pan fried tilapia with pesto
I really had a taste for some Puttanesca yesterday so I stopped by the market on the way home and bought myself some anchovies. I picked up some tilapia thinking they will come in handy during the week. I couldn't make pasta puttanesca so I decided to use some shrimp I had left over from last week. I started the puttanesca sauce and starting peeling the shrimp. I thought they had a fishy aroma but I just put them in the sauce anyway. I tried one and spit it right out. STINKY! I bought the shrimp last Tuesday. I think they went bad. Shrimp Puttanesca went down the garbage disposal and there goes my dinner idea. Thank goodness for the tilapia I had just bought. I pan fried the tilapia and added a dollop of pesto on top. I also had some grilled veggies left over from Passover dinner, I chopped those up and mixed them in with Romain lettuce. Josh who is not a fish lover even said, "what did you bread the fish with? This is really good!" My response, "nothing, I just pan fried it." I think I did pretty good considering tilapia with pesto was plan "B" when plan "A" failed.
