A light, healthy, and delicious tilapia dinner

Here's an amazing fish recipe that we recently tested out. It's light, healthy and delicious! And since we are getting married in less than one month we're looking for all the healthy, light meals possible. Ingredients 1 tilapia fillets 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp anchovy paste 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon 1 cup parsely 3 cloves garlic Instructions Preheat the oven to 350°. Place the fish in a baking dish. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, anchovy paste and parsley, and pour over the fish to coat it. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. In the last three minutes of cooking feel free to add some spinach or asparagus to your baking dish for your vegetables. Now, sit down and enjoy! I really, really, really wanted a glass of wine with this but since I was going to work out later in the evening I couldn't. But...if you have a free evening to relax this would be even more divine with a glass of Pinot Grigio. Ah bliss!

Amalfi Coast: Italian Dream Part Four
July 24, 2009 at 9:20 am 0
Amalfi Coast I had huge expectations for the Amalfi Coast. I thought it was the playground of the rich and famous, a place where the elite go to relax and enjoy beautiful views and a warm culture. As it turns out I was wrong. It wasn’t so fancy (neither am I since I don’t even know where the fancy people go!), there were no Italians, and it seemed like a beautiful landscape that earned a great reputation many years ago and has held onto the reputation that is now no longer warranted. Don’t get me wrong, the scenery is outstanding, but if you want to go out and about and discover the towns be prepared to pay a fortune for anything and be englulfed in the crowds of middle aged Brits and Americans – not the charming old Italian grandmothers and friendly locals that I was expecting. To find something less touristy we drove into the hills one night for dinner. There were still many tourists in Ravello, but I was distracted by my delicious meal. I had the best fish I’ve ever eaten – it was grilled and came with a fresh mint, olive oil and lemon sauce on top that was heavenly. I still daydream about it. After spending two days in Priano, Positano and Amalfi I was happy to get back on the beautiful and twisty rounds and move to our next destination. Stay Tuned: My favourite city is next!
