Tilapia with Curry Butter – Shopping List

You probably have most of these items already in your kitchen pantry, and just need to purchase the fish. I’ve listed several types of fish that work well in this recipe so you can choose the type you like, and more important, the freshest. Don’t be afraid to ask the person at the fish counter what’s the freshest!
