There are so many different opinions when it comes to tilapia, but everyone agrees, it’s a good source of protein and is low in calorie. The fresh tilapia sold at Raskin’s counters is never frozen and never from China which make it a better choice in selecting tilapia.
We used one of our signature blends, Boston Bay, to spice it with delicious flavors and cooked it together with a tasty mix of vegetables that kept the fish very moist.
Boston bay is a blend of herb and spices that tastes great on seafood; it’s the perfect combination of flavors with just the right amount of heat. Celery, mustard, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper (just to name a few ingredients).
