Broiled Tilapia with Yogurt and HerbsEasy Seafood Recipes - Broiled Tilapia with Yogurt and Herbs

Tilapia is a type of fish that, when farmed responsibly, can be extremely healthy and delicious. This recipe is just 182 calories! “Parcook the tilapia before slathering on the sauce to brown it slightly. Look for fillets with even thickness, but if you can’t find them, fold the thin end of the fillet under itself to encourage even cooking. Serve this with a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc or American Pinot Gris–both pick up on the floral and herbal notes and accentuate the topping’s acidity.” Watch Barton prepare this dish here, or find the recipe and ingredients here.
