Burgers with Lime Mayonnaise

Gabby / August 26th, 2012

The intent was to successfully finish our epic fish marathon.  Our game plan was extensive and detailed: the tilapia would be blackened to hide the fact that we were still eating fish and as a further precaution, the tilapia would then be served with lime mayonnaise and as a sandwich to mask the texture and taste of tilapia.  And in celebration we invited Joe to aid in the disappearance of the tilapia.

At least… that was the plan.
If I had a nickel for every plan gone awry, I’d be a very, very rich person.

Alas it was not meant to be.  (Not that Jen or I complained).  By the time we had finally organized ourselves and found the motivation to finish the tilapia it was three days after the tilapia had expired and the fish was looking fairly suspicious.  But for some odd reason, Joe wasn’t too thrilled in aiding our culinary efforts as test subject 1827.

It seemed prudent at this point to adapt our plans.  Since we’d already prepared the seasoning mix, we used that to prepare sausage patties instead.

The rest of the afternoon passed in relative normality. Joe pretended to study, but really played with Google Goggles.  Jen pretended to study as well, but really watched KPop music videos.  And I pretended to watch KPop videos, but really browsed food porn.  And meanwhile we watched Call Me Maybe parodies like this one and this one, and immortalized our cooking habits to that tune.

The song goes something like this:

It’s hard to look right,
At tilapia.
But try it blackened,
Or as a sandwich.

It’s hard to tell I,
Think it’s smelly.
So here’s tilapia,
Just eat maybe?

I’d like to check it,
I need test subjects.
How ’bout tilapia?
It’s green and slimy.

Something weird was growing,
Slight green fuzz was showing,
Feed it to you without knowing,
Where you think you’re going crazy?

The fish was staring.
Thin, pale skin was showing.
I feared for our lives now,
What are these regrets I’m feeling?!?!

I took my time with the fish,
I though about the black tint,
I thought you just might be cool,
So now you’re in the clear.

You took your time with the fish,
I took no time with the sauce,
You gave me back a clean dish,
And now you’re in my way.

Hey, I just fed you.
And this is crazy.
But here’s bread pudding,
So try it maybe?

Okay, so our song won’t ever be #1 in the Billboards, but it’s not that terrible.  All right, fine, so maybe it is.  If our musical talent’s not to your liking
Then maybe you’ll,
Like the sandwich?
