Citrus Baked Tilapia Recipe From The Anabolic Cooking Book

Citrus Baked Tilapia Recipe full recipe and steps below.

Tilapia makes for very good food. It is full of nutrients and protein, with little fat (only 3g per 100g serving!). It is especially good for anyone focusing on fat loss. It has no carbohydrates. Fish is a good complement to any protein or meat diet because it is rich in vitamins and nutrients that may be missing in other foods. In particular, tilapia is rich in selenium, phosphorous, niacin and vitamin B12.

Taste-wise, this recipe is zesty. Try to go to a market that sells a lot of fish and buy it fresh. It will be a heavenly experience. You should be able to purchase it with scales removed and ready to be cooked. In North America and Asia, Tilapia is also very commonly sold. It may be the same in other places around the world. If not, consider substituting it with another sort of healthy fish using the same marinade.
