Pesto Tilapia

This recipe is easy, inexpensive and very tasty. You can purchase a jar of pesto next to the pasta in the grocery store. I serve this with rice and a salad or over angel hair pasta. The fish is also good in a sandwich. I hope you enjoy!

Pesto Tilapia


4 Tilapia fillets
Kosher salt, to taste
½ teaspoon of white pepper
½ cup of pesto (I use jar of pesto)
½ cup of freshly grated parmesan
Fresh Basil, chopped

How to make-
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking pan with aluminum foil. Season fish with salt and pepper. Spread pesto evenly on both sides of the fish. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until flaky. Top with parmesan cheese; bake for an additional 2 minutes. Top with fresh basil.

Basmati Rice Salad

This salad is great for using up those great summer tomatoes and corn.  This salad goes great with just about anything.  It is very simple and yummy. We have added grilled shrimp to this dish and it was delish and nutrish.

1 cup basmati rice

2 cups water

1\2 teaspoon salt

4 ears of corn, kernels cut from the cob

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tomatoes, seeded and diced

¾ cup of red onion

3 green onions, chopped


1 tablespoon olive oil

½ lemon, juiced

 ¼ cup Red wine vinegar

¼ cup olive oil

½ tablespoon sugar

¼ cup minced fresh basil

Salt and pepper to taste


 Preheat oven to 375. In a medium pot bring rice and water to a boil, add salt, cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for twenty minutes. Toss corn with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and bake on a baking sheet for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Combine rice, corn, tomatoes, red and green onion in a large boil.  Mix all ingredients for dressing.  Pour desired amount of dressing over rice and corn mixture. Cover and chill at least one hour before serving.
