Tilapia is a moist, white meat fish containing high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, protein and vitamin D. However, farm-raised tilapia contains significantly fewer beneficial nutrients than wild-caught varieties, "The New York Times" reports. The fish’s meat tastes subtle and melds well with powerful sauces. The flavors of a teriyaki sauce will soak into tilapia, accenting it with sweet and tangy tastes. Approximately 20 minutes is required to prepare teriyaki tilapia. This recipe yields four servings.
