Ma, what's for dinner? Well, let me tell you.. this KICK AS....err.....butt fish is what's for dinner. But seriously, have you visited Ma What's for Dinner? website? If not, go there....especially if you have children. Alex will give you all sorts of pointers on how to get your picky eaters to not only eat different foods, but to help you in the cooking process. I love her picky eater pointers... some of them even work with my picky eater :)
Alex claims she has an unhealthy addiction to sushi. I think I could safely say the same thing. Other than price, the biggest thing that keeps me from eating it more than I do is the fact that Chris does not like it. And, although, he always says we can go have sushi anytime, it's hard to take someone to a restaurant when you know they are not going to enjoy it. I'd rather just wait and go with my friends who enjoy it as much as I do. So, when I saw Alex's recipe for Salmon Dynomite, I thought.. YES! I can have the same flavors as one of my favorite sushi items and still please Chris with something he will enjoy just as much! Sometimes compromise is good :)
Adapted from Alex aka Ma, What's for Dinner?
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 Tablespoon mirin (Japanese rice wine)
1 Tablespoon Sriracha
4 tilapia fillets
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Rinse the tilapia and pat dry; place in prepared pan.
In a small bowl mix together the mayo, sesame oil, mirin, and Sriracha until smooth. Spread half of the mixture evenly over each fillet. Place baking dish in oven and cook for 6 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully spread remaining mixture over each fillet. Returned to oven and continue to bake another 7 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Enjoy!
