Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


tilapia with roasted spring vegetables.

My love affair with fennel continues.  I got 2 more bulbs recently and made one into my favorite salad (seen here) and the other I roasted with carrots and red onions.  It was perfect with some citrus tilapia for an unusually warm spring after work dinner.
citrus tilapia.
juice of 1/2 lemon
juice of 1/2 orange
juice of 1/2 lime
salt and pepper to taste
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp red chili flakes
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley or cilantro for garnish
Add all ingredients (except paprika and parsley) to a bowl.  Add tilapia and marinade 30 minutes.  This is a good time to start on the vegetables!  On a small baking dish lined with foil (hello, clean up), add tilapia and sprinkle with paprika.  Roast with veggies about 15 minutes.  Top with fresh parsley to serve.

3 carrots, ends chopped and cut into 2 inch pieces

Preheat oven to 400 degrees before chopping.  Add veggies to a large baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  When oven is to temp, add veggies and roast 30-40 minutes.  Add a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley to serve.
