Seafood With Citrus [Split from General Topics]

I'll look my orange and grapefruit ones up. May be tomorrow, so check back and I will post. My scallope one I love. It is a simple dish wish scallions, fresh fruit and juice and a little garlic, very clean with seared scallops. The shrimp in ginger, fruit juice and then grilled with red peppers, green pepper and fresh fruit segments, and the tilapia, cod and flounder your choice has a thickened fruit sauce over jasmine rice with grilled fruit and a sweet soy sauce. Another toasted with pecans, stir fried fruit and a light cilantro cream sauce.

I'll post them by tomorrow am.

  1. Oooh, just bought tilapia to make tomorrow night. And DH adores jasmine rice. Look forward to tomorrow's recipe! Only have a George Foreman, but I bet it'll grill fruit. (Not that I've ever tried. We're not exactly a fruit--and-grill family, but there's always a first time, and we're having a b-tch! of a winter.)

      It would be fine, I try to find it tonight, it has brown sugar, some ginger the fruit and fish, It is pretty basic but really tasty. No sauce Although I like to add the grilled fruit to a small pan and add a little white wine and a little butter and it makes a good simple sauce, but you could easily do that or on a simple sautee pot or pan. I find and post. Good light and simple. A good side of roasted asparagus in the oven in foil poaches would be great, or same with green beans. I love it cuz no clean up.

      Dizzle olive oil, salt and pepper over either cut green beans or asparagus and put in a foil pouch. Put in the oven and cook 35 minutes on 425. Flip 1 or 2 times. Simple, easy great grilled vegetables. You can add a little butter after cooking if desired. Perfect.

      Let me find the tilapia for you!

        I like to drizzle the fish with olive oil then salt and pepper and then in a bowl mix a couple of teaspoons of brown sugar a pinch of cayenne and fresh parsley. Spread on both sides of the fillets.

        Now the fruit. I mix segments of the fruit grapefruit and oranges 1 whole fruit each, and also squeeze the juice from 1/2 grape fruit and 1 whole orange as well and then marinate in 1/2 cup white wine, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, ground pepper and 2 teaspoons honey.

        This can be done is just a skillet, not need a grill at all. Melt butter and a little olive oil and then saute then tilapia on medium high heat till brown on broth sides. Remove and cover. Don't over cook, add the fruit to lightly brown and then add the wine mixture from the fruit marinade to the pan to deglaze. Reduce for about 4-5 minutes. I like to add a tablespoons of butter and just a bit of cornstarch to lightly thicken. Garnish with fresh cilantro and diced scallions 2-3 and then pour over the tilapia and jasmine rice. It is a great citrus fish dish not too strong but tasty with the rice.
