MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2012

"LOVED the tilapia cooked in butter. It imparted a good colour and flavour to the fish. The grapefruit and black bean combo was excellent. I didn't use enough jalapeno so I will add more next time and I added a touch more red onion than the recipe called for...it was too strong! I'll stick with the recipe next time. Recipe takes a little preparation but is easy to make and has a very unique flavour!"
