Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Tzatziki sauce is a traditional Greek yogurt-based sauce with cucumber and mint. If you don't want to make it, look for it in the refrigerated section of the deli area of large supermarkets.
  • tip 2
    When cooked, the lean white flesh of the tilapia is sweet, mild, tender and has no "fishy" flavor. The tilapia at your market may be from a fish farm in this country or from the fresh waters of Colombia or Costa Rica.
