    This is exactly why I stopped feeding my kids fish. I was feeding tilapia but was out with friends and they were saying tilapia is a dirty fish and should be avoided. Iím working on adding it back in now.

    I am totally following this thread. I'm trying to increase my fish intake as well.

    The only fish I eat are salmon, smoked salmon and tuna fish! And with the salmon I just wrap it up in foil spray it with olive oil and put a bunch of fresh garlic on it. I need some more interesting recipes!

    We end up eating a lot of tilapia because I buy it frozen, and itís my go-to emergency meal when I canít get to the supermarket. I can defrost it soaking in cold water while the oven heats to 425, and it isnít mushy defrosted, which thicker filets can sometimes be. I spread a very thin layer of mayonnaise, sprinkle with spices (we like Mrs. Dash garlic and herb) and then sometimes with Parmesan (or just use mayo and parmesan, whatever you like.) It cooks in under ten minutes. You can cook any white fish this way with any kind of spices you like with either a little bit of olive oil or a tiny spread of mayo. You also can do foil or parchment packets. Put the fish in with whatever veggies you like. I often do peppers, onions, snow peas, asparagus. I put in a little butter, white wine, lemon, a sprinkle of saltó itís delicious. You kind of canít go wrong with a white fish like tilapia, haddock, scrod, cod, plaice, pollock, etc. because you can just use any spices or flavors you like. A thicker filet just requires a bit more cooking time. I do avoid buying any fish from China (a lot of frozen fish is packaged there.) Iíll pay more to get a higher quality frozen fish. Itís better to buy fresh, of course, but frozen fish is our familyís equivalent of a frozen dinner or pizza. Itís quick and always on hand just in case.

    Salmonís great poached in white wine, a little butter, lemon, and a bit of dill. Itís also great with teriyaki sauce. I do a sauce thatís teriyaki, honey, Mirin, ginger. I think itís from skinnytaste. Salmon is a fish thatís really good for you, but only if itís wild caught. The farmed doesnít have all the same health benefits, but we eat it occasionally anyway. I find frozen salmon is mushy defrosted, so I buy that fresh when Iím at a store I know has good fresh fish. Itís usually a special treat for us, maybe monthly or a little less often than that.

    I’ve been getting wild caught flounder, salmon and tuna at Aldi. I usually broil it.

    We love salmon here, and cod or haddock. My kids would eat salmon every day if I bought it.

    I have stopped buying Tilapia, read too many scary things about it.
