Inihaw na Tilapya and Talong

Okay! This food makes me really hungry right now. In english, inihaw is grilled, talong is eggplant but I really don't know what Tilapya in english is. All I know it is a fish from a pond. But if my readers knows it, kindly leave a comment.

This dish is very simple to do, there's no special recipe to do this. All you need is charcoal and barbecue grill. And of course the following:

* Tilapya

* Eggplant or Talong

* salt to taste

* Tong to flip the fish and Eggplant

Thanks anonymous for sharing. People in Houston or in USA knows tilapya because they are associated with the Filipinos. Even in the Middle East it goes the same name but definitely there is an english name for tilapya.

Anybody knows the name? Free tilapya if you can answer it. :)

Yeah in Houston you can find Tilipia-In fact you can find alot of basic ingredients to cook most filipino food as the Oriental Markets are quite huge and very competive both in price and selection.

I do know (because it was my the subject of my biology thesis) that its scientific name is Tilapia (genus) nilotica (species).

So it shouldn't be hard to believe that it's still Tilapia in English.

If that is the scientific name then I believe sarge..... but nobody can contest this, I really like Tilapya.... :)
