Happy Father's Day! This week #SundaySupper is celebrating our dads. I am lucky enough that while you are reading this I am on my way home to Pittsburgh to see my dad for Father's Day. Not only that but my brother and I are running in Pittsburgh's version of The Amazing Race so it should be an action packed day.
I’m always on the lookout for new fish recipes. I’ve only been eating fish for a handful of years now and I’m not very good at cooking it. Whenever I eat fish I think of my dad. When we were little he used to take my brother and I fishing every summer. I was not your typical girly girl and I loved putting the worm on my hook and pulling the fish out of the water. I stopped fishing when I hit 16 but my brother and my dad still go together to this day.

Another reason fish make me think of my dad because growing up I flat out refused to eat them so we never had fish at home. Mom never cooked fish unless it was something we brought home whenever we went fishing. So many times when we go out to eat my father would order fish and chips or a fish sandwich since he never got to eat fish at home. Now that I do eat a limited number of fish I'm hoping to cook it for him someday day.
I wanted to make a fish dish for Father's Day to show my dad I'm thinking about him. He is such a patient and kind man and he's the best listener there is. So I set off searching for the perfect fish recipe. I’ve seen recipes for fish with black bean sauce before but I’ve never wanted to try them because they looked too complicated. When I came across this recipe it looked easy enough so I gave it a try.

The fish was cooked almost perfectly in the oven with the peppers. I love that you put the fish in the parchment paper to cook because it seals in the juices and flavors. The black bean sauce was thick and a little salty. It made the perfect pairing for the light flavor of the tilapia. The vegetables added color and flavor to this dish as well. I hope I get to make this for my dad soon!
