Need Suggestions on what side dishes to serve with tortilla crusted Tilapia?
I have some tortilla crusted tilapia and could not think of some good sides to go with it? Any suggestions for something very tasty that is a good complement?
I absolutely second the cilantro rice.
When I make tortilla-crusted tilapia, I serve it w/cucumber mango salsa (cucumber, mango, cilantro, serrano, red onion, vinegar, garlic, S&P) and cheddar-serrano mashed potatoes. I heat up some half-and-half w/small bits of serrano, simmer until the flavors mix, add some butter, melt, pour over boiled potatoes, add some cheddar, and mash away. Fish and potatoes usually aren't served together, it seems (except for fish and chips), but they're a lovely combination. The pseudo-Tex-Mex flavors work really well together in the dishes I mentioned.
>Filo wrapped chorizo bites with creamy corn sauce
>gazpacho (in a small ramekin on the plate)
>creamed corn with fresh jalapenos seasoned with cumin and red pepper flakes
>roasted red and yellow peppers with red onion seasoned with salt and pepper
>poblano chili stuffed with jalapeno gouda and cumin gouda cheese

Southwestern Succotash - Hominy, black beans, diced butternut squash, diced green chiles and a splash of salsa verde simmered together with a healthy dusting of cumin and chili powder.
Torte de Calabacita - diced butternut squash, kernal corn, black beans and good Mexican melting cheese cooked between two burrito sized tortillas. Or you could do them quesadilla style in folded tortillas.
Cooked white or brown rice mixed with dons of finely chopped cilantro, parsley, and dill. Sometimes I add chopped tomatoes to the top.
or try Martha Stewart's avocado with vinaigrette. .I forgot exactly what she calls it, but the recipe is basically half an avocado per person with the indentation of the avocado filled with Classic Vinaigrette.
