Raspberry Tilapia

I love seafood! I think that seafood is truly one of my favorite foods. If you are not a fish or seafood fan don't let this recipe scare you away. This recipe is sure to please even those non-seafood lovers. Tilapia is a farm raised fish, it is very mild and doesn't have the fishy taste that is usually the culprit for turning most people away from eating fish. I like to buy my Tilapia at Walmart. I buy it in a 4 lb bag with pre-shrink wrapped fillet portions. Tilapia is white in color and has a little pink to it. I like that the fish is pre-wrapped into individual portions so I can take out how many fillets I want to make, which makes this dish an even more convenient dish to make for my family. It takes about 25 minutes to put this dish together and bake. You won't be disapointed in the flavor department. The raspberry Vinegar, honey and dill weed compliment this fish very well. I personally think that the fish is better the day after. When serving for dinner I love to serve this fish over a good helping of wild rice along with steamed asparagus. The flavors compliment each other very well. For a lunch option, you could serve the day old fish over a salad with some raspberry vinaigrette. This is one tasty entree, and even my two kids love this and ask for more. Give this recipe a try tonight!
