These crispy tilapia bites take only five minutes to cook thanks to the convection mode! Paired with cilantro crema and a variety of toppings on a tostada, this recipe is a people pleaser for dinner (even for the fish haters)! Since the Anova Precision Oven used a probe, the fish will be perfectly done, without guesswork, and not over cooked.
