Really awesome fish


Vian

Recommended Posts

So, I just made this for lunch, and it's SUUUUPER simple, but SOOOO tasty.

 

I thawed out a tilapia loin and seasoned it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I was thinking that some cajun blackening spice would be perfect to use instead though. I put some butter in a pan and let it get all melty and hot (med-high temp), then put the fish in and get it browned on both sides. Then I squeezed half a lemon over it and let the lemon juice get caramelized on the outside of the fish, flipping the fish once more until it actually starts to turn black. If it needs to cook more (like mine did) I throw a lid on it and turn the temp way down. Otherwise it's ready to eat. It would work for just about any white fish, and was seriously some of the best fish I've ever tasted. I served it with some sauteed french green beans with the same seasoning on them, and a baked sweet potato.

I like to buy frozen wild caught salmon, thaw it, throw it in a cassarole dish, add butter, garlic powder and onion powder, and bake it.  it's awesome and super easy to make.

This is extremely similar to the way I've been cooking my fish lately (I had been grilling it for a few months, but doing the same thing every day gets monotonous). I thaw the tilapia, add the salt and pepper. Rather than adding garlic powder, I'll throw some minced garlic and onions (both of which are staples in almost everything I eat) into the butter and saute` them for a bit, then add the fish in. I don't think it truly matters one way or the other, more of a preference. I would like to inquire as to what you eat on the side, just for curiosity's sake and to find some ideas of what to do to switch up my every day routine.

I usually have some kind of veggie and maybe mashed sweet potato with it.
