Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

Something’s Fishy at our House – Fish with Tomato Jam

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on March 10, 2009 ][ In Fish ]

Fishing with my father and the fish fries that followed are among my favorite memories. I can only hope that you have experienced a really good downhome fish fry sometime in your life too.
But fried fish is not healthy, messy and alot of trouble. Save it for a special occasion. Still fish remains one of my favorite things to cook and we eat it at least once a week. Fish is one of the quickest and healthiest options for dinner. I will frequently share my fish recipes including a new one I tried on my family this past weekend. It was a hit. Look around for your own recipes and try different kinds of fish.

Fish with Tomato Jam

4 catfish or tilapia fillets
1 tsp chili powder
Sprinkle fish with chili powder, salt to taste and set aside.
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 lemon
1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg and cumin
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
Wash the lemon and slice very thin. Combine lemon, tomatoes, spices and sugars in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 10 to 15 minutes, until the tomatoes have cooked down to a mush. Stir and chop up the tomatoes a bit. Keep warm.
Melt 2 TBsp of butter or put 2 TBsp. of olive oil in a large skillet. Cook fish in skillet over medium high heat about 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily, turning once. Remove lemon slices and serve jam over fish and add a green vegetable or salad.

Tilapia is a very mild fish my family really likes but use catfish to support our local farmers. So cast your line and reel in a good dinner!
