Since I have some tilapia filets to use up I was checking out my past recipes that I have marked as definitely make again! This recipe for White Chocolate Macadamia Crusted Tilapia had five stars... If you're a fan of Top Chef, you may remember this as a winning recipe which Red Lobster adapted and had on their menu a few years ago.
The Macadamia Crust mixture could be used on a variety of fish or chicken... my oldest son thought this was completely over the top! As you can see by the photo, in addition of putting the white chocolate mixture on the bottom, then plating the tilapia..I put it ALL OVER!!! ( Even on the baked potato) Trust me, there IS tilapia under all that sauce!! You do not get an overwhelming taste of chocolate, it's the infusion of all the ingredients of the sauce that makes it so velvety, smooth and utterly delicious. One word of caution, add the lemon juice slowly and taste as you go, the last thing you want is the lemon flavor to completely overtake the other ingredients.
Now to my garden... I have been filling my containers and the quantity seems to have grown some since last year! On the website Garden Buddies there is a gal from NH, Deanne, that does spectacular things with container gardening. She has been a pure inspiration on what I want to achieve with my containers. One of the favorite containers I make every year is Saturn Coleus..it grows so fast and gets huge! I'll keep you posted on the growth..here it is just starting out.... the smaller coleus is Versa Crimson Gold which I just put in for contrast.
