Fish? Again?

Posted in Eggplant, Tilapia by apartmentfoodhobos on May 17, 2007



Since the beginning of time, man has yearned to broil eggplant and serve under swordfish.  Yet, since the beginning of time, yours truly has not been able to afford swordfish.  Well actually we’ve never bothered to look at how expensive it might be.  Because we are predictable losers who tread a well-worn path through the grocery store.  Tilapia will do, and this is tilapia.  A fish you can farm in your bathtub.  In fact we had 7 of them in the bathtub this morning, until the kitty-cat ate one for breakfast.

Here are the holy secrets of the photos above.

  • Sprinkle eggplant and tomato slices with curry powder or a masala blend and pepper.  Broil for a few minutes, turn over eggplant slices and broil the other side.  (Lightly oil the broiler pan or tinfoil.  If I made this again I would also lightly oil the vegetables also).
  • Pan saute the tilapia.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley.
  • Yup, thats it.
  • Nothing more to do.
  • Well, I guess you could serve it on a plate and eat it.
  • Better yet start BLOGGING about it.
  • Man, Austin is pretty nice this time of year.
  • Might go canoeing this weekend.
  • Well, write back soon and let me know how you’re doing.
