Thai Tilapia

It’s time to attone for all our sinful eating pleasures over the weekend  with a LOT of fish.  It’s always fun toodling around with Mickey & Niki – one problem – Niki’s never been to Chicago.  We HAD to share all the food delights the city is know for.  Let’s see, we had Kuma’s, Gino’s, a Chicago Dog or two, Blackies and homemade cheesecake (post to come soon) to name just a few of this past weekends delights – Now we must pay the price with some healthy eating and some good fitnessin’!

This is a great Thai recipe.  I found it on Closet Cooking and it has crept into our rotation frequently.  It says to bake, but I’ve found it cooks up quick in a saute pan.  If you have the ingredients it really goes together quickly – serve it with jasmine rice that’s been cooked with chicken broth.


Thai Tilapia

Marinade for an hour or just throw it all in a skillet and simmer until the fish is flaky:

2-3 Tilapia Fillets

Handful Chopped Cilantro

1/4 Cup Tamerind Juice

2 Tbsp Minced Garlic

2 Tbsp Sugar

1/2 tsp Shrimp Paste

3 Tbsp Fish Sauce 

Sliced Ginger about thumb sized

1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper

Serve with more chopped cilantro and a slice of lime.
