I get bored, so being a food blogger is perfect for me. Something new everyday. I don't do: Monday - meatless, Tuesday - spaghetti, type of menus well. I like different EVERY day. Once in a great while I will repeat a recipe, but very rarely. I know that is odd, but that is just the way I work. haha
So last night I made this new dish. I'll be honest, this was NOT my best dish. Oh, don't get me wrong, it wasn't "bad" but it wasn't fabulous and I like fabulous anything less and I feel I failed. I most likely will do this one again and change it up but for now, I wanted to share my dish with you.
It was easy, it was tasty but weird. Have you ever ate something and thought , "wow, this is weird" but could not stop eating it? That was last night. My husband kept saying "okay this is weird, not bad, but weird" and kept right on eating it.
Being as we have an empty nest, I have the freedom to do weird dishes, my boys would not have ever touched this. They love shrimp and crabs but not fish (when they were growing up) and 2 of the 3 have always been a very picky eaters. My husband however will eat dirt, so I can try anything and not worry about it going to waste.
6 Tilapia fillets
6 slices of bacon (cooked)
6 dill pickle spears
First fry your bacon and set it aside. Next take your fillet, spread grainy mustard on, place a slice of bacon and pickle, now roll it up and secure with a tooth pick. Sprinkle the roll with smoked paprika, fresh cracked pepper and a dash of sea salt. Continue until you have all six 6 complete. Now place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Serve with a nice roll, salad and side dish.
