i am so totally laughing! hey, your mentioning of thawing tilapia the other day made me want to ask--how do you cook it? I am trying to add more fish into my family's diet, but can't find anything to tempt them. I'd love any help you can give!
Melanie, this is one of my all-time favorite recipes: yummy, easy, fast. Peter doesn't like fish, and he likes this. The only differences in how I make it are: 1) I melt the butter most of the way in the microwave in a small bowl first and add the other ingredients to it (it's easier to mix if the butter's melted and it melts when you spread it on the hot fish anyway), 2) I cheat with bottled lemon juice most of the time instead of fresh, 3) I use garlic salt instead of the celery salt because I've never owned celery salt, and 4) I add somewhere around 1/2 cup to 1 cup of sliced or chopped celery to it. Oh, also, I buy the tilapia filets frozen in a big box at WalMart and they're pretty thin, so I actually broil them for even less time than this says, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side, then add the topping and broil another 2-3 min until the topping starts to brown. If you do it with the thicker tilapia loins like they sell at Costco, then the longer time in this recipe is more accurate. I guess another difference is I use grated Pecorino Romano cheese instead of Parmesan. I get it in a big block at Costco and it lasts forever in the fridge. But I've even made it before with the kind of Parmesan that comes in the green can and it's still pretty tasty.
I've been having such fun reading your blog, I think you are a wonderful writer. jeanette benedict
Theoretically I've been subscribed to your blog for a long time, but it's not reliable. For instance, I never saw this post, and I almost missed your two most recent ones. I need to check every day.Love you!
