Martha vs Meli

ok, so yesterday i was looking for a new tilapia recipe and i came across Martha Stewart's Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia with Salsa

it is pictured above. instead of spicy black beans i made an original recipe called Canned Salad. i know, not a very sexy name, but fitting. it can also be called a salsa, but since there are no chips in the house, it's a salad. ;)

Canned Salad
Seves ALOT
Prep Time 5 min

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can summer sweet corn (any canned corn will do), drained
1 can diced tomatoes with onion and garlic, just pour out the top of the liquid
1 can of green chiles
1/2 packet of Italian dressing seasoning
red wine vinegar to taste

ok, so open all the cans, dump into a bowl and add seasoning and vinegar, adjust to your liking. cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, but the longer it sits the better. *UPDATE: this salsa or salad or whatev tasted terrible the next day, so this recipe needs some serious tweaking on the seasoning part.*

so, here's my attempt:

the tilapia didn't make it from the pan to the
plate as gracefully as i would have liked, but my beans look so much better then her's. :P and i know my hubby would have gone to mcdonald's after dinner if i only served him fish and my salad, so i also heated up some really yummy rice. actually yum-o (ok, i gagged a little), that recipe is to follow soon. ;)

so, the fish alone was bland-o-rama, but paired with my salad, it was really good. :)

i'm going to call it a draw in our first head to head match. i LOVE being both the contestant AND the judge! ;)
