    For Group 2



    I have made Crafty Lady's Greek Roasted Tilapia Fillets (Low Fat). We don't get Tilapia in NZ so I sub'ed John Dory Fillets which is a very soft mild white fish. I'm not sure how strong Tilapia taste is, but the garlic over-powered the John Dory to my taste, however DH thought it was delicious and even had the remaining fillet cold for lunch the next day and was still raving about it.

    Live Tilapia is banned in Australia (considered an introduced pest) but I spotted some frozen fillets a few years ago so have tried both. It's actually even milder than John Dory, really a bit bland by itself in my opinion so probably does need a fair bit of flavour to perk it up.

    wave.gif Hi Kathy

    Tilapia is a very white fish that really doesn't taste "fishy" at all to me. It's very mild and takes on the flavours of whatever it is cooked with.

    A local fish market near us sells tilapia fillets in sauce that you just wrap in foil and bake in the oven. To me it just looks like fish and tastes like the sauce.

    I would much rather have barramundi anyday

    hahahahahahaha wouldnt we all!! I think it tastes like the cheapo fillets from IGA, they tend to taste like their sauce, but good in a pinch, and cheap.
    I used to make great fish cakes with freshwater catfish, until I was told that NO Australian eats freshwater catfish.
    so now I dont tell em icon_smile.gif

    Reminds me of my DM, about 2 or so years ago she declared she does not like fish (though I can remember us going down to Subiaco and getting fish and chips every Friday night for years and she was certainly eating it the first 7 or so years with us and oh salmon is not fish because it is not white, yes she will eat salmon), so our solution is we don't tell her it is fish we just say what specieis it is, be it snapper, flathead, groper etc. and she eats it quite happily - go figure.

    Pat- your mother reminds me so much of my father.

    My Dad wont eat anything he thinks is "foreign".........but he loves Italian and Chinese meals. He wont eat white sauce, so we add cheese and tell him it's cheese sauce icon_lol.gif

    Group 3 -- DOGGONE !!

    Spent the afternoon making BK's "Tasty Meat & Potato Soup" only to discover I made and reviewed it previously !! No matter -- will look for another. I LOVE making soup -- kinda like therapy, like my knitting ! It is STILL delicious, and will keep this recipe in an easily findable place ! Winter is long !

    To Crafty Lady and all -- we LOVE tilapia It is a very mildly sweet fish which does lend itself to many recipes, but we like it best sauteed in some butter with lemon and dill. THEN you can taste the mild flavors !
    No doubt, I would love to have barramundi instead ! We were introduced on a visit to Australia years ago, but could never find it here. In the past year, we have frozen fillets at Big Box stores, but at twice the price of tilapia. I do get it for a special treat, and think of our evening in Cairns and the first taste ! (Also intrroduced to Morton bay Bugs -- YUMMMMM!) icon_biggrin.gif

    Me too. When we wintered over in Qld a few years back a special treat was to drive up to Noosa and get Barra and chips from this fabulous Fish shop just on the outskirts. Deep fried and served with great chips in a cardboard box. Heavenly!!

    Just got home from work and have so enjoyed your fish stories! (No pun intended, really!)

    I accept Tilapia since it's so common here and am now intrigued by Barramundi. No one mentioned Orange Roughy? I thought that fish is Aussie? I've embraced it in the past but not so much lately.

    I think orange roughy is more and more being sold as sea perch or deep sea perch. It's commonly available in our stores

    It's expensive here and considered a delicacy. We buy it frozen. icon_smile.gif

    Aunt Esther was our fussy eater.
    I made a tray of enchiladas one night and she stared at it suspiciously until
    one of my daughters told her it was Mexican lasagne. She wolfed it down.

    I''ve made Chef Buggsy Mate's wonderful Best BLT Pasta Salad. #365938
    It really does taste like a BLT—and so easy to make.
    Sorry there isn't a photo. My camera conked out in the aftermath of our travels.
    Off to the camera shop to see if the problem is covered by the warranty.
