This recipe is an awesome alternative to a red barbeque sauce for chicken. It was a neighborhood favorite during summer when I was growing up. Submitted in memory of Ruth Karahan who originally had the recipe and passed away in 2004.
Tilapia fillets are rolled in coconut-flavored bread crumbs with a special spice mix, then pan fried and served with mango-pineapple salsa for a Caribbean-inspired dinner. Most any mild, firm fish will work, and it's great made with scallops, too.
Spicy seasoned sausage mixed with cream cheese and wrapped in crescent rolls. For a different variation, add thin slices of pepperoni on the bottom of crescent roll before the sausage mixture and shred cheddar on top of sausage; roll pastry over.
