About

I love to eat fish as well as to cook it. I must admit though I prefer to cook a whole fish - that means with its head- than fish fillets. I was feel a little overwhelmed with them. After much reading recipes from halfhourmeals.com, two of them caught my attention and I decided to blend them together in my own way. My inspirations were Fried Fish with Coriander/Cilantro Sauce and Herb and Lemon Butter Tilapia.
