Hello faithful readers and sorry again about the lack of posts here on Monkeying Around The Kitchen. Between an avalanche of work and a trip back home for a family reunion this weekend, blogging just wasn’t in the picture. However, I did cook and have plenty of pictures to post and recipes to write about. Take this one for Broiled Tilapia Parmesan from All Recipes. I whipped this one up a week or two back and was surprised with how easy and tasty it was.
Fish is one of those ingredient types that I don’t necessarily have a ton of experience with and said experience is hit and miss. But, I’ve had pretty good luck with fish recently. This was one of those cases. All you really need to do for this recipe is buy fish, toss a bunch of ingredients in a bowl, pour the sauce on the fish and broil. Said sauce includes mayo, lemon juice, butter, Parmesan cheese, basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt.
As you can see in the picture, I busted out the Magic Bullet to grind up the Parm. I haven’t tried this before, but it wound up working pretty well. I really like using fresh grated cheese, but when you’re dealing with a huge amount of it, the ol’ arm can feel like it’s gonna fall off which is no good.
Anyway, cheesy fish is apparently good, though I wasn’t so sure it would be. I could have even gotten a few more filets than I did because my wife and I dug it and so did the baby. I’ll definitely give this one another try.
