I know, wow, that's not a great photo. It was a great dinner though! Although, i must admit i made it too spicy for my very-chapped-from-mouth-breathing-with-allergies lips. Tonight's dinner will be bland.
This dinner was easy to do and i did all the prep during commercial breaks of my still favorite show, House. The pesto was an experiment using the last of my Genovese basil and some shelled, raw pistacios. I simply blended the basil, pistacios - about a half cup to about 2 cups basil, salt and some olive oil. Wammo, and really interestingly tasty. I think i'll try more pestos with these flavorful and already green nuts - really adds another dimension to the pesto.
Tilapia with Pesto:
- 4 thawed tilapia filets
- 8 ice cubes or about 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 large garlic clove, diced
- about 5 oz pesto
- 2 serranos, diced. 2 too many this time around. Ouch.
Good, i tell ya. Real good and saucy. The rice absorbed the sauce and the peas swam around with whatever sauce was left and plates were licked clean!
