So, how much is tilapia in your area?
A conversation with riverli in the Beautiful chinese dishes
thread got me out into a couple of Asian markets yesterday. Both had live tilapia in tanks and had paper signs saying, "Tilapia $2.99" taped to the tank. I wondered if they meant per pound or fish, but communication was difficult and live fish wasn't the mission so I didn't learn any more. I will be back to one of them at, least, and expect to find out.
I don't remember for sure but I think I've paid 4.99 to 5.99 for tilapia fillets. I've never bought the whole cleaned fish.
Does tilapia make a decent fish stock?
