After I brought these tilapia fillets home, I saw they are from China.
Seriously. I just saw on Dirty Jobs not that long ago an episode about striped bass and tilapia farming right here in the desert of California by a place called Kent SeaTech. Why in the bleepity bleep are we importing them from China? And why the hell am I not reading every single label in the store?
Anyway, I'm not going to let them go to waste. The fillets were dried on paper towel before they were halved lengthwise.
Chinese tilapia fillets in the seafood section of Stater Bros. for $3.99/lb on sale.
