Fresh fish Tilapia

It is very seldom that you can find Tilapia here in India. Sometimes when you buy it does look like tilapia but it was just the cousin of tilapia. Hubby bought this fish for Rs 50.00 only. I was excited to taste tilapia but after hubby cooked it, it wasn't tasting like the tilapia that I used to like back home, I was thinking if this was just another cousin of that fish.

Another headless fish, dunno if it was really tilapia or its the cousin

It taste a lot like "gilik" sorry I don't know what is the equivalent English word for gilik. But definitely I really did not enjoy this fish that looks a lot like tilapia. Anyway, if you ask me what is the best recipe for tilapia fish, I would say Simple fried Tilapia and another one is with Coconut milk and green chili.

I also miss milk fish (bangus) since it is not available here. What most fishes sold here in the local market and grocery were sole fish, baby shark, pomfret and other unknown fishes for me that I don't eat.

One more day to go before hubby gets his off day, my supply for food is running dry, can't just get out to buy since I am taking care of my little one. My MIL already went home and there was no one to look after me and baby if hubby is at work that is why, I still struggle to prepare foods and blog it here, probably when baby gets a bit bigger or if I will have someone to take care of baby, I can get back for more blogging and writing, but anyway I enjoy every moment with my baby.

maybe similar to tilapia because their eyes look different. Anyway, we just ate fried tilapia. ;)

Well, for me, all fish looks same and taste same. I am not a great lover of fish and when i mom makes it, i try to taste it a little, so its kinda confusing for me to identify various kinds of fish available.

Our family loves Tilapia! We either fry it, grill or simmer it in coconut milk with leafy vegetables!
