Cool Product Alert: Tilapia

I heart these.

These are one of my "I don't really feel like cooking but I still want something yummy" go-to meals.

15 minutes and you are eating. Take that Rachel Ray Wa-Pow!

Sea Cuisine Tortilla Crusted Tilapia Filets

I get them at Costco. 9 filets come in a box for $11.49

Toss one per person (early outs might even half it) on a oiled cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 425 degrees.

You can eat them as is of course with a veggie on the side but my favorite thing to do is make a Fish Taco Salad. A very Southern California meal.

Shelly's Fish Taco Salad

1 Tortilla Crusted Tilapia Filet (per salad)
Mixed Lettuce Greens
Cilantro Lime Yogurt Dressing (recipe below)
Colby Jack Cheese, grated

Place cooked fish filet on top of greens. Sprinkle with cheese and serve with a dollop of dressing.

Shelly's Cilantro Lime Yogurt Dressing

3 1/2 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt (I use 2%)
2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro
1 1/2 Tablespoons Good Olive Oil
Squirt or two of Lime
Kosher Salt to taste
a few twists of Black Pepper

Whiz in a mini food processor till blended.
