Last time I had a post about fish, they were live and swimming around in a plastic bag (and then a pond). Today, the only ones I'm talking about are good and dead--and in my belly! I bought a 3 pound bag of tilapia fillets the other day, and I wasn't entirely sure how to go about cooking them. I decided to play it simple and bake them with some olive oil, a little vinaigrette, and some salt. Good, but maybe boring. The exciting way to spice it up?
Fruit salsa! Such a refreshing addition to fish. This particular one was made of diced mango, cucumbers, bell peppers, and strawberries. I tossed it with some vinaigrette (just a touch) but I think a squeeze of lemon or lime would be even better.
I got two meals out of this one.
1) Tilapia with wild rice, corn on the cob, and fruit salsa:
2) Baked tilapia tacos! All the same ingredients (minus the rice, + corn tortillas)
That fruit salsa made me feel so tropical, so I can pretend I'm relaxing on a beach somewhere tropical. Feel free to just eat it with a spoon too--it's that good!
Today may very well be my last visit to this gym, ever! My membership expires on Saturday, but we're living maybe 45 minutes away, so I only go if there's a reason to be in that area. Today, that reason is because we're buying faucets. Hooray!
One last picture for you guys because my fur babies are the cutest things in the whole world. Promise. Also, I may be turning into crazy cat lady. But they're just too stinking cute!
What's your favorite seafood?
Everything! Honestly, I love seafood. Sashimi is my favorite though, still looking for a good place nearby. And if there's shrimp at a buffet, just back away slowly and you'll be fine.
Are you a member of a gym? What percent of your workouts are in a gym (vs. outside, at home, etc.)
I am, but obviously not for much longer! I used to work out almost exclusively in a gym, but now it's less and less---maybe 20% right now?
