I have a lifelong aversion to eating fish, fueled in part by being forced to eat really nasty bluefish by my grandparents when I was a kid. Over the weekend MrsBlue convinced me to indulge her and she bought some tilapia. By far the most appealing recipe she found for it was a blackened dealie, but she didn't want to do it that way because it involved frying it, so now I was not only going to be eating the fish, I was also the cook. The blackened tilapia turned out to be very palatable, the flesh was mild and the spicy blackened crust was well suited to my tastes. After this favorable experience I looked up tilapia on Wikipedia, and found that the fish it noted for its mildness, but while it tends to be very low in mercury and the farmed varieties are both sustainable and fairly environmentally friendly, it's not actually a very healthy food. While the farm-raised variety is low in saturated fat, it is very fatty (low in omega-3 and high in omega-6), and the wiki notes: "According to research published in July 2008, farm raised tilapia may be worse for the heart than eating bacon or a hamburger." Oh well, at least this makes me willing to try other fish in the future that are hopefully healthier.
Today is Ash Wednesday. I may watch an Evil Dead movie or two in celebration.
