  1. I make tilapia pretty regularly because it's one of DH's favorite types of fish, so I wanted to try this out for a change. We enjoyed it, but we still prefer my usual preparation (a variation on the Veracruz theme). I would make this again, but I think I would season the fish fillets a bit before adding the topping -- I had really large tilapia, and the fish itself seemed a bit bland underneath all that flavorful topping. I served this with some broiled asparagus and Mexican rice, so a nice dinner all around. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2013


<p>I love to cook! My mother taught Boy's Foods at our local high school when I was growing up, and thus my brother, my father and I all spend a lot of time in the kitchen creating. Fortunately when I experiment in the kitchen I have a lot more hits than misses (at least according to my wife). <br /> <br />I am the father of 2 grown kids (college) and a step-kid (about the same age) and very happily married! I worked as an agriculture researcher (hence the public name) for 20 years. I now work for the Knights of Columbus. <br /> <br />To relax I like to draw and play guitar, and of course, cook. Sometimes I think the artist in me comes out in the kitchen in how I create some new dishes. My only downfall is that I don't document what I am doing very well. So sometimes I have a great dish; but may have a hard time re-creating it. <br /> <br />I was taught to be a good cook one must taste what they are cooking. A recipe is a guideline for the dish, but don't be afraid to color outside the lines. I have often pondered getting formal training in the culinary arts - but in the mean time we (my wife and I) watch a lot of the Food Network. Recipezaar has be a great resource too. <br /> <br />Please feel free to rate my posted recipes! You suggestions would be greatly appreciated</p>
