Recipes: Wet Fry Lake Victoria Tilapia


500g Whole Tilapia fish

50gs Sliced Onions

100gs Chopped Tomato

5g Chopped Garlic

300 ml cooking oil

20g coriander

100ml water

1 pinch of  salt

1 pinch of black pepper


Shallow fry the Tilapia until golden brown on both sides. Remove from the oil and drain well on the rack or use a paper towel to remove excess fats.

Meanwhile on a saucepan add oil, onions and garlic and fry until soft. Then add the chopped tomato and stir until it forms a thick sauce. Once the sauce is ready, add the fried Tilapia into the sauce and turn on both sides so that the whole fish is coated. Cover the pan and cook on low heat for ten more minutes.

You may serve the fish with ugali, chapatti or rice and vegetables of your choice. You could also try it with one of these potato recipes – Lifestyle: Six Potato Recipes That You Should Try Out At Home
