Ben and I eat a lot of fish when we cook at home. It’s easy to make and very versatile. We prefer mild white fish like tilapia, mahi mahi, grouper, etc. This particular recipe, I served with plain quinoa and roasted broccoli.
Tilapia- makes two servings
2 5-6oz tilapia filets
1/2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1tsp black pepper
Mix ingredients and pour into a plastic bag with the tilapia filets. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat, coat with cooking spray. When the pan is hot, add the fish. Don’t move the fish until the first side releases from the pan easily when you give the pan a gentle shake. Flip the filets and cook for 4-5 minutes longer. Don’t over cook your fish. Serve with Mango-Kiwi Salsa, quinoa, and a vegetable!
Mango Kiwi Salsa- makes enough for 2 fish filets with leftovers
1 mango, peeled and finely diced
1 kiwi, peeled and finely diced
1tbsp chopped cilantro
Juice of 1/2 orange
Mix all ingredients and let stand for 10 minutes.
