Let me just come right out and say it. I am not a huge fan of fish. I never make it. Ever. But after listening to friends go on and on about how much they, and more importantly their children, love tilapia, I had no choice but to try it out on some unsuspecting soulsmy family. And I will tell you right here… my children ATE FISH. Not only that, they LOVED it. Who woulda thought?
