GIVE A MAN 8 JAPANESE TURNIPS, 2 FAT ORGANIC TOMATOES, 5 LUSCIOUS CLOVES OF AJO ROJO AND 2 FILLETS OF TILAPIA AND THEY’LL DIE TO INVITE GUESTS OVER AND WRITE A COOK BOOK!

as some of you may recall, my friends gave me a bag of organic veggies from their farm when they found out i was spending turkey day alone. i was intimidated by the japanese turnips at first….but,….well….tonight i’m in love with those folks AND their crazy vegetable!

the following recipe is DELICIOUS and EASY as can possibly be. the hardest part will be finding the delicious veggies (particularly the turnips) for the dish.

Ingredients (for 2 people)

2 FRESH fillets of tilapia

8 sm. japanese (white egg) turnips (quartered)

5 cloves organic garlic (chopped BIG chunks)

1 FAT organic tomato (chopped in big chunks)

4 tbs olive oil, butter OR margarine (depending on your cholesterol level)

SO EASY! HERE GOES:

heat skillet

add butter or oil

add fish fillets and

add chunks of garlic

cook 4 minutes

add tomato chunks

after one more minute…flip

cook 1 more minute

add turnips

1 to 2 minutes then serve hot

IMPORTANT: you are only WARMING turnips, not cooking them. warm and crunchy turnips with the tangy tomatoes and chewy tilapia is what makes it so yummy!

“what did you drink?” you ask. i knowww your suppoooosed to drink white wine, but here’s the deal:

this dish is super garlic-y. and what goes great with garlic? RED WINE! one bite of garlic helps you identify the spices, fruits and woody flavors in any red wine, and in turn, the wine mellows the garlic in the dish.

have at it people!
