I don't like fish much, but I love this baked tilapia recipe! I think the sauce can be used with other fish/seafood.

These are fast and tasty. If desired, top with a bit of marinara, mustard, etc. This makes 4 small patties, so I usually double the recipe for my family.

Balsamic Grilled Chicken Breast
Very Good 4.7/5

The marinade in this recipe can be easily altered to suit your taste. Try adding a clove or two of minced garlic and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary to finish. It pairs nicely with roasted potatoes, a green side salad and fresh fruit.

A tasty meal, quick to prepare, that looks colourful and is low calorie. It can be eaten hot or cold.
Its really good served with a sauce (I use Avocado Sauce, but a cream and wine, or tomato sauce would be as good - depending on your preference.
