Broiled Salmon with Dijon Dill Sauce

Broiled Salmon with Dijon Dill Sauce

Guys, there is nothing wrong with taking shortcuts. Take this fantastic seafood feast that I [mostly] cooked for Yuseff and me one night. First,  I heated up some ready made Lobster bisque from the frozen seafood aisle, sliced some bakery-fresh sourdough bread, and served it as the first course to Stuffed Clams, that I got from … Continue reading

Pecan Crusted Tilapia

Pecan Crusted Tilapia

Something really unexpected happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I went into the basement to pull some tilapia out of our endless-bag-of-tilapia in the freezer. And pulled out the last two little fillets. That’s the funny thing about shopping at warehouse stores. You sort of take it for granted that it’ll be awhile … Continue reading

You know what I hate about trying new recipes with special ingredients? Okay. I’ll tell you. You end up buying a jar/bag/box/package of whatever that ingredient is and then it sits around waiting for the next time you make that dish. For example.

My original plan for last Wednesday night was to make Tilapia in a … Continue reading

Tilapia in a White Wine Sauce with Capers

I love tackling difficult recipes with ingredient lists as long as my arm, but sometimes we need to just stick to the basics and make something light and easy. Since we always have tilapia in the freezer and these few ingredients are staples that you’ll find in almost any kitchen, this is an easy weeknight meal that comes … Continue reading

Beer Battered Tilapia Sandwiches

I talk a lot about shopping at Costco. I realize this. My mom works there, and she talks about it a lot, so I guess I think it’s acceptable to bring up Costco on a near constant basis.  And… I’m about to talk about Costco again, because we love these individually packaged, frozen Tilapia Loins … Continue reading
