Dinner tonight: Tilapia With Jasmine Rice

I’ve never really cooked fish before, but I just gave this recipe a try because it seemed easy enough. And it was.  It came out really well and very simple and quick. We’ll definitely do this again.


Tilapia With Jasmine Rice

2 tilapia fillet
fat-free Italian salad dressing
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cumin
2 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon margarine or 1 tablespoon butter
1 cup jasmine rice (uncooked)
Directions:Pour your dressing straight from the bottle into the pan, I usually make sure the bottom is covered but not too much, I gave approximate measures here.

Place the fillets on top of the dressing in the pan.

Sprinkle with all 4 seasonings (all the measurements I gave are approximate). I usually just sprinkle a generous amount on each filet. Don’t leave out the cumin it is a wonderful addition to the fish.

Saute the fillets on med-low heat approximate 4-5 minutes each side until fish flakes easy with a fork.

While the fish is slowly cooking, cook the rice, using 2 1/2 cups water and 1 cup rice, with butter, bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes on low.

Serve the fillet on top of the Jasmine rice.
