Are you a fish lover or hater? Does the smell alone bother so you'd prefer not to cook it in the house? That's probably the biggest issue I have heard from a ton of people about cooking fish. But THIS fish is not as smelly as others I have made. And trust me on this I know smelly fish, hubby is an avid fisherman!
So for this reason my family loves tilapia. Baking it as opposed to frying it is really the way I would prefer they learn to eat it and like it. I mean everyone loves fried food right?
Of course we do. We still do have fried fish, but in moderation. I am just trying my very best to make my family ENJOY as much healthy food as I can without frying it.
I hope you will try this delicious dish with your family and let me know if they enjoy it.

Because this doesn't have a strong fishy flavor or smell its a perfect fish to start with if your family isn't fond of eating fish regularly.
If you already have fish incorporated into life, what type do you enjoy and how often?
