Tilapia or Cod Non-Fish Style

Fish is not something I eat unless I have to. I tried everything not to eat it until finally my diet coach, Tad Inoue, said, “Man up and eat the Cod!”

So how do you eat fish when you can’t stand the flavor? Balsamic Vinegar to the rescue!

For some reason, when you put balsamic vinegar on fish, it hides the fish flavor. Here is my recipe for having to eat fish when you don’t want to.

1. Heat a skillet with spray olive oil and saute green onion, salt, pepper and garlic.
2. Turn heat to medium and lay in your fish.
3. Spray the fish with a little more spray olive oil and squeeze on lemon, season with pepper, salt and garlic.
4. Cover to cook for about 5 minutes.
5. Flip fish to cook other side and spray with Balsamic Vinegar.
6. Add veggies around fish and spray with more Balsamic Vinegar.
7. Cover to cook a few more minutes.

I like my fish slightly burned but soft in the middle. The burnt parts are very tasty with a dark flavor from the garlic and vinegar.


When you eat fish with rice, making sure to get a bite of fish and rice together will mask the fish flavor as well.
