Frying any fish whole is something we did growing up. Tilapia was one of the fishes that we fried growing up and I did enjoy and still eating the head of the tilapia. In another video on my channel I show how the fish head is eaten and the Otoliths - fish stones taken out. For this video I show two ways of frying the fresh fish: one with just the seasoning as in video and the other with a coating of all purpose flour and a little salt. This method of frying the fresh tilapia can be used in frying red sniper, cat fish and other types of fish as well.
