This Tilapia Steak with Red Wine Sauce Recipe is inherited from my mother. It’s fun, easy-to-make and of course, delicious.
My sisters observed that I am not that lucky in terms of friendship. Some of the people I treasure, who I don’t have blood relationships with, duped me for one reason: MONEY!
And it saddens me not because money is hard to find but because I trusted them and they broke it. Now, to be honest, I already have trust issues.
It’s hard to find people who won’t look at you that way, especially when your parents trained you to be industrious and practical. That’s why I keep these people the way I keep my jewelry.
Note: I’m not closing my doors to my friends who broke my trust because of money. I’m just getting wiser now.
Anyway, so much for the drama and let’s concentrate on another dish that I inherited from my mother. It’s the Tilapia Steak with Red Wine Sauce.
