I was thrilled to receive Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia with Lemon, Pepper & Herbs. The first thing that came to my mind was to make a fancy looking dinner and baked tilapia with tomato rice sounded perfect.

 Baked Tilapia with Tomato Rice 1My family loves Bumble Bee SuperFresh® products and been using it for a long time. What I admire the most is the quality. Although Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia with Lemon, Pepper & Herbs was frozen, but when cooked, tastes fresh. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® smells and tastes amazing. No fishy smells here. Because you prepare Bumble Bee SuperFresh® straight from the freezer, there isn’t any smell associated with thawing fish. And the frozen protein has stayed that way from harvest to your oven unlike most of the “fresh” fish you find at the seafood counter. That means it is fresh tasting, and fresh smelling.

The package comes with two serving of Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia with Lemon, Pepper & Herbs and includes two parchment papers which you have to use to bake the tilapia. What a difference fresh lemon makes! Combined with Extra Olive Oil, shallots, black pepper and other natural ingredients, Bumble Bee SuperFresh® recipe brings out the clean, fresh flavor of premium tilapia.
