Friday Food

It's Friday!!!  I don't know about you, but I am happy about it.  I have a super easy recipe to share with you today.

  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 Tbsp capers, drained
  • 1 can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced
  • garlic salt
  • lemon pepper
  • 4 tsp smart balance light spread
Preheat your oven to 375.  Lay out 4 sheets of foil (each one large enough to put one fillet and the toppings inside of).  Place one tilapia fillet on each piece of foil and sprinkle with garlic salt and lemon pepper, flip the fish and repeat.  Top each fillet with 1/4 of your tomato slices, artichoke hearts and lemon juice.  Add one Tbsp of capers and one tsp margarine to the top of each fillet.  Fold the foil around the fish and toppings and bake on a cookie sheet for 15 - 20 minutes, until the fish is flaky. Serve over brown rice and enjoy! 

Yesterday I also sauteed a bag of broccoli slaw with olive oil and garlic and put that on the rice too.  It was a nice way to add extra vegetables to this meal.  You can also change up what you put in the foil packet with the fish.  Asparagus is wonderful with this dish.

Now let's talk about brown rice.  How many of you hate how long it takes to cook brown rice?  I thought so.  Let me introduce you to this little beauty.

Frozen organic brown rice found in the Trader Joe's freezer section.  If you have a Trader Joe's near you this is a wonderful and delicious time saver.  All you do is cut a small hole in the top of the bag to vent it and microwave it for 3 minutes.

Yes, fresh brown rice from freezer to table in 3 minutes.

This is a staple in my freezer.

Have a tasty, healthy weekend!!
