    What aspect of Tilapia do you refer to as 'shit'?

    From the Time Magazine ...

    Should I Eat Tilapia?


    5/5 experts say yes.

    Tilapia is a fine fish to put on your dish, say all five of our experts.
    Not that you were waiting for their blessing. Plenty of people choose tilapia, the second-most popular farmed fish on the planet,
    says Kevin Fitzsimmons, PhD, tilapia researcher and professor in the department of soil, water and environmental science at the University of Arizona.

    “It can be used in virtually any fish recipe,” he says.

    Those who eat the freshwater fish appreciate its mild flavor. (And those who avoid tilapia tend to do so for precisely the same reason.)

    Nutrition-wise, it’s a great source of protein, with 23 grams per 4-ounce serving, says Liz Knapp, registered dietitian at Mayo Clinic Health System.
    That’s almost half of your daily recommended total.

    Time Magazine


    bsnub, assuming you have eaten/prepared Tilapia in both the USA and Thailand (Pla Nin), how do you compare the tastes of both?
    Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure..

    You're supposed to take out the shit parts. Some don't. Whatever floats your boat I say.
    Personally I'm not too keen on fish from the Mekong. I'm sure they are fine to eat if done right. I'll let you know about Tilapia on my next run. A guy up river has a huge farm and I may just buy a few off him.

    Because it is just another farm raised shit fish. Raised in filthy fish pins and fed waste in many cases.

    Being that it eats a steady diet of it and doesn't taste that much better. There are much better wild caught alternatives for not much more money.

    Why make that assumption? Talapia would be the last thing I would eat if I was in Thailand.

    A venture around Samut Prakarn can yield wonders.

    I see Talapia heavily salted with lemongrass stuffed in their mouths on just about every grill I've seen in Asia. I never really thought that much about it.

    The farmer up river was feeding them pellets. Who knows what's in them.Looks to be a pretty large outfit. Makes me wonder if any of them make it to a large processor for packaging and sale around the world.

    I never tried any of the grilled salted fish there. I guess one or two wouldn't hurt just to try it. It's got me thinking though. Just what are those fish balls made of that they put in the Pho.

    It's not Lake Michigan Salmon you can be sure of that.

    On the evidence of your taste-buds that needs to be taken with a large grain of salt.

    Don't forget that there are two tilapia commonly raised, sold and eaten in Thailand: Pla Nin and Pla Tapteem.

    Out of curiosity, did you cook it?

    How was the taste and texture?

    A light lunch at the Phuket Yacht Club. Smooth chicken pate, with lightly toasted ciabatta, and a decent side salad.
