A generous local friend made some food for us, which is awesomely awesome, and I have a question about one of the dishes in terms of reheating.
It's tilapia, sliced lemons, and celery in a lemony sauce. There's a bit of something else green I can't identify; possibly green onions?
Anyway, it arrived last night just-cooked and was quite yummy. Tonight I reheated just the fish and celery and sauce in the microwave, having discarded the lemon slices that were on those pieces of fish. It was still yummy, but something in it had taken on a bitter taste.
Is it the lemons, and should I remove them immediately? Is it because the original dish is in a metal pan and that's reacting to the lemons?
Is it the celery?
Is it because I reheated the fish in the microwave?
Or is it something else I'm not thinking of?
We have two more helpings of this and if I can minimize the bitter taste for Wednesday night's supper, that would be groovy.
