Nilasing in Filipino translates to “intoxicated by alcohol” or “drunk”. The Nilasing na Tilapia Recipe almost holds the same meaning in a way. Nilasing na Tilapia is a very simple dish that only requires a few steps and ingredients. Frying is involved so the fish(tilapia) gets to be really crispy on the outside and very tender, and savory on the inside.
