I'm having people over for dinner tonight. I need something quick and easy because after working the whole day and trying to squeeze in a spin class, I'm going to have all of about 15 minutes to make dinner.
Enter fish. Namely, tilapia. It only needs to marinate for a few minutes, cooks quickly, and tastes delicious. I know this because I tested this recipe last week and it was damn good. Then I posted a picture of it on Facebook and told my friends that's what they were having.
That's what happens when you invite yourself to dinner in the G+F house. You get what I want to eat.
It's the simplest recipe and I'm sure works well with any white-fleshed fish. The marinade permeates completely, leaving a sweet, tangy, and flaky filet. Add a side of sautéed greens and a some roasted cauliflower: it's a gourmet meal.
In less time than it'll take to finish the first round of beers.
Honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar in equal measure, and a garlic clove. 25 minutes in the marinade, 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees, and that's it.
