flavors?  I've never tried it...IMO nothing could beat my mother's broiled halibut with a little sliced onion and paprika.  A very mild and juicy fish....and it has become too expensive (and hard to find) for mere mortals anymore.

Everything seems to be tilapia and orange roughy anymore, and neither sounds particularly appealing.

I used to like fresh salmon, grilled over hickory chips, but my last experience with that caused a major gout attack.

Hey, I like tilapia. That's my 'go to' fish for making fish tacos. Marinated and grilled tilapia, served on corn tortillas with a little shredded cabbage, pickeled onion, queso fresco, and salsa roja.
