Trader Joe's Panko Breaded Tilapia Fillets

If like me you don't know what "panko" is, see here.

Nina had me over for dinner and served this. It's among the most pleasant pieces of fish I've ever had--though truth be told, that doesn't encompass a large number of experiences. It's about as mild and non-fishy as I can imagine any fish being. The coating is nice and crunchy.

Will I buy it again? 

Probably not--not because there's anything wrong with it, but because I have never chosen fish over other protein sources, and don't expect to in the future. However, I certainly wouldn't mind having it again. In fact, if somebody put a gun to my head and told me that I had to go to a store and buy fish (other than tuna) and eat it, this would likely be my first choice.

Nina's View

I've now made these a couple more times for myself, and I hereby promote them to Nina's Top Ten status. They are simple to prepare, reliably tasty, and lend themselves to a variety of different serving options.

  1. I agree with Nina. This is a reliably excellent product (unlike, say, the cod neighbor in the TJ’s freezer case).

    Sorry this comment is so late. I just now saw the review, having belatedly gotten around to touting this to you.
