Tilapia is one of my go-to protein sources! It’s easy to make, packed with protein, low fat, tastes delicious, and it is CHEAP.
I buy a big bag of frozen filets and dethaw each one in the fridge the day before I plan to eat it. You can also just leave it on the counter a couple hours before cooking or even run under cold water in the sink for about 20 minutes to dethaw in a pinch – another reason to love this protein source!
I always cook it the same way – blackened. This meal could not be easier!
