Tilapia is a commonly used fish in an aquaponics system – and for good reason. Tilapia are hardy to keep, but also popular as a food so are easy to sell, but also oh-so easy to enjoy yourself.

It is firm-fleshed fish, versatile to cook and delicious. It also doesn’t give off a strong fishy odor like many other fish.

It is also incredibly healthy, being low in fat and also an excellent source of protein, whilst also providing an essential hit of Omega 6 fatty acids.

We are salivating at the look of this recipe – Tilapia fillets cooked South Indian style.

With a side of delicious aquaponics vegetables, we can’t think of a better meal!

Here is a video of the recipe:

Being a health-nut, London born Pippa has struggled to adjust to the lack of availability of lettuce and kale since re-locating to India. Previously naive to the extent of the worlds food struggles, she has now become obsessed with sustainability in food production and especially in India where it needs it the most (plus she’s also hoping to get her hands on some kale any day now). When she’s not writing for Aquaponics in India, she is usually found with her head in a book or in the kitchen experimenting with new vegetarian recipes.
