Tilapia Sweet & Sour

Tilapia's is one of our favourite fish at home. I love the freshness I get from it. It taste great when you baked,fried or steam.

This couple of weeks I've been cooking sweet&sour dish. Just got addicted to the flavors and little boy enjoys it very much.

I was informed by the doctor I've 3 weeks to go after this I will be off from blogging until further noticed.

This recipe is actually simple and delicious if you use all the correct ingredients.
