gonna add this to the rotation. tilapia is $3.99 a pound

Tilapia is $5.99 - $6.99 per pound in South Florida, even when buying in bulk from Costco.  Tilapia and other fish will likely go up in price tomorrow.  Today is the last day until May 1 that you are allowed catch grouper down here.  We have a 4-month ban, coinciding with their spawning season, to help correct for the over-fishing.  The ban runs is for Atlantic waters from North Carolina through The Keys, and then on the gulf side of the keys, and will be repeated annually until the population recovers. 

A good thing about the light fish like tilapia is that it works well with about any kind of sauce/seasoning.  A couple months ago we made some coated with fresh coconut, similar to coconut shrimp, that was outstanding.  One mom & pop Jamaican restaurant makes a tilapia sandwich, with a their homemade jerk sauce on the side for dipping (though I usually just pour it over the fish), that is really good, too.
