I was a vegetarian for more than 10 years of my life.
During that time, I lost my taste for a lot of foods that I once enjoyed.
Most seafood is in that category. I used to love all seafood – fish, lobster, scallops, you name it. My preference just never came back, no matter how often I forced myself to try.
Last fall, I tasted tilapia for the first time. I was at a banquet buffet; I only knew it was pecan-crusted something. It was delicious.
Since then, I’ve tried tilapia a few times, just to make sure, and I’ve liked it every time. I decided it was time for the next step.
I told Joe that we should have tilapia for dinner some night.
I found this recipe in Everyday Food magazine. It used some other fishier-tasting fish, but we always make adjustments anyway.
We used Holland House white wine vinegar to bump this recipe up from good to great.
You can also follow Holland House on Facebook, where you’ll find lots of recipes and tips.
Have you ever tried tilapia?
I work with Mizkan as a Blogger Advocate. Mizkan compensated me to use and write about Holland House cooking wines and vinegars as well as other products.
