What's cooking Wednesday

The theme for today's meal is yellow. It wasn't really planned that way, but clearly that's what happened. Tilapia, gold beets and sweet potato oven fries. Even the sauces are yellow.

The sauce on the fish is from this month's cookbook, Crazy Plates. They had it over baked sole, but I pan fried tilapia instead. And cooked it perfectly, I might add.

Heart and Sole

1/3 c lemon juice
1/4 c of chicken or veggie broth
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp each cornstarch and grated gingerroot
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1 clove garlic, minced

Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to boil and cook until thickened and bubbly. Serve over fish.

Verdict: It was good, lots of flavour, but was lacking. It's a low fat cookbook, and sometimes that doesn't work. I added a couple of tablespoons of butter and the sauce was much improved. It is potent, this is four servings. Use sparingly or it could overpower the fish.

All that yellow looks very pretty on the plate I must say. Great recipe.
