Recipe by Linda E.

I had one extra fillet of tilapia and was looking for a recipe to make it for lunch. I ended up drawing inspiration from recipes I saw and creating a new one to suit my own tastes (and what was easily accessible in my kitchen). Try it and let me know what you think! Easily expanded for more fillets. I did not measure exact amounts, but I estimated them in the recipe.
