Healthy meals don’t have to take a long time. I often buy frozen fish filets. When they are only 4oz per piece, they thaw quickly and cook even faster. Let’s gather what we’re going to need for the tilapia and start cooking!
These filets can be served as is for those who are counting calories, but they can also be broken up and served in flour tortillas as tacos with a dollop of sour cream and a bit of cheese. Also makes a tasty fish quesadilla. This would be divine served over Spanish rice. Try breading and frying the tilapia for picky eaters and serve the salsa on the side. Get creative!
- 2 4oz frozen tilapia filets, thawed
- 1/2 cup peach and mango salsa (or any salsa you prefer)
- Creole seasoning
- 1 zucchini, sliced thin
- 1 summer squash, sliced thin
- 1 carrot, sliced thin
- 1/4 red onion, large chop
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil
- Pam or other spray
Preheat oven to
In a small oven proof bowl or dish, spray or brush the bottom with oil. Sprinkle both sides of the tilapia filets with the creole seasoning. Place a spoonful of salsa into the dish and place the filets on top. Top with the remaining salsa.
In a medium bowl, toss all vegetables, 2 tablespoons olive oil and a teaspoon of the creole seasoning. Place the vegetables in the oven for ten minutes.
After ten minutes, add the filets in the oven and cook everything for another 15 minutes. The tilapia will be flaky and break apart easily when it is cooked. There will be no transparent areas. Serve and eat while hot!
