Havesting Tilapia

Jared Netting Tilapia This past Friday I was invited to a sustainability luncheon. The lunch was comprised of locally grown and prepared foods including apple sauce and cider, pies, canned vegetables, grass-fed burgers and, of course, my Tilapia. Catching them was one of the most interesting aspects of preparing the fish. I recruited a friend of mine, Jared Franklin, to give me a hand netting, while I sized and sexed the fish. We collected only four fish, and placed them into an ice bath to keep them from jumping around.

The fish was filleted and prepared with a small amount of butter, pepper, and adobe salt. We cooked them in a charcoal grill. It was delicious! Harvested FishFillets
