Product Description

Waitrose Tilapia Fillets

Tilapia is farmed around the world. Ours comes from the crystal clear waters of Lake Kariba. The farm which was built 10 years ago has given work to several hundred locals who enjoy the benefits of free eductaion, healthcare and housing. The flesh is creamy pink, with a delicate mild taste that goes well with sauces. Great for frying or grilling.

Product Information



Store below 5°C.

Prepare & Use

Each fillet is approx 120 grams which is a single serving.

Fry gently for approximately 7 minutes, turning once.
Tilapia fillets are excellent cooking in seasoned flour to give them a crisp outer coating. Tilapia fillets take all flavours well but are at their best with lightly spiced Cajun or Creole style seasonings.

Small size

The fish was nice, but like the other reviewers said, very small, we only have small appetites, so thought it would do the two of us. It did not. It was only enough for one.The River Cobbler is similar, and a better buy. As you are unsure what amount you will get with the shop it is difficult to decide how much to buy.

Very good fresh quality. After reading reviews here I ordered us 2 each which was about right for 2 hungry adults. I oven baked in lemon juice and white wine, then served with a sauce. My husband and I both agreed this was absolutely delicious.

Sizing Issues

This is a lovely fish and goes well with Thai sauces. However, the size difference on Ocado - ranging from a tiddly 60g to an acceptable 140g - makes it impossible to buy in future. Today's delivery is just 80g each, which is not large enough for a main course portion - I therefore have 2 hours now in which to dash around my local supermarkets trying to source another couple of pieces for my meal tonight. Come on Ocaco - offer us a more accurate size and make the weight up with additional fillets where necessary. Sadly I can't buy these again from you or recommend for the above reasons.

Sustainable, cheap and tasty

Very happy with this, although sometimes the fillet sizes vary rather a lot. Ocado should put in an extra fillet to make up for low weight... The fish is light and fresh tasting and super easy to cook. Yum!

Lovely & Lean

We love Tilapia because it is sustainable and tastier than most freshwater fish. Since it is a fairly plain tasting white fish it can be accompanied by creamy / spicy sauces. My last purchase from Ocado was somewhat disappointing since the fillets were very small and not worth the price.

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and, to the best of our knowledge, believe it is accurate you should note that the summary product information (in particular the "Other Information" section) may change between the time you place your order on the website and the time your order is delivered (in this regard we rely on our suppliers to tell us of any changes in a timely manner so we can update our website). For example, as all meat and fish products are naturally farmed, there may be occasions when due to weather conditions we may need to source from alternative approved sources (and hence the product origin may change). Therefore, if you do require the most up-to-date product information following delivery of your order, please ensure you check the website for details.
If the summary product information contains a link to another party's website for further information on the product, please note that Ocado has no control over and no liability for the contents of that website.
You also need to be aware that for those service counter goods where we offer additional preparation services (ie removal of the head and tail of a fish or for a rack of lamb to be cut into cutlets), the price will be calculated based on the weight of the whole fish before the head and tail have been removed and the lamb rack before it has been cut into cutlets, should you request this service. The receipt and product label you receive will also show the actual weight of the whole fish and/or lamb rack (before the head and tail of the fish has been removed and the lamb rack has been cut into cutlets).
You should note that the picture images show only our serving suggestions of how to prepare your food - all table accessories and additional items and/or ingredients pictured with the product you are purchasing are not included.
