I finished work today across the street from Total Wines @ Park Rd. in Charlotte. They had just started the wine tasting for friday night. The 1st one I tried was the 2003 Pierre Sparr PG. 12.5 abv and 12.99. A very good wine I thought, and one that my wife would like. She did say she had bought some Tilapia for supper tonight.

Crisp citris flavors and maby a little peach. Although some of the other SW drinkers could describe it better than I can.

Matched very good with the pan fried Tilapia.
Milk with one egg to dip the fish in. Then a mixture of flour salt and pepper (I also like to chop up one clove of garlic and mix in with the flour). And fry in peanut oil 3 min. each side. Then pour out the excess oil, and deglase with the juice of one lemon, add 4 tbl sp butter and fresh parsley. Pour the mixture over the fried Tilapia. Delish!

BTW, I believe that this is my first Pinot Gris. And the bottle is empty and mother and I have about 1/4 of a glass left.

Nice stuff that P Gris and the tilapia sounds nice too.

I have good memories associated with eating tilapia. I first had it at a favorite restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA with a group of colleagues from a conference. Next time I had it was at the prenuptial dinner for my nephew and his bride in Alexandria, VA.

We have made good use of Tilapia here in Az. Our water source from the Colo River comes to us in a long canal. Weeds were a problem. Introducing Tilapia farms in the canals has cleaned up the canals and frunishes us with loads of tasty mild white fishies. WW
