Hello,please help asap: I have bought a whole tilapia with scales, heads, and it has been gutted. Here is my questions I want to grill it. Do I scale it before I grill it? THank you Lynne Lindsay

yes, you must scale it before grilling it. The scales will remove themselves from the flesh when cooked and you can have the unpleasant sensation of having scales mixed with a forkful. Also, make sure they remove the gills. The gills affect the flavor. Enjoy.
