Gone Fishin: Chimichurri Tilapia and Asparagus


What to do with a surplus of cilantro? Chimuchurri, of course! This sauce is awesome for adding flavor to anything from seafood to chicken to steak… My personal favorite is skirt steak with chimichurri.

Ingredients for the sauce:

Cilantro (like 2 handfuls of it… this is the base of the SAWCE)

Garlic (a large clove or so)

Onion (half a small yellow one)

Olive oil (about a third to a half cup)

Vinegar (or Lime… I use lime when I’m making this for seafood and apple cider vinegar for steak or chicken)

Salt (about a half teaspoon, but add to taste)

Jalapeño (optional- I throw in like a quarter jalap for a little kick)



… just throw everything in the food processor and press the ON button. done. super easy and awesome.


The fish pictured is tilapia that I seasoned with garlic-salt and pepper, dusted in flour, and pan-fried in a bit of olive oil.

The asparagus is oven-roasted… I tossed it around in a bit of olive oil, some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Once coated, I laid it out on a baking sheet, sprinkled it with parmesan, and put it in a 400 deg oven for about 20 minutes.
