The other day I took the only food left in my fridge – a few pieces of chicken.

I had no idea what to do with it. So I sent an email to a friend who likes to cook.

“Have you any suggestions on what to do with chicken cutlets? Hmmm … I’m cooking for myself and my mother.”

Mmmm, Mmmm, good!Good to eat and easy to prepare! The tilapia fish was light and fluffy, and the citrus bagna caôda added a special explosive taste to the fi










In the previous post where I used the recipe for tilapia

(fish with tomato sauce / Peixe com Mollo de Tomate), asked if

we could find tilapia in Italy. According to Helen of Beyond

Salmon, the answer is “no.” However, there are many other

substitutes, such as:

Catfish Cod Hake Haddock Pollock Red Snapper Bass Sea Bream
(Orata Italian) Mediterranean Bass (Branzino Italian)

Helen said that you can use almost any white fish or cream,
which is delicate or slightly firm as a substitute for tilapia.
Thanks for the advice, Helen!Peace

Ed Note: Gia has informed me in the comments section,
although not very popular,
tilapia is available in Turin.

Editor's Note: February 1, 2011 - It looks like I lost half of the message,
including the recipe. I am replacing the recipe that Giada De Laurentiis is the Food Network.

I felt like having some fried chicken (pollo frito), something I haven’t had in a long time.Giada De Laurentiis on the Food Network channel has a nice recipe, which I tried for the second time.

The first time I prepared this recipe, I didn’t fry the chicken in the oil long enough. The outside was golden brown but the inside was still raw. I tried to ignore that fact and act as if everything was fine. My sister brought me back to reality very fast! She refused to eat the chicken. I was highly annoyed. She could have eaten it, after all the work I went through slaving over a hot stove with a pot of hot oil! Just joking. I don’t blame her.
