I’m trying to be adventurous. I’m a fairly picky eater and I tend to stay away from meats and fish, but I’ve been trying to branch out. When my boyfriend orders meat or seafood at a restaurant, I’ll try a bite. It’s a big step for me. Usually I’m not a huge fan of what he orders, but most things are not as bad as I remember them being. To take my adventures in eating new foods even further, I decided to prepare fish for lunch today. Fish is a healthier meat than red meat like burgers or steak so I figured if I was going to try to make meat, it might as well be a healthy type.
The fish wasn’t so bad. I used a lot of spices to make a sort of “blackened tilapia,” so the flavor of the fish was somewhat masked. Baby steps are a good thing, I think. So I’m here to present to you today, Spicy Tilapia: A Fish Recipe Told by a Vegetarian. Basically this is a beginner’s guide to cooking fish. I’m new at it, but I can do it so you can too!
