    Fish is a great source of protein that helps repair body tissue. This delectable Sweet and Sour Tilapia dish also contains Vitamin A which keeps the skin and eyes healthy.

    Make sure the tilapia is fresh by looking for certain characteristics. Their eyes should be clear and bulging, and the gills should be red. The flesh should be firm and should bounce back when touched.
