    Default Last days of jan

    Going to clean out the small side freezer so I can put the next weeks foods up here .. So with that in mind I have to use up whats in there (except for the tilipia its fresh)

    MON JAN 26: I managed to get tilipia for $1.99 a pound (*I should have bought more )
    TILIPIA
    going through the recipes here:
    Tilapia Recipes

    and here:
    Best Tilapia Recipes - Top 20 Tilapia Recipes

    think I'll do the quicky BROILED TILIPIA
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    3 tablespoons mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon onion powder
    1/8 teaspoon celery salt
    2 pounds tilapia fillets
    Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
    In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
    Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
    TIPS: Spray w/olive oil, reduce mayo, add paprika, add bread crumbs to cheese mixture

    mighty fine eats there, girlfriend I had my 'fish-fest' last week with the sales and stocked the freezer. I'm cleaning out, too so that I have room for all of my lovely fish deals! LOL!

    Mos,
    I should have 'thunk' when I picked the tilipia up that $1.99 was a good price and gotten more - didn't realize it normally goes for $6+ a pound .. Went back today to get some and saw the 'real' price, apparently the stuff the other day was a mismark

    Ria, don't you love it when somebody screws up and you reap the rewards?! LOL! enjoy, girlfriend! I was really glad last week that somebody 'over-ordered' and I found such lovely purchases in the mark-down bin. I truly believe that I could live off of seafood
