Quick Tilapia Curry | Sprinkle and a Dash |Tilapia Curry
I serve this up in a deep bowl with a squeeze of lime and sprinkle of cilantro, nothing else needed. Except a spoon.
Tilapia purchased from Costco has the best flavor.  My family can tell the difference.
If you haven’t tried Tilapia, check out the protein per 4 oz serving, a whopping

29 grams of protein to 3 grams of fat.

Plus, it’s very tender and buttery mild.
The least fishy fish in my opinion, at least that I have tried.
So, this is my go to fish option especially when it’s cold outside.
On a low calorie diet like HCG try this version…. Baked Tilapia Curry (HCG Diet friendly)  
Keto and dairy free you’re set,  it’s gluten-free if you swap out the soy sauce for aminos.  Perfect for the whole family.
