I’m back! Thanks for being patient as I enjoyed time with our new baby girl Charlee. Everyone is adjusting well. Trey likes to give her kisses in the morning and thinks it is necessary to give her a pacifier at every waking moment. J and I cherish our growing family…even if things are a little bit crazier, the house is a bit messier, and meals aren’t quite as fancy.
A few weeks ago J fixed up this beautiful and nutritious meal. He has been helping with the “house” duties even more now that we are on “man-to-man” defense.
Pan Fried Tilapia
1/4 cup crushed crackers or whole wheat bread crumbs
2 T Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds fresh tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
In a shallow dish crack two eggs and beat. Coat tilapia in eggs. In a plastic bag combine crackers, Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Place tilapia in plastic bag and lightly coat each side. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place coated fish in oiled pan. Brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side or until fish flakes apart with fork. Garnish with parsley.
Easy tartar sauce: few tablespoons olive oil mayo, dash of lemon juice and pickle juice, and diced up pickles. Stir to combine and serve overtop fish.
I appreciate you all sticking with me during my leave! I plan to keep bringing you healthy, nutritious meals but not as often. However, searching past recipes will always give you new ideas. Each month go back to the previous years and try a new meal!
Until next time…
look good, do good, feel good
