I like to eat healthy but must admit that fish somehow never makes the top of the list when I'm planning meals. I'm trying to change and really have to make a conscious effort to include it in my diet.
While in the grocery store I noticed some really fresh tilapia and remembered seeing a recipe on Pinterest that looked pretty unintimidating. Although the recipe was more involved, I adapted to my own taste and was hugely surprised at how simple, delicious and satisfying this meal was. So for all of you who are iffy about fish or concerned about not knowing how to cook it, fear no more - so so simple.
2 pieces of tilapia
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp butter, margarine or oil
2 Tbsp of water
Heat 1 Tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Saute the mushrooms and the water. Cook until the water has evaporated and the mushrooms are mostly cooked (about 5-8 mins). While the mushrooms are cooking, spice the tilapia on both sides. I used Trader Joe's 21 Salute (my very favourite spice mix).
Add tilapia to the skillet and sear until cooked (about 3 minutes per side)
Place the tilapia on the serving dish and spoon the mushrooma over the top. I added some sweet potato fries.
