Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. Tilapia is a fine fish, delicious, healthy and reasonable. If you agree with that, then you should try fresh, live swimming tilapia, it is simply heavenly. In high-end restaurants, Tilapia is typically served whole and filleted in the dinning room in front of the patrons. I decided to do the same. There is a store where live fish can be bought here in NYC. I choose red Tilapia because the color has more plate appeal. Tilapia has a sweet earthy flavor and mild and a firm, flaky texture. However, the earthy flavor can taste muddy to some. This recipe is designed to transform this earthy flavor into something that is subtlety gracious.The heavy duty non-stick Reynolds wrap is to create a cooking environment that will cook the fish quickly at very high heat, at the same time giving a little smoky flavor and making the skin very crispy.BTW, each 16 oz of whole tilapia is 5 oz of meat after filleted. The plating of this dish shows one serving.
