Brussels Sprouts Crusted Tilapia

January 8, 2015

Author Notes: Tilapia, to me, is a blank canvas that can take a lot of color (flavor) so I wanted something different. The safety net of leftovers in the fridge gave me confidence to experiment. Try it, let me know if you like it, adjusted it or think I need to be sent back to the scullery.Fat Tony
