I'll have to try the Ceviche.

I've made a few batches of baked Tilapia recently. On it's own it's rather average fish served with a few good sides.

I have made it baked with a spice rub I bought at Kroger though wich I found makes it a very tastey seafood.

Interesting about the sushi. Wouldn't have thought of it--and not sure I would trust my sources for its freshness--as in squeaky fresh for sushi. Tilapia gets HIGH marks for being a farmed fish with good methods.

Candocook - Here's a link to a company that sells sushi-quality Tilapia (along with many other interesting sushi-quality items). I haven't ordered from them yet, but plan to in the near future.

Might as well share my experiences: I've bought the fillets frozen and individually packed, which is very easy, but I was not impressed with the taste or the flakiness of the fish. Just yesterday my wife decided she wanted to make some fish tacos so I bought 3 whole fish (gutted) and filleted them up. I was sadly disappointed by the amount of meat that was yielded.

We like it a lot. Sometimes, I season it, add thinly sliced peppers and grape tomatoes and cook it in parchment on the grill or in the oven.
