This is also my favorite fish. And fish with veggies is even better. I made talapia yesterday in a dry key-lime fish mix. Deep fried. It was so good.

I meant to say vegetables… I didn't proof read before posting. I am so sorry. Avera, I really apologize to you since you were a teacher… Talapia is both mine and my husband's favorite fish. I love seeing more recipes for its preparation. We never fry it.
