Many of you would know by now that I am a foodie and a photographer by hobby. I frequently love to feature photos of food prepared by myself.  I consider this hobby as a learning curve. I am no way a professional photographer. Neither am I a great cook. Two months ago I featured a photo of my recipe titled “stir-fry tilapia with asparagus” on my photo-blog. A commenter by the name of Sadaf requested for the recipe and I thought to share it here with him and every one else. So here it goes!

Stir-fry Tilapia with Asparagus

Stir-fry Tilapia with Asparagus


  • 1/2 lbs fillet of tilapia or any firm fish
  • 1/2 lbs asparagus
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Salt & pepper fish slices to taste.
  2. Heat skillet to medium-high, add 3 tbsp olive oil.
  3. Fry fish till golden brown and remove from heat.
  4. In the same oil, add shallots and fry till tender.
  5. Add crushed red pepper.
  6. Add chopped garlic and fry till fragrant.
  7. Throw in the asparagus, salt and pepper to taste.
  8. After 1 minute, add the fish and serve immediately with rice. Awesomeness!

After adding asparagus, do not overcook it. A little al dente, retains the color and taste. Bon appetite!

Photography is about capturing moments – I say. And the more I click The more I learn. Field training is The best but yes, educational helps a little. I wish best-wishes for your skills.

Thanks for the best wishes Hobo! I can courier, but I can’t promise the quality upon receipt 😀 Appreciate the taste guarantee 😉

Nice recipe. Too bad we didn’t get to taste it though. ^^ Perhaps we should try to make one, I doubt mine would be as delicious-looking as yours.

It’s an easy-peasy recipe. Do give it a try and let me know how it taste. I am not so much bothered about the look, but my Nikon D60 requires attention all the time 😀 Best of luck!

Yum! Not a fan of Asparagus but I can always try it with Beans. Can’t I?

Yes, you can substitute asparagus with beans. It would still be as tasteful. Enjoy!
