While searching for new main courses to add to my usual repertoire of family meals, I recently came across Safeway Boneless & Skinless Tilapia Fillets. Taking into account my love of all things seafood, but knowing that my family usually turns their noses up at any fish that is too “fishy,” I decided to give this product a try. I was certainly happy that I did, since this product has made an appearance at my dinner table every week since I first purchased it. Here is one Mom’s review of Safeway Boneless & Skinless Tilapia Fillets.
The Safeway brand of products at Genuardi’s and Safeway stores are usually great money savers. The comparable quality of their products to more nationally known brands, coupled with the amount of money saved per unit is usually a combination that can not be beat. Safeway Boneless & Skinless Tilapia Fillets are certainly no exception.
This product is packaged in a wonderful thirty two ounce value pack that contains about ten servings. The price of this package is $6.99. Considering that a family of four can easily get two dinners out of one bag makes this frozen fish a great bargain. The country is still in the throes of a recession and a little effort and dedication to searching out those bargains when it comes to the family food budget can help to make those dollars stretch.
Preparation of Safeway Boneless & Skinless Tilapia Fillets is so easy, it allows for the cook to spend more time and energy on the other elements of the meal, making the finished dinner a healthy and balanced offering. Each fillet is individually packaged, which makes cooking only a few portions at a time a cinch. After preheating the oven to four hundred and fifty degrees, the thawed tilapia fillets get placed in a lightly greased baking pan. The fish then gets sprinkled with salt, pepper, bread crumbs if so desired and slices of lemon. Baking time can vary between eight and fifteen minutes depending on the heat of individual ovens. Your own personal recipe for fish can be easily incorporated using these frozen fillets. According to the declaration on the back of the package, any thawed Safeway Boneless & Skinless Tilapia Fillets should be kept refrigerated and used within one or two days.
