Fish Dish

If you like fish, you might like this dish. It is a very economical talapia and vegetable dish. Fish, potato, and carrots all garnished with dill and garlic. Lots of garlic.

I used to think that talapia fillets were super thin. I guess the ones I bought were. Recently we bought some talapia loins at sam’s. These were about half an inch thick. More like the whitefish I like at a talapia price.

The prices were good on carrots and potatoes too. Dill is an herb and you are going to be out two or more bucks for a bit of dill. We splurged and got on the those large containers of dill.

The vegetables are baked. Line a pan with aluminum foil. Drizzle in some oil to cover the bottom of the foil. Cannola is fine. Olive is better. Slice up some garlic cloves. I know everyone says to crush them. I find slicing them thin works too. Peel one large russet potato and cut in half lengthwise. Cut one half in half lengthwise again and cut quarter inch thick slices from it. Save the other half of the potato for some other time.

Peel some carrots. Four medium sized carrots will do. Cut them into sections about two inches long. If the carrots are bigger than an inch in diameter cut them in half lengthwise.

Now put all the vegetables in the pan. You should have as many carrots as potatoes. Cover the vegetables with the thinly sliced garlic. Sprinkle everything with dill and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for half an hour. Cover the pan with aluminum foil.

Pour a small quantity of oil into a large skillet and heat it on low. Add some thinly sliced garlic to the oil and let it heat until the garlic starts to fry. Now add the fish. Give it about five minutes per side and cook it with a lid on the skillet. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper. Both sides. When the fish is turned over in the skillet sprinkle it with dill. One side only.

The fish could have been baked along with the vegetables. The only problem is that the vegetables need thirty minutes and the fish only takes ten minutes. I don’t care for over cooked food.

Fish and vegetables are quick and easy to fix. Everything tastes better with dill on it. This recipe serves two. Cost is about three dollars a serving and the food is every bit as good as what you would expect at a fancy thirty dollar a plate dinner.
