Tilapia is always cheap when on sale or not. Accordingly, it is not the tastiest fish but is very versatile and can be doctored up pretty easily. This was a sauteed spinach stuffing rolled in tilapia filets that were then sprinkled with parmesan and panko before a quick bake.

We have made fresh Caesar dressing before and it was a huge hit. The one difference this time was using chopped canned anchovies instead of anchovy paste. I lightly floured and baked some shrimp and placed it atop sauteed veggies for a light and summery dinner salad. This would also be great to serve in a large quantity at a party or dinner.
Homemade sushi! It is not easy, but I am getting better. We have featured most of these other rolls before with a new guest this time of spicy tuna and salmon tempura roll.

We have been on a roll with Bon Appetit recipes recently and this is an adaptation of one. They have section where they recreate/figure out recipes from restaurants that readers request. This was an adaptation of their version of Mahi-Mahi with Tomato, Pepper, and Caper Sauce from Cabana in West Palm Beach.
I always love to order panang curry when I go to Thai restaurants. It has a slightly bolder flavor than the red, green or yellow curry dishes and is so tasty when paired with coconut milk. I once stumbled across a recipe for it online and I realized that just like making red or green curry it all begins with the paste.
