Mama’s in the kitchen cooking (white fish with mayonnaise glaze)

This is another recipe I picked up from the Everyday Food magazine about 6 years ago. At first I was hesitant to try because let’s face it, mayonnaise glaze doesn’t sound all that appetizing but trust me it tastes amazing! I have cooked this dish a number of times for friends and family and they all rave about it. And of course the ingredients are simple and can be found at any supermarket.

Ingredients
White fish (I usually make it with Tilapia or Swai fish)
Mayo
Lemon juice (fresh or from the bottle)
Your favorite seasonings (old bay, salt, mrs. dash and garlic)
Shredded Cheese (optional)

3) Season fish to your liking

4) Place 2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise in a mixing bowl
5) Add lemon juice: if using fresh lemons it will probably take the juice of 2 lemons or a little less than 1/4 of a cup of the lemon juice
6) Mix mayo and lemon juice until the texture is whipped but a thinner consistency than mayo (if too thick add a splash more lemon juice)
7) Season the mayo/lemon juice combo with your favorite seasonings

8) Once mayo glaze is mixed well what I like to do is put a dollop on each piece of fish to ensure that’s it’s even distributed

9) With the back of a spoon spread the glaze to fully cover each piece of fish

10) Place in the oven for 35 minutes or until the glaze is golden

11) Sometimes when I’m in the mood for cheese I turn the oven off, add some shredded cheese and let sit in the oven until it’s melted. But with or without the cheese it’s equally as yummy!

Bon Apetit!

Jam of the week (Forbidden Fruit)

This song is smooth just like I like my music, with Kendrick Lamar on the hook and a Tribe Called Quest “Electric Relaxation” sample you can’t really go wrong! Love this song!

Jam of the Week (Without Me)

I finally had the chance to listen to Fantasia’s new album over the weekend and I must say it’s not bad at all. Clearly, she’s going through or getting over some thangs but who of us isn’t. I found myself repeating this song over and over again and then the chop and screw sealed the deal for me (I mentioned before that I’m a sucker for some chopping and screwing). So here is Fantasia with a little help from Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliott. What do you think?
