Documenting Dinner – Poached Tilapia with a Sh*tload of Onions

with one comment

I was cooking dinner Friday night and it just looked so damn good that I felt like taking pictures of it.

The sh*tload of onions referenced in the title along with dried chilis and a spice blend called panch phoron.

Five minutes later – still a sh*tload but a smaller one.

Freshly ground coriander, cumin, cayenne, and salt added into the mix.

The end result! Served over basmati rice with a Copperhead Pale Ale from Free State Beer in Lawrence, KS.

The recipe is “Poached Carp with Chiles and Onions” from 660 Curries by Raghavan Iyer. I very much recommend picking up a copy at your local library, discovering that you love it, and then buying it for yourself.
