    I've been introducing a lot more fish other than tuna fish and sushi to my diet, I have been eating 2-3 tilapia filets per day that I buy fresh/frozen. I have been thawing them for an hour and then put them on a pan over olive oil.

    they seem to be breaking up a lot and just getting onto my plate looking like shit, they taste fine, but i was wondering if anyone had recipes for this.

    Also bought Orange Roughie (sp?) which I love in the same fashion but havent cooked it yet.

    too expensive

    you can try just some of that non-stick cooking spray, also make sure you have a non-stick pan

    I cook it alot.

    I just throw old bay on it and cook in olive oil.
    I have also used the a few of the zero calorie Mrs. Dash on it, but prefer old bay.

    i ball out lately when it comes to my food. i used to go out on weekends and blow 500+ dollars to party and have stopped doing that. im also natural right now and want to remain this way for a while so im pretty much fueling my body with the best since i cut back costs with those other two.

    been cooking a lot of salmon lately. i add an italian herbs mix (parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage and some other shit), salt, pepper, garlic powder and fry it with olive oil..add some brown rice, veggies, sweet potato or whatever you like.

    are you using a non-stick pan? my shit breaks up whenever it sticks and i try to flip the shit over...

    like you said it "breaks" up easily, sometimes i just throw it in some eggs and make a omelet.

    Im not a big fish eater and was curious if anyone could recommend me a fish that doesn't taste as "fishy" as a few others. From what I heard salmon has a "fishy" taste, but when I tried it it wasn't too bad. Any recommendations?

    Tilapia tastes like whatever you season it with. Its also very easy to cook.

    i've done pretty similar to that but wrapped it in aluminum and put on the george forman and since its pretty flaky just eating it offf the foil or just fliping on the plate doesnt nessecarily make it lok like shit

    i like the tilapia but sams club has some pretty decent prices on big salmon filets that are fresh for decent price too if you like the fishyer flavor i've had a hard time with tilapia for a while since i had a really bad frozen batch and im having a hard time stomaching it lately

    needs more salmon!

    This w/yellow squash & zucchini sauteed in butter, and grilled asparagus is about as good as it gets mah nig.

    4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
    8 lemon slices (about 2 lemons)
    1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
    1/2 cup Marsala wine (or white wine)
    4 teaspoons capers

    4 pieces of aluminum foil

    Brush top and bottom of salmon fillets with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Place each piece of seasoned salmon on a piece of foil large enough to fold over and seal. Top the each piece of salmon with 2 lemon slices, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of wine, and 1 teaspoon of capers. Wrap up salmon tightly in the foil packets.
    Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Place the foil packets on the hot grill and cook for 10 minutes for a 1-inch thick piece of salmon. Serve in the foil packets.

    Most white fleshed fish aren't strong tasting. Try cod, haddock, sole, flounder, orange roughy....

    nomnomnomnomnom for sure.

    if they break up on you in the pan thats user error bro. cook em slower

    The stuff I get is in individually wrapped, I just drop two bags in boiling water and let it cook that way. Then just take it out of the package, add salt and pepper ...
