So a little brush of ginger soy goes a long way to helping the fish.
imho "a little brush" is NOT a marinade.

I also don't "do" tilapia. but then, I don't do many farmed fish -- catfish being the exception. Tilapia has no flavor to my palate, so I prefer to prepare fish that has flavor.

Most of the fish I buy comes from the fisherman from Montauk who sells at the Greenmarket on Saturdays, so all that is there is wild-caught fish -- hence no tilapia.

all i ever do to tilapia is dredge in flour ( no eggs, panko or other crumbs) this gives a slightly crispy crust on the outside and does not over cook the fish.

tilapia and catfish, and salmon are the only fish i cook. oh my! forgot lobster. you would think there would be more fresh fish in so calif. not so for some reason.

babetoo, you should be able to find a Trader Joes somewhere near you - there are almost 75 located within 50 miles of LA. I would think they are all over CA since their first store was in Pasedena - and is still there since 1967. Although we have a good selection of fresh fish practically anywhere up here I usually keep a few selections of TJs frozen fish in my freezer. It's vac packed; I've never been unhappy with anything I've used. Comes in handy for the night you just have a taste for fish and are too lazy to go out and buy it.

I'm actually going to try the idea with the noodles, but I've purchased zero sodium noodles in the Japanese section at a specialty store.

I can't wait to try it.

I'm more than happy to sing the praises of Trader Joe's. In all the years we've been going to them I have had only one item I was not pleased with. You just take it back and they give you store credit...no questions asked except for why you were returning. And it's hard to beat most of their prices/quality.
