Cooking tilapia is similar to cooking any other fish. You have to prepare it based on the dish that you plan to cook before execution. This means cleaning the fish by removing the scales, gills, and innards before anything else. We all have different ways of preparation. For example: after cleaning, I rub salt all over the before frying it. If being grilled directly over heat, I leave the scales in so that it won’t stick on the grill.Most Tilapia Recipes mention that the fish needs to be cleaned, it is important to understand that cleaning the tilapia means removing the internal organs and gills — not just washing it with water.
