Color, Click, Capture Photography Challenge: Green Cilantro-Lime Tilapia Recipe

Welcome to Week 4 of the Color, Click, Capture photography challenge hosted by East9thStreetA Helicopter MomNap Time Is My Time and Sunshine and Sippy Cups.  This week the color is green. While I think my favorite color is red it is hard to deny how captivating green is among nature, the kitchen, and beyond!

This week’s photography tips comes from Emily Anderson of Emily Anderson Photography.  Emily has been photographing children and families in the Northeast Arkansas area for several years.

Don’t forget the details. Include more than just one image of the overall view. A wide shot of the entire object or scene may be necessary, but you can make it more interesting by including detail shots too. Take a close up of an interesting button on a sewing project or one corner of the cake you baked, showing the texture of the icing. It can be very tempting to snap one or two images when you are in a hurry to get them uploaded to the computer for a blog or Facebook post, but challenge yourself to take several different images. This also applies to photographing people. Think about what details tell the story – wrinkled hands, grass-stained jeans, flip-flop tan lines, etc. You may find that you can take several different images in a row before you run out of ideas. Don’t give up then. Keep shooting. That’s when you turn on your creativity.

With Lent around the corner, I am working on my fish recipes to prepare for fridays.  It seemed obvious that this recipe screamed GREEN :)

Cilantro-Lime Tilapia serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 (4 oz.)  tilapia fillets (or other white fish)
  • 2 cups cilantro, packed
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced
  • Poultry seasoning (or favorite seasoning for veggies)

Directions

  • Combine cilantro, lime juice, 1 TBSP olive oil, honey, and garlic (opt) in food processor until smooth. Add a little water if needed.
  • Spread cilantro-lime mixture on both sides of tilapia. Then, place on baking pan.
  • Broil tilapia until it flakes about 10 minutes.
  • While fish broiling, saute zucchini. Heat remaining oil to medium heat, place zucchini slices in single layer. Sprinkle with seasoning of choice. Lightly brown both sides about 5-7 minutes total. Remove from heat.

  5. I’ve always want a palm but for some reason I ALWAYS kills them! Their chance of living is much greater if they are far, far away from me.

  6. Yum! I bet the Cilantro, Lime and Honey would be awesome on Salmon too. Thanks for the idea!
