Tilapia Fillet with Buckwheat and Yams

One interesting fact that most people are unaware is yams are often mistakenly called sweet potatoes, and vice versa, but they are two different vegetables. Sweet potatoes are delicious, but nothing compared to yams. Yams have more nutrient and less calories then any potatoes.  Just a little info before the journey begins.

To start things off, I like to introduce the Chefs special Yam recipe. To clairify, its not really special. The most easiest, and yummiest way to make yams is……

Slice the yams in block forms like above.

Season it with Cinnamon, salt, pepper and olive oil

Oven roast  the yams and you got it!

So golden and sweet, makes the taste bites go crazy.

Furthermore, we shall get right into the main dish, our Tilapia Fillet. To season this fish is extremely easy.

Seasoning of the Tilapia Fillet




and this time we used bread crumbs to give it the extra crunch.


Simply Amazing..


One must wonder what that grainy side dish must be…? The one and only Buckwheat… Yes its hard to find, (Usually only at Wholefoods) but it makes the meal more health considering you are eating fried fish.

Thank you all for checking out Colorfulfoods, now go and try it yourselves. Tell me how you can improve this meal ..

Swai fillet with oven roasted potatos

Sunday’s are a time for friends and family. What better way to spend time with each other, then enjoying a nice home cooked meal… preferably Fish. lets get this show on the road. I had one of the most interesting tasting fishes out there. Its not your typical Salmon or Maui fish. Today i had Swai Fillet. Im sure its not among the highest quality of fishes out there in our lovely seas and oceans, but preparing has a lot to do with the amazing taste. Our chef (Mom) told me she spent several hours seasoning the fish fillet with pepper, spices, mayo, and much more.. It was left for one day in this special sauce created by the chef and was ready for cooking today in the morning. One might ask how we cooked this interesting fish? Oven cooked the beast with seasoned potatos and it was beautiful. With the oven, the possibilities are endless. The food is cooked in a more healthy fashion and nothing is subtracted from the taste.
