It's seafood time in Ruskin for the Ruskin Seafood Festival!

Yes, that's right. I can't wait for this weekend, when the 23rd annual Ruskin Seafood Festival comes to South Shore. The annual fish fest rolls into E. G. Simmons Park with boatloads of delectable seafood, and much more! Read all about the festivities in this weeks Table Scraps column.

I'm always looking for different ways to cook fish. Reach for the sour cream and garlic when baking this easy recipe for tilapia. These two basic ingredients provide a subtle flavor boost, while protecting the delicate fish from toughening or drying out.

You'll want to keep this one in your recipe log.


2 tilapia fillets
4 garlic cloves
2 tomatoes
5 tablespoons of sour cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place the tilapia fillets in a baking dish. Bake for approx. 10 minutes. While the fish is baking, crush, mince or press the garlic and dice the tomatoes. Stir together garlic and diced tomatoes in a bowl. Stir in the sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. When the tilapia is halfway done, remove the dish from the oven and pour the sour cream mixture over the fish. Place the dish in the oven again and cook until the fish fillets can be easily flaked with a fork (approx. 10 minutes).
