Sunday Dinner And A treat Not Done Lately...



I like fish. Almost any kind. Around here, fish has been scarce and expensive! I'm not Catholic, but I love Lent! Lent means cheaper, more plentiful fish to eat!
Today, we got some Tilapia, frozen fillets, but good stuff! I made a Parmesan, mayo, fresh lemon, spiced topping goo that was the whoop! Along with fresh asparagus, and fresh rolls- we were OK!
Later, I made home made caramel corn- sin with a crunch! Hope you all had good food sometime this week- we deserve it!

I would have to say that you were a little bit more than OK.....I think I will make some caramel corn - thanks for the idea..

DogB-We were geeked at the Parmesan/mayo/spiced sauce- this stuff was stupid good... The caramel corn was like goin' home...

Dr Zibbs said...

I was never a fan of frozen fish but tilapia is great frozen.

Jeanne said...

I've got some tilapia in the freezer I'm planning to make later this week. Would you like to throw out some general proportions on that sauce?

Scarlet said...

Tilapia and fresh asparagus...a winning combo!

You make me hungry for something healthy...and a little sin with a crunch for later.

Jen said...

I also love fish and would have it anyway it came.

CDB said...

YUM.. love tilapia!

I'm Catholic and always dreaded Lent b/c of what you had to give UP, thanks for the alternate view!

Jeff B said...

I don't know how our prices compare, but being on the west coast, we're able to get a pretty good assortment of fresh fish.

Even though it was cool and rainy today, I dusted off the BBQ and grilled some top sirloin. It was like a brief glimpse at summer for us.

doggybloggy said...

one question - what happened to the asparagus tips?

K said...

Thanks so much for the reminder it's lent. My current menu plan for friday isn't going to work at all (hubby is catholic).

Belle said...

Any seafood for me Buff.
Fish, squid, octopus, mussels, clams, lobster....

buffalodick said...

Doc- Me either, but it was a good deal!
Jeanne- Broil the fish for a short time before putting the sauce on, then take the sauce mixture(1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 cup grated Parmsean)other ingredients to taste..
Scarlett- They really did pair up well- in fact the sauce for the fish was very good on aspargus!
Jen- Me too!
CDB- Get ready for Fat Tuesday!
Jeff- We have 6-10 inches of snow on the ground yet- I can't wait to grill again..
DogB- Sharp eye! My kid did with his take out meal- I prefer the stalks anyway!
K- Good Luck- shouldn't be that bad...
Belle- I like the stuff that crawls around in the rocks, too!

Bina said...

I pretty much don't like any seafood, but Talipa? For some reason, I LOVE that stuff!!!!!

G-Man said...

It's all good Buff....Thanks.

buffalodick said...

Bina- About as mild and tender a fish as there is out there...
G-man- A light meal of fish was the right thing at the right time!

JihadGene said...

Looks good looong time!

Great Reader, KIM Jong IL

pinknest said...

what?! just okay? that's some serious goodness. and caramel corn to end it?! my favorite.

Chef E said...

I know I do gourmet style home cooking most of the time, but I like coming over her and Dog's for some good looking comfort food, although you both do some fantastic fancy stuff too! I had scallops two weeks in a row and now ready for some fishing...soon...

Marjie said...

I bought some fresh asparagus this weekend, too. We just love the stuff!

buffalodick said...

JG- Welcome to the blog!
Pink- Finally someone realizes the treat home made caramel corn is!
Chef- He's kind of Felix, and I'm kind of Oscar- the odd couple of blog cooking! He's innovative, a bug on presentation, and execution! I wing it, but have pretty good instincts...
Marjie I was impressed with the crispness this time of year..

doggybloggy said...

looks like someone left the door open... Chef E ..do tell when are we going to see this "gourmet" food you boast of - so far it looks like you cook for the county jail...

Roger said...

Sounds good to me!

TavoLini said...

mmm fresh rolls, asparagus, tilapia WITH PARMESAN, MAYO, and LEMON :D

Buffalo, this sounds like a dream dish! I'm looking forward to your lent posts, definitely!!

buffalodick said...

Rog- Hopefully Lent will bring more seafood deals!
Tavolini- I swear you could put that sauce on anything!

Heff said...

I'm not a HUGE fan of fish, but I have had Tilapia lately, myself. Good stuff !

Lulda Casadaga said...

BD- Your food looks de-lish as always...Now this Tilapia thing!
When did this fish become so popular? When I was growing up I never heard of it...:D Perhaps a great hispanic influence has us purchasing more T? I need some gourmet history lessons on this one! :D

Chef E said...

Buff you are a foodie in my circle...

Sticks and stones Dog- try throwin' a bone your own way!

Beth said...

now you're taking! I can eat some talapia!!! and that sounds good, with the goo stuff. and popcorn is alwaya on the menu at my house...

buffalodick said...

Heff- The fish is almost mild to a point of no flavor- but the sauce I made really worked..
Lulda- Fish farming in parts of the world shrip(Thailand)tilapia(Chile), etc. made fish more affordable, more plentiful, with a predictable, consistent flavor. People were interested in other cuisines-Japanese,Carribean, etc. which had a lot more seafood in them than the meat and potatoes we had grown up with. Health benefits from fish were touted- low calories, good oil, etc. A lot of things came together to make seafood more popular than ever!

buffalodick said...

Beth- The goo is similar to that hot artichoke dip that was popular 10-15 years ago- without the artichoke! Caramel corn is easy and delicious to make at home..

Anette said...

yes we do like our fish!

buffalodick said...

Anette- We once vacationed in the Florida Keys, and I got to eat fresh fish everyday! And that is exactly what I did!

Chef E said...

Buff- I just found out that Dog said you were not sure what I meant in that first blog, I was just being nice I do not feel I am better than you or him, so sorry...

TavoLini said...

Buffalo--I have looked FAR and WIDE, alas there is not a paczki to be found down here. And everyone looks at me crazy when I ask for them :)

buffalodick said...

Chef- No foul, no harm.. forget it..
Tavolini- They are everywhere in this town!

Sippity Sup said...

This is like a soap opera! Who will insult who next? GREG

buffalodick said...

SipSup- Nobody. I declare this feud over. They are are both great people, differing on issues- entitled to their opinions, and how they do things. Welcome to the blog- Opinions and Rectums! Opinions have always been welcome here- God made us different, with different lives, for a reason.. He is eternal- He must be bored out of his everlasting mind!

MarmiteToasty said...
