Tilapia is a great fish with no flavor. What? I say this is a good thing due to the fact you can season it the way you want without compromising your plan. I consider Tilapia the true chicken of the sea. Sorry Tuna...but it's true. Using Beer and butter make this dish so appealing to me. Hops, malt, butter...It truly is a delight. I always like to remind people....cook with what you drink. If you don't drink a macro lite beer, do not cook with it! Enjoy the recipe below!
