Looking for something impressive but oh so easy? This simple and delicious dish would make a great 'date night' dinner or even doubled for a dinner party. Tilapia is a really mild fish without that 'fishy' taste making this a great recipe for people who do not like fish and a wonderful meal for those who do! Pesto and tomatoes are so lovely and aromatic together and roasting allows the flavors to intensify. What a simple way to create an incredibly delicious dish. In order to soak up every delicious drop I would serve this over a simple rice like my Recipe#137364 or serve it with a good crusty bread. Adding a simple green salad and a wonderful bottle of wine would make this meal totally rock! I would serve it with Chateau Ste Michele Dry Riesling. I found this recipe on http://ellysaysopa.com/2008/03/03/fish-for-people-who-dont-like-fish/ Of course I did change up a few things that I thought would make it even better. My mouth was watering so much when I read this recipe that I had to share it with you as fast as I could! If you try this before I get to the store and am able to make it please let me know what you think! After Breezermom's helpful comment I edited the directions for the pesto and lemon juice so the pesto is not runny. Thanks breezer!
Salmon is a staple in the Pacific Northwest and this simple meal is perfect for special company or a nice Sunday family dinner. For the perfect spring time dinner party, accompany with Mushroom and Wild Rice Pilaf, Stir-Fried Asparagus & Sugar Snap Peas and Strawberry, Goat Cheese and Pine Nut Salad. These recipes are adapted from a magazine called Taste which is put out be various alcohol distributors. Needless to say - serve this witha well chilled Chardonnay or Pinto Grigio.
BTW - there's a lovely new US Pinot Grigio out that's crisp & refreshing with overtones of citrus & green apple. Very good price point too. It's Barefoot Pinot Grigio.
This is my version of Ruby Tuesday's New Orleans Tilapia. Tilapia fillets are baked then topped with alfredo sauce, sauteed red peppers and garlic cooked shrimp. I'm not very good at copycatting recipes, but we had this last night and it was mighty fine.
This is a fabulous recipe for oven fried tilapia slightly adapted from Paul Prudhomme's wonderful "Fork In The Road" lower fat cookbook. I served this for dinner with family and it got rave reviews. Even my picky 5 year old eater enjoyed it. The ingredient list here is long, but is mostly spices. Please don't be put off, this is wonderful stuff and once you get the spice mixture combined, quite easy to make.
This slow method of cooking salmon produces a fish that is very evenly cooked and still moist throughout. The rich sauce with hints of tarragon, lemon and beer adds to the flavour of the whole dish. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. From the LCBO magazine.
