Sustainably Delicious

Fresh jalapeno from the garden were the inspiration for this dish. This is uber easy to prepare and very zesty and flavorful. Lower in fat, gluten-free and a great diabetic entrée choice.
Tilapia is a North African native fish and is found in the Nile. To meet the protein demands of our ever-expanding populations, it is being farmed all over the world.
Your “Best Choice” is tilapia grown in the U.S. in environmentally friendly systems. “Avoid” farmed tilapia from China and Taiwan, where pollution and weak management are widespread problems. The Monterey Bay Aquarium provides a pocket seafood watch list on their site for different regions across America providing environmentally sound seafood choices. Tilapia is on the good choice list with the above caveat regarding where it was produced.
