Cooking fish in the slow cooker is a bit tricky! You dont want to overcook it, but at the same time when you cook it in slow cooker it gives you that extra time to do something else while its cooking.
Is fish good on KETO?
Fish is a very keto friendly food, very low in carbs and high in protein. The most popular fish on ketogenic diet is salmon, but tilapia or cod are also very popular options. Shellfish is also very low in carbs and a great keto food.
Tilapia is a very inexpensive fish and could be found in almost every grocery store. People are frying it, baking it, sauteing or grilling. Tilapia has almost no fat in it so its easy to overcook it and make it rubbery and dry.
Do you have to thaw tilapia before cooking?
Short answer is yes. When you cook most fish from frozen it releases a lot of water that may destroy your final dish. Thaw the fish completely before coking and pat dry it with a paper towel.
