Reality:Recipe: Tilapia with Scallion Sriracha Pesto
Time: 30 min
Those of you that know me, know that I love most seafood and will most likely choose that over any other kind of meat. This was a fairly simple dish to make. The green beans are as simple as adding some water in a bowl, saran wrap over the top, and poking a few holes while cooking in the microwave. They used to come in these bags and you just placed them in the microwave, which was super convenient so I’m not sure why they resorted to this process except money-saving.
The first thing I would like all viewers to notice when looking at the difference in photographs is the color of the rice. The recipe calls for adding soy sauce to the jasmin ginger rice. Please tell me how the white doesn’t change color when a dark sauce is mixed with it?! Second, to me, the picture of their tilapia looks baked and not cooked in a pan.
So, as you can see, I rated this a whopping five stars and it is well-deserved based on the flavor. I mean, a recipe that has me wanting more of the pesto (which has majority scallions when I don’t like scallions) is an A+ in my book. One thing to note that I did for the pesto was I accidentally added 1 TBS of sugar instead of one TSP, but I think I actually preferred my way. It was the perfect helping of meat, carbs, and veggies. Especially around Lent, this was perfect.
