Braised tilapia is the shit.
  • Pan fry the fish until both sides are slightly brown.
  • Pour in 2 table spoons of soy sauce to the fish. Also add scallions, ginger slices, sugar, cooking wine, vinegar, tomato slices, and tofu. Then add a cup or two of water.
  • Simmer for 5-10 minutes.

A little complicated for this efficiency kitchen, so the only thing I really miss about that cafe job was that we had a chef designing the dishes and some excellent line cooks putting the plates together.

Pete, the head line cook would hold up a platter, with a big proud grin on his face, and say "Please, please put this in your mouth." And when he smiled you knew you were about to taste something you'd never had. Ahhh, Pete!! You were the best, man. I'll never forget that Tilapia.
