BAKE, BROIL OR PAN FRY
To Thaw: Remove loins from vacuum wrap. Place loins in bowl of cool water until completely thawed or place in refrigerator for 24 hours until thawed.
Simple Preparation Instructions: For best taste and texture, bake the tilapia loins.
Pan Fry: Fry a single layer of loins in a skillet with hot oil at 350°F until golden brown or until fish flakes easily. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain, and serve immediately.
Bake: Preheat oven to 425°F. Place loins in lightly oiled shallow baking dish. Season with salt, pepper and butter or margarine. Bake 6 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness of loin until it is opaque throughout.
Broil: Preheat broiler. If desired, season fish with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Place pan containing fish 4 to 5 inches from heat and broil 6 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness of loin. Test flaking at thickest part of loin.
