Tilapia Dynomite

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 :)

Yesterday, I went for all-you-can-eat sushi with my coworkers. We were wondering what was dynomite sauce in the menu.

The sauce sounds very tasty and mouthwatering. I bookmark the recipe.

I think I'd like the salmon a little more, but I'd definitely chomp the tilapia right up too.

Mmmmmm. Is this like the 'spread' that's usually in a Crab Dynamite roll? Love, love, love that stuff! I bet this would be good on an old shoe! Thanks for sharing another winner and for introducing us to Ma, wfd?
