When we took Ryan to college, we went out for an early dinner after setting up his dorm room. While proceeding down a major road, Ryan spotted a Red Lobster and exclaimed that he'd always wanted to try one, so in we turned. He enjoyed visiting with the tank of lobsters (which are high in cholesterol), but we all chose something else for our meals. I had a tilapia dish which was very nice, and proceeded to attempt to replicate it at home. Here's my approximation:
TILAPIA IN PARCHMENT
Carrots, sliced and simmered for a few minutes
artichoke hearts, quartered
grape tomatoes, cut in half
butter or margarine
I enjoyed this because I could leave out whatever each of us doesn't like, and size each packet to the person for whom it was being prepared. The downside is that it takes a little while to layer and seal each one, but that's the price you pay for not having to cook all the side dishes, right? Everyone enjoyed it, so much so that I've cooked it twice in the past month.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
