Tilapia is a very common fish in the most part of the world. Because of its easy availability, some people try to dig out some clue for pointing out any type of harmful effect of this fish. But actually, this is a tasty fish which is of course, less costly due to its availability. It is also one small kind of fish with less bone. There are many tilapia fry recipes. Here I described two recipes; one cooked in the oven and another one in the normal burner. Both are easy and simple recipes. Hope you will like the two recipes.
