Ever since I can remember, fish have fascinated me. When I was little, I would go fishing with my mother and I even had my own fishing pole. Unfortunately, my sons aren’t so fond of fish, and my husband prefers shrimp and octopus. There is only one type of fish I can get them to eat: baked tilapia. They like it because its flavor is not as strong as other types of fish. And I love it because it’s so versatile! My kids’ favorite recipe is baked tilapia with a sauce made from ingredients that are always present in most kitchens: ketchup and mustard. The combination of these condiments gives a sweet ‘n’ sour taste to the dish that kids love. Try it and you’ll see! MORE + LESS -
