I’ve always been fond of Tilapia. It’s not exactly the poor man’s fish but it is a versatile fish for dishes.
You can fry it crisp, grill it, cook it in coconut milk, and in this case, steam it.
Steaming tilapia was something we do in case we get tired of eating our fish fried. It is a healthier alternative and the flavor of the fish is heightened by the ingredients in it. I for one love cooking it like this because it’s nice to suck the juices out of the tilapia head. And the beans add a bit of biting saltiness that matches quite well with the rice. More to that, prep time and cooking time takes less than 20 minutes. Beat that Rachel Ray! >w<)v
Anyway, on to the recipe!
