Indian Bombay Tilapia

Indian Bombay Tilapia

Tilapia is a quick and easy fish to cook, especially if you are new to cooking fish. It is thin and white and is hard to mess up. Plus if you do not like that “fishy” flavor, tilapia is a good choice. You can also substitute the tilapia for any other white mild fish for this paleo recipe.

Turmeric is one hell of a spice. Being able to add it to great recipes is a good way to get the health benefits it contains even if you aren’t a huge fan of its flavor. I am a turmeric fan so I like adding it to wraps, soups and you name it.
