Sweet and Spicy Citrus Tilapia
Vacations are awesome, lots of relaxing, chatting with friends, staying up late, and eating, Eating, EATING. And not eating just any food, you're eating vacation food. I'm talking potato salad, french fries, cookies and brownies. All the Mexican food you can get your hands on, seeing as it's not so easy to get to in Philly. Lots of fast food and restaurant food, because who wants to cook, or DIET while on vacation? And it's fun...until you get home, when the last thing you want to see on this green earth is a hamburger.
So what do you do when you've just gotten home from vacation, and you're tired, and hungry and detoxing from a month of vacation-style eating? Enter tilapia from Cooking Light.
A quick trip to pick up some tilapia and limes and we were in business. One great thing about sea food is that it takes very little time to marinate and cook. Only fifteen minutes soaking in a sauce that is made of things you most likely already have, and fifteen to bake, and you have a fish that the whole family will hoover down. I could not believe how quickly both of my picky munchkins gobbled this up. My husband and I were also crazy about this dish, especially given that we aren't really that crazy about tilapia. But the flavor is wonderful and it's so healthy. You must give this a try! The recipe can be found here.
