Flickr photo by MVIStrawberries are in season, and I'm like a kid in a candy store.
I'm attempting to grow my own, but until they sprout, I get mine from the street vendor because they're cheaper, fresher, and local.
Plus, if I go at the end of the day, he gives me extra fruit for free: Street vendor guy is my new BFF.
I started thinking about how to incorporate strawberries into more savory, dinner-like dishes and tried grilled tilapia with strawberries, lemon, and basil chutney.
Yum-o! It's my new healthy go-to meal.
Try it yourself with my recipe ...
Grilled Tilapia With Strawberry Chutney
- 2 lemons, zested and juiced
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 filets tilapia
- 5 chopped strawberries
- 2 chopped basil leaves
1. In a bowl, combine juice and zest of 1 lemon with 1 teaspoon oil. Marinate fish in fridge 1 hour in lemon mix. Remove fish and add salt and pepper to taste. Place on hot grill and cook until tender.
2. In another bowl, add juice and zest of the other lemon with 1 teapsoon oil. Toss in strawberries and basil and mix.
3. Top tilapia with a spoonful of strawberry chutney and enjoy.
Tune in tomorrow to see what we do with leftover strawberries ...
