Cajun Tilapia with Cilantro Lime Rice and Veggies

I really like the cajun blend, but so far had only tried it on chicken.  Not shocking--it was great on tilapia too!  I followed the directions on the jar, adding some grapeseed oil and some of the blend to the tilapia and let it sit for 20 minutes or so in a ziploc bag.


I put it on my indoor grill, because I find it difficult to grill fish on the outdoor grill.  That's probably more due to the fact that the guy who runs the grill wasn't home!  Therefore, it's difficult to grill outside since I don't do it (after that hamburger on fire a couple years ago, my eyebrows just refuse).



On the side I made up a quick pot of cilantro lime rice and lemony garlic veggies.  The rice is just according to the jar, no changes.  The veggies were made by using half zesty lemon GSO and half roasted garlic GSO, heated in a non-stick pan.  Add whatever veggies are in your fridge--today I used broccoli, yellow bell peppers and mushrooms.  Stir fry until desired doneness.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  This is so yummy with almost any dinner!

This looks so delicious, and from all appearances, I would think you grilled it outdoors. YUMMY! The snow hike looked fun, too!

You wanted to know the patterns for the doll and dog in the pillow cases - The dog is from a Simplicity pattern 2945 and the doll is from a pattern I bought on YouCanMakeThis.com and it's the Mae doll. I hope that helps. Thanks for your kind comments. Traci
