creamy grilled tilapia recipe

Grilled was the only way to go with the letter G, and since today is day 7, that means we have been doing this for one week now.

Tomorrow should be fairly quiet around here, since we don’t post on Sundays (except last Sunday – the first day) but for today it’s Grilled food, and I chose a Creamy Grilled Tilapia with Parmesan.

What’s your favorite way to eat fish?
