Cooking Fish...

Is not as easy as it looks! Lol. I got a great deal on a big bag of talapia fillets, and I was really excited to try it. I think I've had tilapia once or twice before maybe at a restaurant, but have never cooked it at home. I unthawed it in the fridge, then rinsed and patted them dry like the directions said, then I put it in a pan with a tiny little bit of olive oil, and I just let it cook with a little bit of garlic. It took a little longer to brown than I would've thought, maybe next time I try I'll have the heat on a little higher. As I tried to flip it, the fillet sort of fell apart. At the end, it just turned into pretty much fish sticks and fish chunks LOL, but it was delicious. I was surprised at how mild it tasted, because when I rinsed it and as it was cooking, it smelled a lot like fish. Overall I enjoyed it, and I will have it again soon. For my vegetables, I had a little bit of leftover spaghetti squash, with some spray on butter, and a little salad made of spinach and Romaine, with pinenuts and three tomatoes lol. A tasty dinner!

Tomorrow is weigh-in day. I hope hope hope hope hope I've lost 3 pounds so that I can be at a 20 pound loss. I know I can't expect a big loss every week, but 3 pounds would make me really really happy. I guess we'll see in the morning!

  1. Fish recipe: glass baking pan, rinse frozen filet just to remove extra water it is frozen in. Coat with olive oil and place in baking dish. Sqeeze juice of 1/2 lime or lemon over fish and sprinkle with black pepper and dill weed. Bake at 350 for about 10 min or until opaque. Drain juices into saucepan and boil to reduce to half valume. Pour over fish and enjoy!
