Does anyone love/prefer tilapia to other common raved-about seafood?

Tilapia was on sale at Whole Foods today and I had no idea what I wanted to make but wanted seafood and had already planned to have both tuna and salmon this weekend

I am on a seafood kick this weekend. This morning I stood at the seafood counter dazed and confused as I already planned to have both tuna, shrimp salmon this weekend and couldn't decide on another option to satisfy my ocean-loving needs. In casual conversation at the counter, another customer and the person at the counter recommended tilapia and raved about how much they liked it. It was on sale and so I went for it and now have about 2 lbs of tilapia I have no idea what to do with although they suggested that nearly any preparation works as it's so mild. As I Googled to find a good idea it seemed that the majority of the world has some vendetta against tilapia. I love the heartier, more naturally flavored fish and eat tuna, salmon, and swordfish quite regularly because they are so wonderful, but I thought I might add another fish to my repertoire. I understand the concerns about its production, but separate from those concerns do you ever choose tilapia over something else not only for price but because you like it's flavor. What are your favorite preparations?
