Here's a review for ya...

As you all probably know, I do all the cooking for the family and I do all the shopping as well...the family comes with me but I pick it all out.  Anyway, I try to make the most healthy, best tasting food for my family for the least amount of money, since we are on a very limited income. 

Where I shop, at Walmart, your products are limited.  If you go in looking for a particular item, you may not find several brands selling the same item.  So, I go to Walmart and buy the big 4lb bag of frozen tilapia...only one company's product is sold at Walmart, and it is distributed by Beaver Street Fisheries, Inc.

I have been buying that brand for years, usually it's a great brand, and offer great product. But, lately, the quality has gone downhill.  I have found bones, scales and fins in the bag, which is rather disgusting.  I buy my fish this way because I rely on it being cleaned, ready to go, no matter what my recipe, I just have to open the individually wrapped fish and then cook it and serve it up.

So, if you are going to buy this kind of fish from this company, be forewarned, check each sealed fish, upon opening, to make sure you arent serving your family (or guests) bones, fins or scales.  The fish is still incredible, but now I will just have to be a lot more careful.

It seems their quality assurance has gone out the window, which is really sad.  I hate seeing such a great product/company letting their quality sink, just to keep up with demand.  Quality should never suffer.

I will be posting some great recipes, using this fish...keep your eyes open for them...
