DGS: make me some tea: Achiote tilapia (or swai).Achiote? I know, googleFu and all, but.. what's that?Sapper_Topo: fark YEAH FOOD THREAD!!!!Who wants my recipe for smoked brook trout?!Well, yeah, how do you smoke it? I loved smoked salmon when I tried it before, and I'm not even that big a salmon fan.
Nabb1: the biggest redneck here: Nabb1: I used to eat a lot of tilapia until a marine biologist friend of mine ruined it for me.My wife doesn't care for fish much, so I rarely cook it. I do grill shrimp stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in pancetta.The vast -- and I mean VAST -- majority of the tilapia on the American market is farmed (it's all farmed) in Asia. In places where there's not much in the way of regulation. Shipped in frozen, thawed, and sold to an unsuspecting public.They are poop eaters. Fish farms began stocking them to eat the poop generated by the other fish being raised. Then they figured out they can sell the tilapia, too. No matter where they came from, they were eating poop. Either questionable, chemical and hormone-laden poop or all natural organic poop, but it was poop just the same.
