Tilapia

Hello! This might surprise some of you that I would ever cook fish on my own. Well, I need some more food options in my life and figured fish was easy. Tonight’s dinner definitely proved that it was a good choice! I love teriyaki sauce and figured why not try it on fish. I have never made fish so I didn’t know what to expect, but I would say this was a success.

I put my Tilapia in a zip lock bag and poured in some teriyaki sauce and let the fish soak in it for a few minutes. Depending on how much of the teriyaki taste you want, you can leave in longer to marinate. I have zero patience so it was in the bag for about 5 minutes. I took it out and put it into a baking dish. I had some cut up pineapple left so I added some pineapple chunks to the baking dish as well. I cooked it for about 20 minutes on 350. As a side dish I made white rice with peas and carrots. I also put some teriyaki in the rice to keep the flavors consistent. Below is my masterpiece! No recipe to follow, just all on my own. I would say I did good!

Well some success had to come with some failure. I tried making dairy free ice cream for dessert using a frozen banana, cocoa powder, some almond milk, and peanut butter. Horrible, horrible, horrible. I think my failure was in the amount of cocoa powder I used. Unfortunately, this got thrown down the drain because I could only get a taste before spitting it out. Sorry for the gross details, but just keeping it real.

Eat the fish, not the ice cream.
