Obviously I was going to start this blog by saying I. LOVE. FISH. We have walked this journey since 2014 and those of you who have been part of my tribe since then know in my heart of heart, the one meat I can comfortably eat every day for the rest of my life is fish. The variety is plenty. Each different fish tastes and feels different and I love love love that there are a billion ways to cook it too.
Tilapia has always been most common in this country. It has gained popularity in other countries as well over the recent years (which I noticed on twitter that they call Tilapia a lab animal and one that does not exist in real life (???) but I also understand in first world countries so much Genetic Modification happens such that one can live a full life without seeing or tasting the real thing). It is pretty affordable, super tasty and extremely flavorful. Today’s recipe is a take on one I made in 2016 – you can check it out here – with today spinning my original recipe and upgrading it very slightly, but in a manner that your palate will love!
Maybe I cook tilapia abit too often. Maybe I am too obsessed with this fish, as I am with all others. Maybe I can eat tilapia all day errday and not get bored. I love this fish and I hop on every chance I can get to prepare it and go hard! I love fish! I love tilapia!
This particular recipe was inspired by one my mom makes for us at home. She executed hers so well and I think I did almost as good with mine LOL! I of course added a few tweaks to mine and threw in some of my favorite ingredients and completely enjoyed it! I know you will love my chili lemon garlic tilapia too! I had fun filming the video, and went into great detail as well so do not forget to watch it too (and subscribe <3). Let me introduce you to what is about to be your latest obsession:
I really love fish. I can have it everyday for the rest of my days on earth. Nothing tastes more East African, more Kenyan or more home than some good old fish curry. I have noticed that in the western culinary world, it is almost considered a sacrilege to serve fish with skin soaked in soup, curry or anything else. But for me, I believe there are more than one ways of preparing a meal. Just because a certain part of the world thinks your way is wrong, that will not make your dish any less tasty . Besides, rules were made to be broken. 🙂
The past fish dishes such as this one and this one, I cooked with just fish fillet. However, not every Kenyan can access fillet too often due to its price and scarcity. Today I used a whole, unfilleted fish and I know every single one of you can find this :). This recipe is one you *MUST* try. Believe me, you will be blown away!
