    About an hour on the water sent me home with these tasty morsels.

    Who knows a good trout recipe?

    Barely legal trout. Sweet.

    Fillet, then pan fry in too much butter, preferably over an open fire, pepper and lemon to taste.

    BS's Cashew Trout:

    Filets
    2/3 cup olive oil
    handful of smashed cashews
    sprinkle in rosemary leaves
    sprinkle in some lemon pepper
    hit the filets w/ garlic salt

    fry the sh*t out of it. OMG, its great!

    I just went to the store and bought 2 overpriced talapia fillets. They didn't have any trout. I'll be broke and hungry tomorrow because of you. Cool thread asshole.

    I am taking a fish culturing class right now, and learning alot about tilapia. Apparently you can raise them in bathtubs in your basement if you're so inclined, and they will make it just fine. Pretty neat and tasty little critters.

    Tilapia are bottom feeders aren't they.

    I was taught to soak them in milk to remove impurities before cooking.

    Perhaps naturally they are, but 99% of tilapia at the market are commercially cultured, and therefore fed a formulated pellet diet. I doubt impurities are a real concern, but then again, in some south american countries, where tilapia are really popular, I can see why people would want to do that because they dont have the standards we have here.

    I fried them up in olive oil and just salt and pepper. I was watching the flyers comeback and was distracted. They were well done on one side lets say.... Tater tots made up for it though!

    Actually I think they did a bit on tilapia on "dirty jobs". They raise other fish like trout and have the tilapia feed on the trout poop.

    Well, even if that's the case, it's still the same formulated diet the trout get (ie. ground up leftover trout parts after processing) after only more "processing" step. :biggrin:

    People get all bent out of shape by terms like "bottom feeder" (hehe, that's kind of funny now that I think about it) but if the stuff is farmed, it's not like mercury poisoning is going to be an issue. Flesh is flesh, who cares what they eat? What the hell does a pig eat?

    Just have him check this out:

    http://aquanic.org/publicat/usda_rac/efs/srac/282fs.pdf

    Plans for a simple recirc. system can be found online and built for less than $300. It can get as complex as you want it to, of course.

    Oh yeah, I remember that now.

    I'm going to stick to the milk soak. If nothing else it helps with the taste.


    BTW if you fry tilapia with a batter made from a 50/50 mix of flour and corn meal it won't be as greasy as a straight flour batter.

    It doesn't bother me. As long as the fish is properly gutted none of that stuff ends up on your plate. Either way I don't think fish bacteria can't hurt humans anyway, not like pork or poultry.

    "Blackened" Tilapia is usually what they sell at the restaurants.

    From the above link:


    Prevention

    Avoid ingestion of raw freshwater fish. Adequate cooking or freezing of freshwater fish will kill the encysted fish tapeworm larvae. Also, because human feces is an important mechanism for spreading eggs, proper disposal of sewage can cut down on infection of fish and thus of humans.


    I'm not certain, but I don't think there is any such thing as fresh water sushi. But since you seem to be all knowing, you will surely inform the rest of us.

    They are. Waters where I live are stocked in winter and the trout die off by June as water temps hit 70, except in the tailwaters below dams (ie. mitigation fisheries).
    The hatchery is actually right up the road from the house.

    Jesus, at that price we'd have to eat tilapia for every meal for ten years to make our money back.

    Well Im talking tanks and everything...if you use kiddie pools and trash cans, you could do it for the cost of a pump and some PVC. Also, dont forget you can sell it to mexicans. They love tilapia. You could make your money back quickly that way.

    I was wondering if the water was cold enough to let them spawn

    around '92 the band I was in was looking for a van to use for touring and we ended up buying a work van from a guy who was retiring from roofing... he looked a little young for true retirement, and when we asked a few questions about his ponds on his property he told us his new master plan for "breeding and selling this amazing fish called talapia" I thought the guy was nuts... but he seamed to have it all figured out! he had a large pole building with all kinds of large tanks and some filtering systems as well. I have no idea how the guy made out on the deal at this point, but sounds cool, thanks BS :thumb: pretty cool info!

    Brilliant. They put them in the river so they can die. I guess it's for the fishermen. :think: We do that with armadillos here, but we don't use the river and they don't die. Actually, we don't do that with armadillos here, but I was trying to relate.

    Whole, dredged in cornmeal, fried in light hot oil. The only way to do trout.

    While I definitely wouldn't say the only way, it's one of my favorites.
