Muscle Building Recipe Baked Citrus Tilapia

For building lean muscle you’re are going to need a good supply of protein.  Fish may be the best source of protein there is. It is very lean and fits into low carb diet plans.

Did you know that The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week?

Unfortunately, fish is a not very popular meal choice among bodybuilders and fitness models…

most people find fish boring and not very good tasting, kind of fishy…

Well friends, that’s all about to change…

Dave has cooked up a winner here with his delicious Citrus Tilapia recipe!

Tilapia is not as common as other fish so here is the run down on this muscle building fat burning fish.

Aquaculture tilapia fish is a nutritious and healthy part of a balanced diet that is high in protein, low in fat and substitutes well in any seafood recipe.  Tilapia is a mild tasting freshwater fish with firm, white flesh. It is very high in protein and very low in fat.

Because the majority of the tilapia found in your local fish market are farm raised, it is relatively inexpensive. Tilapia has been farm-raised as far back as ancient Egypt, and now such farming occurs in more than 85 countries.  Versatile and adaptable to many cuisines, recipes and cooking styles, tilapia has become a favorite in my house and with professional chefs.

Adaptable and affordable, tilapia is often substituted for more expensive fish like flounder, sole, haddock, cod, shrimp or Salmon. Tilapia does not have a distinctive taste of its own, so it is a perfect fish to use in recipes that use marinades.
