EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Prevent fish from drying out by cooking it with salsa, roasted red peppers and nopales in a foil packet.

Nopales are the fleshy oval leaves, or pads, of the prickly pear cactus. They taste slightly tart. Look for cans of nopales in the Mexican section of your supermarket.

When cooked, the lean white flesh of the tilapia is sweet, mild, tender and has no "fishy" flavor. The tilapia at your market may be from a fish farm in this country or from the fresh waters of Colombia or Costa Rica.
