Adapted this from a recipe in "Cuisine at Home". The original included shrimp in the sauce, and served on a bed of sauteed collard greens. It was excellent, but I needed something simpler for everyday dining.
I'm not fond of fish, but even I like this dish. Tilapia is mild, and the spicy crust is very appealing. I like to make the crumb crust in bulk and freeze in meal sized amounts. Then this becomes a super quick weeknight meal.
Adpated from "Simply THAI Cooking" by Wandee Young and Byron Ayanoglu. This excellent beef curry is a bit time consuming to prepare. The complex seasonings, though, are a real treat, and make this dish worth the time invested. I've tweaked slightly as the portion sizes were a bit small in my family's opinion. Otherwise, the recipe is a published in the book.

Found this recipe on a package of chicken breasts, been making it from memory ever since. Very tasty, and very easy. Great weeknight meal with mexican rice and salad. Hearty eaters may want tortillas, too.
This tomato salsa is mild - double the jalepeno peppers for hot salsa. It's important to use commercial lemon and lime juice to assure the finished salsa is acidic enough to can safely. Fresh squeezed juice can vary in acidity.
A nice addition to burgers or hot dogs. And very pretty for gift giving. You could substitute green bell peppers for the red ones, but it wouldn't be as attractive. You can also substitute zucchini for part of the cucumbers if desired.
We like this as a sandwich spread. The amount of peppers is really a total of sweet and hot. You can make it hotter or milder by shifting the ratio. As written, it's moderately spicy. From The Joy of Pickling.
