I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Fish Tacos w/ Cilantro & Grilled Tilapia

Whipped these up today. Give them a try.

  • Fresh Tilapia I get mine from Costco
  • Small flour tortillas
  • Green peppers
  • Vidalia onion
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Cholula hot sauce
  • Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Sea salt
  • Finely ground black pepper
  • 1 fresh Lemon
  • 1 fresh lime
  • Olive oil
  • Ice cubes

Lay the Tilapia filets out on plastic wrap. Half the lemon and squeeze over the Tilapia. Half the lime and sueeze over the Tilapia. Gather a pinch of Sea Salt (about 1/2 teaspoon) and sprinkle over the Tilapia. Sprinkle the pepper on the Tilapia, about 1 teaspoon. Seperate the cilantro leaves from the stems. Chop the Cilantro somewhat and spread over the Tilapia. Seal the Tialpia in the plastic wrap and let sit for a few minutes while you prepare the grill

I use a gas grill. Start the grill, you are shooting for about 400 degrees.

While the grill is heating up, place a lage piece of heavy duty aluminum foil down. Take the Tilapia and spread out in the middle of the foil. Take a few ice cubes and throw in with the Tilapia. Fold the end and edges of the foil up tightly making a foil tent with the fish inside. Make sure it is a sealed pouch.

Put the foil pouch on the grill for about 15 - 20 minutes. Be very careful opening the foil pouch, it will have hot steam. The fish should be flaky and moist from the steaming.

Suate the green peppers, and vidalia onion in 1 Tbsp Olive oil while the fish is cooking. Season to taste lightly.

Once the fish and veggies are prepared:

Heat the flour tortilla's in a fry pan.

Place some fish, sauted veggies, and shredded lettuce in the tortilla shell. Add a small amount of Cholula hot sauce, a few drops of Lite Ranch dressing, wrap and enjoy.
