I’m always looking for easy, healthy ideas for weeknight cooking and … I’ve found a winner! The entire meal took less than 30 minutes to prepare and we sat down to a dinner so tasty and beautiful, I’m going to serve it the next time we entertain.
My “bestie” Judy, introduced me to the Tortilla Crusted Tilapia from Costco – white & flaky fillets with tortilla, chipotle & lime crust – so good! All you need to do is take out the number of frozen tilapia fillets you need ( I served two fillets per person), place them on a baking sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes in a 425 degree oven. This so fits my definition of quick, easy, and delicious!
I paired our weeknight Tilapia with an Asparagus, Cashew Salad with an Orange Vinaigrette (you’ll find the recipe under salads & sides in the recipe tab), and fingerling potatoes drizzled with a little brown butter. Wow, really an amazing weeknight dinner!
Here’s another idea – Turn this simple meal into a masterpiece like my “bestie” did; she served the Tilapia at a dinner party, paired it with the Barefoot Contessa’s Orzo and Roasted Vegetable side dish and a lovely bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. – really a WOW experience!
The Tortilla Crusted Tilapia fillets from Costco are going to become a staple in my freezer – enjoy!
