Okay guys, here’s the deal; I love you… I really do. And I love eating. I also love healthy food, cooking, and talking. And although, I don’t love, love, love writing I can deal with it in order to share with you all of the things I really do love.
But what I don’t love…what I really, really, really DO NOT LOVE, is trying to get a decent g*#$d#*$ picture of the dish I want to blog about!
I mean, am I alone here?!
When I’m done cooking, I want to eat. I don’t want to spend ten minutes trying to figure out how to take a half way decent picture of my dinner.
My husband tells me I’m crazy and that the pictures are “good enough“. But I don’t want good enough…I want superb. I WANT YOU TO WANT TO LICK THE SCREEN! That’s what I want.
I guess I’ll just have to keep on practicing… bah!
I love Tilapia because it is good, healthy, easy, and CHEAP… what else could you ask for??
I made this for dinner last night and served it with my “Greens and Beans” and let me tell ya, it’s another one of those SO GOOD, SO EASY meals (my favorites).
I added some flax into the breading in order to increase the Omega-3’s in the meal. It worked like a charm and I’m telling you, you don’t even know that’s it’s in there.
This is definetly a great “no-time-no-effort” week night meal!
Breaded Tilapia (with Flax!)
Yield: Serves 4
- ¾-1 lb Tilapia fillets
- ¼ cup of whole-wheat breadcrumbs
- 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds
- 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- ½ tsp oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the broiler.
Combine breadcrumbs, flax seeds, cheese, and spices in a bowl.
Season tilapia with salt and pepper before dipping into breadcrumb mixture, the fillets should be moist enough that the coating will adhere without having to dip them into any eggs first.
Place breaded fillets on a baking sheet that is covered with foil and has been lightly coated with cooking spray.
Pop under the broiler for about three minutes per side. They go fast, so keep your eye on them!
