Tilapia PastryThis was such a pleasant experiment that we have since cooked this dish with different meats and fillings. The puff pastry is just perfect for making surprise wraps.

Here is how we did this pastry wrapped tilapia:

    This looks really good, I mean really good! I'm a fan of anything savory wrapped in pastry. Interesting fact on's pretty much a "ditch" fish where I'm from and no one would think of eating them, but a friend from Vegas says that they are easy to be found in the market (I guess tilapia are farmed over there?). Hmmm...

    Y'know, after your last pastry meal I forgot to ask which dough you used. The last time I was in the grocery I thought I'd try doing soething like that but I bought the pizza dough instead. Glad you linked up which pastry dough you used, I just had one of those "aha" moments. Thanks.

    Hi rowena! me too! when I was growing up, tilapia along with catfish were "ditch" fish, and now tilapia is the new rage :-) Yes, they are farmed over here and don't look anything like the tilapia I am used to seeing.

    Hi ces! thanks. I know what you mean, sometimes my grocery list looks like it is culled from food blogs :-)

    Hi sis! these puff pastry things were a great discovery. I love them now, and have plenty of ideas on how to use them next. xoxo

    Hi thess! good to 'c' you back! The little chefs are all well and cooking away :)

    Hi chas! you can probably substitute any white fish found over there. We didn't have tilapia here in NC when we first moved here, then when we finally got them, I resisted paying the exorbitant prices they were asking for. Now they are more reasonable and we have tilapia regularly now. Sadly, it's always the filleted variety :-( I'd like the whole fish once in a while.

    Hi stel! thanks! We liked it since it's a different and new way of serving the same old fish :-) I still like the whole inihaw na tilapia with tomatoes and patis though. Yumm!

    I'm thinking now, where can I find puff pastry here in Pinas? Parang wala akong nakikita sa grocery/supermarket. I'll try to find one.

    For sure, super sarap ng recipe na ito.

    Thanks JMom for sharing.
