Do tilapia fish taste good?

Taste is largely determined by the growing environment — water quality and feed — but good-quality tilapia tastes mild and sweet. … Fillets are usually frozen, depleting the delicate texture and taste. Tilapia can be grilled, baked, broiled, sautéed, pan-fried or steamed.

What do you soak tilapia in?

Fill a glass, plastic, ceramic or stainless steel bowl with enough milk or buttermilk to cover the tilapia. If you like, add some salt, pepper, chili powder or other seasonings for a more flavorful marinade. Submerge the fish for 15 to 20 minutes, turning it over halfway through.
