What to do with leftover tilapia?

Commented on January 04, 2018

I found tilapia fillets majorly on sale yesterday, and had to cook it all before it went bad. Now I have no idea what to do with all of this leftover fish. Pre-Paleo, I definitely would have gone with fish tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...now I'm sort of at a loss.

Any creative ideas on how to use up all of this amazingness?

Talapia allows the chef to be creative in order to bring out the subtle flavors blended with a really good sauce. :)

I think it kinda tastes like mud.

"...should mask the taste." What taste? I thought tilapia was the tofu of the water.

Seriously though, fish and eggs do rock together.

Cover it with a heavy layer of butter and spices, and enjoy the taste of...the butter and spices.

Tilapia is the blandest, tastes-like-nothing fish I've ever eaten. Its main market must be people who don't like fish that smell or taste like fish.

Fish Curry!! Coconut milk and curry taste & veggies. Fab for leftover seafood.

Put it on a salad. I'd try it in eggs too, but I'll eat almost anything in eggs

Scramble it in some eggs and lots of butter. The eggs and butter should mask the taste.

I like it with broccoli and butter. But next time, just freeze it, unless it's been previously frozen :) You can even cook it from frozen, no need to thaw.
