Delicious Tilapia or Shrimp Scampi

We picked our first garden fresh tomato today! It was beautiful. With great self-control and sacrifice I let my four-year-old have it. :) He loved it. The corn is "as high as an elephant's eye." Well maybe not quite, but it's taller than me! It will be ripe in a few days here I hope! We are looking forward to it with great anticipation. We planted our second crop of peas a few weeks ago and the plants are just starting to pop up. We are getting cucumbers, a few peppers, beans, a few summer squash, carrots and plenty of chard. Too much actually. We can't keep on top of it. I froze a bunch of it today just so it wouldn't get too big. I'll blend it up and put it in sauces or other dishes. Speaking of dishes, here's another wonderful summer dish for you. Fish is great for summer because it's light and tasty! Enjoy.

Baked Tilapia (or Shrimp) Scampi

*Serves 3-4

*One of our favorite ways to eat  veggies!

5 tilapia filets (or 1 lb. small cooked shrimp)

Place Tilapia and vegetables in 9x13 baking dish. Pour melted butter on top. Sprinkle with seasonings as desired. Bake 375 F for 30-45 mins or until fish and vegetables are tender. Serve over rice with a side of fruit salad. Mmm....delicious!
