    F'in Tilapia...

    So the owner of the restaurant I work at came by today with 2 cases of IQF Japanese Tilapia. I hate tilapia, I really hate tilapia. Anyone have any ideas what to make with it?

    What type of restaurant? For me I usually have it breaded and fried served with frijoles, rice and pico, but obviously I have only had it in Mexican restaurants. lol.

    I think it would also go good with a ginger/soy sauce.

    I like to serve it what I was taught as "florentine"

    lightly breaded (dusted really)
    fried in a saute pan w/ butter - remove fish and hold hot (finishing steps should take less than 1 minute)
    deglaze the pan w/ white wine, add lemon juice and capers
    toss in a good handful of spinach for about 15 seconds and remove to plate

    make a nest of the now lightly cooked spinach and serve the fish on top

    I like Stephan's idea, though I'd probably add a lot more wine than is needed to deglaze, throw in some shallots, and then mount with butter after it reduces a bit. Tilapia Piccata? Why not!

    My first thought was tacos too, although Stephan's idea sounds worth a try too!
