I was craving something light, healthy, and super easy tonight. I went to the grocery store in hopes to get wild Alaskan salmon but of course it was too expensive at Whole Foods ($15.99/lb?!?) so instead I went for the fresh tilapia. I also picked up fresh broccoli and a couple sweet potatoes for dinner. This recipe for tonight was very simple but so, so delicious. Plus, the prep time + cooking time was less than 30 minutes!
First, I preheated the oven for 400 degrees, pulled out the ingredients, poured myself a glass of wine, and got to work.
For the tilapia, I drizzled melted butter and then sprinkled crushed almonds on top. I put the fish on an aluminum wrapped baking sheet and baked for about 14 minutes. Easy peazy!
I also included microwaved broccoli and a large sweet potato to the meal.
This is one of my favorite “go-to-meals” on a week night!. I used to prep the fish with melted butter and crumbled ritz crackers but since I’m trying to be more paleo, I went with almonds tonight. Ritz crackers is actually what a lot of restaurants use for there fancy fish meals! Who knew??
