some thing is fishy



Its Tilapia all around. When I find a deal on something everyone has to be ready to eat it till I am tired of it. By now you have noticed it must be tilapia, this perch like fish is mild and cheap and you can get it whole or already in filets by the boat load plus people who dont like the 'fishyness' of fish will be easily won over by tilapias overwhelming mildness. This was seasoned with an dried herb mix of paprika, white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, celery salt, tarragon, dried parsley and a bit of lemon zest. Pan fried in a little canola oil then served with a puree of haricot vert(these were not just ordinary green beans) a tomato couli and a side of fingerling potatoes. Light, satisfying and full of flavor. Just in case you are wondering Skate is cheaper and it is served way more often in nice places, I can get Skate for less than 2 bucks a pound if I want to clean it myself (remove the skin is all). Thing is, I dont like skate, but if people do I will make it and I have! I like to sear it first then.....oh never mind this is all about tilapia.



Lightly sauteed haricot vert with garlic
(it is a longer more intensely green bean)
that was then pureed. (I did all the chewing
for you)




A dish ready to go. I made this for four.
Omit the potato and this is no carb.



Honest Menu in a PC world

Todays Tilapia
Emotionaly and physically abused tilapia overly seasoned and burned till lightly brown. Innocent vegetables forced to be grown for consumption then tortured with heat and blades until rendered smooth. Potatoes too young to even be considered yanked from the soil and boiled.

I agree with you about the Talapia. I tried it for the first time this year and I really did like it. But for some reason it didn't look as good as yours did.

We eat a lot of talapia. My bride loves to broil it and it is good blackened. Our fish kick right now is halabit, my friend brought me maybe 50 pounds of fillets from his Alaska fishing trip. She did some sort of crusty corn meal thing last Friday that was on the money.

DogB- I like skate, but we don't see it here much, and it sure ain't $2 a pound! They kind of run over it with a tenderizer after it's skinned, which seems to help...

Love talapia! You make me hungry everytime I come out here.

Bina said...

The taste you described is EXACTLY why I like Tilapia! And the way you cooked it looks excellent! We usually just blacken ours, but I'll have to try it this way, too!

Michelle Ann said...

I adore Tilapia and it makes great fish tacos. :)

Real Live Lesbian said...

I ADORE tilapia! Perfect platation on those babies, too! Looks divine!

Anette said...

Actually I don't really know what Talapia is except that it is a fish, and looks (according to Wikipedia) like something that belongs in a fish tank..
But seeing your photos, Yes please, I'll have some!

Barrie said...

That is so weird. Because "haricot vert" does mean "green bean" in French.

Michelle said...
