That Simple

posted on: Tuesday, April 15, 2008

Yesterday I had wanted to get dinner ready before heading out to the doctor with Enzo and before the afternoon because I had school in the afternoon. So, I had some talapia and decided to try something new. It took me 15 minutes total prep and cooking time. I love simple recipes and need to be reminded to use them more. I was inspired by the COSTCO cookbook but made modifications so here is my recipe.


  • 4 talapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup white grape juice
  • 3 tablespoons pesto
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. pour the juice on a frying pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the talapia fillets and cook in medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side
  3. when the fish is done cooking bring it down to a simmer
  4. mix the pesto, heavy cream and butter to make a sauce
  5. add the sauce to the fish fillets and let simmer for 2 minutes.
  6. add salt and pepper to taste and serve warm
I made it at 9:00 am and only had it at 6:00pm. All that time I had my house smelling like pesto. I love pesto so this is a good thing. I had a friend come over and comment that it was amazing I took Enzo to the doctor in the morning, was in school all afternoon, and had an elaborate dinner ready. I felt sneaky and didn't tell her that it actually was super easy and only took me 15 minutes. he, he, he


  1. Hi:

    Your receipe looks good, but I'd chose something other than tilapia next time. It's worse for you than donuts, hamburgers, or bacon. If you're interested you can learn more at
