    Someone suggested crab legs, and with the crab legs on sale, I was
    happy to oblige. I also picked up a few tilapia fillets just in case

    unexpected guest.)

    I fired up the grill, and coated on of the tilapia fillets with
    blackening spice. I left the other plain. I grilled the tilapia, the

    extra tomatoes and heavy on the lemon juice and mint.

    Served the crab legs with melted butter (not clarified, but it was
    served in a teacup, and was easy enought to pour clarified off the

    about 5-7 minutes (many potatoes, not just one) gives very good results
    and speeds the process considerably. Works with both regular and
