The supermarket has been having tilapia fish at the counter for the past few months.
Having not tried it, I was curious to see what it was like.
But paying $6.99 a pound to try it was risky just in case it wasn't something we liked.
When we found it on sale for $1.99 a pound, we were pleased and anxious to have a meal of it.
We had read it was quickly becoming a favorite through out the US for it's very mild flavor that didn't have a fishy taste.
We cooked it on the grill, as we usually cook our fish to avoid the smell indoors.
The fillets were thin and it didn't take very long.
The cooked texture reminded me of salmon, not the like the other white fish of cod or haddock.
The taste was extremely mild - not much flavor at all.
But the thing that got me was the texture in my mouth.
It was mushy.
Salmon is not mushy.
Mush and me do not get along.
So glad we got the tilapia at such a deal - we will not be buying it again.
I can say the cat sure appreciated it though!
