Think salmon and tuna are the only heart-healthy fish? Think again: Tilapia (and especially baked tilapia) is another delicious, cholesterol-friendly fish that makes a great addition to your diet. Although it is not as high in omega-3 fat as salmon or tuna, tilapia is still considered heart-healthy. It is low in saturated fat and has only 30 calories per ounce.
A Non-Fishy Fish
Tilapia is a great choice for those who don't like the taste of fish, as it is mild and easily takes on the flavor of the ingredients it is prepared with.
Try tilapia with citrus (lemon, lime, oranges), savory (tarragon, dill) or spicy (chili peppers, chili sauce) toppings for a tasty flavor combination. Tilapia is best baked, broiled or grilled.
