Tilapia Fish Saute In Fine Fresh Butter, Lemon And Tarragon.

According to Wikipedia" this article is about the fish that fall under the term tilapia in common usage. For species belonging to the genus Tilapia, see Tilapia (genus).


Nile tilapia
(Oreochromis niloticus niloticus)
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Actinopterygii
Order: Perciformes
Family: Cichlidae
Subfamily: Pseudocrenilabrinae
Tribe: Tilapiini
Oreochromis (about 30 species)
Sarotherodon (over 10 species)
Tilapia (about 40 species)
and see text
Tilapia (play /tɨˈlɑːpiə/ ti-lah-pee-ə), is the common name for nearly a hundred species of cichlid fish from the tilapiine cichlid tribe. Tilapia inhabit a variety of fresh water habitats, including shallow streams, ponds, rivers and lakes. Historically, they have been of major importance in artisan fishing in Africa and the Levant, and are of increasing importance in aquaculture. Tilapia can become problematic invasive species in new warm-water habitats, whether deliberately or accidentally introduced, but generally not in temperate climates due to their inability to survive in cool waters, generally below 60 °F (16 °C). (See tilapia as exotic species). "

Having copied verbatim the above from Wikipedia on Google, including the above picture,  I would like to share with you a new experience. We ate Tilapia fish for the first time. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the thawed perfectly appetizing looking filet of this fish.  It came out delicious. I totally recommend this this recipe with this fish especially if it is the first time for you as well.

Σφύριδα Στο Γκριλ...White Fish In Oven Grill And Steamed Cauliflower

Today we are having "White Fish" slices for lunch. For my Greek friends and specially one friend living in The Hague White Fish is Γλαύκος or Σφυρίδα.They are big round slices which look very appetizing. We buy them frozen from the supermarket.  We must eat fish at least once a week. In other words we must eat everything which contains lots of water....and on top of that we have to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Except for some crazy appetites, we try to eat healthy! I would like to share with you this wet, cold, sad Sunday a recipe which is coming out of my blue (not "the"blue, my blue)...Oven grilled White Fish with various spices served with steamed cauliflower...
