Versatile Tilapia The firm texture and mild flavor of tilapia make it ideal for a variety of cooking methods. Pan-fried, broiled, baked, or braised, tilapia readily absorbs the robust flavor of spicy marinades, creamy sauces, and subtle seasonings. Plus, a 6-ounce fillet only has about 125 calories and about 1 gram of fat.

Spicy Seafood Stew Recipe Because tilapia absorbs flavor so well, it's a perfect addition to this seafood stew. The flavors of ground cumin, chili powder, and hot green chilies meld seamlessly with the tilapia, red potatoes, and shrimp. Serve over quinoa or rice.
