Delicious Past…

Costa Rican Fish & Chips


Sitting on the beach, relaxing to the sound of the waves crashing on shore, and eating, eating very well. That was our delightful experience in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We ate at a beach front restaurant called Lola’s. It offers fresh seafood and simple dishes full of flavor. Fresh fish on the beach is always a great experience and this was no exception. The fish is Tilapia and was moist and flavorful with a delicious crispy batter that it was fried in. It came with a side of coleslaw and fries or ‘chips’. The fish is definitely the star of the show. Full of Costa Rican flavors, the batter stays crispy not getting soggy at all. Check out the easy recipe for this Costa Rican fish after the jump!
