Tilapia with mustard sauce. 9/24/22

Baked tilapia with mustard sauce, new potatoes, and green beans

Growing up we never ate fish. Zero. Nada. My father was forced to eat fish as a child and he never got over the trauma. In fact even our cat was not allowed to eat canned cat food that had fish in it. My dad just could not tolerate even the smell. Needless to say I do not have an instinctual knowledge of cooking fish. I leave that up to John.

It certainly seems easy. He seasons up the fish and bakes it in a 400F oven for 15 minutes and, voila, the fish is cooked perfectly. In the meantime I get to steam the potatoes, sauté the green beans, and make a mustard sauce. Somehow that does not seem like an equal division of labor! But it works for us.

The mustard sauce is a tablespoon of whole grain mustard, a tablespoon of Dijon mustard, a squirt of yellow mustard, a teaspoon of mayonnaise, and a splash of water to thin it out. John loved it and put it on everything. It was definitely great on the fish and the potatoes.
