Emeals Hawaiian Tilapia

Ingredients: Tilapia, pineapple juice, steak sauce, pepper.

Embellishments: None !

Prep: EASY.  Recipe said to marinade the fish for 30 min, but I cut the time in half.

Cook time: 10 minutes

Comments: Super easy weeknight meal.  Side dish was supposed to be Skillet Carrots with butter and parsley, but I roasted a couple of sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper instead.

This dish was pretty good…not stellar, but pretty good.  Ease of prep pushes it into the thumbs up category.

Emeals Baked Herbed Fish

Emeals Low Carb Plan – Baked Herbed Fish with Spinach Orange Mushroom Salad

Ingredients: (Main Dish) Tilapia, olive oil, garlic powder, marjoram, thyme, pepper, bay leaves, onion, white wine.  (Side dish) Spinach, orange, green onion, mushrooms, lemon juice, olive oil, pepper, toasted almonds.

Embellishments/Substitutions: I didn’t have any marjoram so substituted basil on the fish. The fish recipe also didn’t call for any salt – I added about 1/4 tsp.   I had half an avocado, and 1/4 of a red pepper which I added to the salad.  I didn’t care for the Emeals recipe for the salad dressing (just oil, lemon juice and pepper), so added 1/2 packet of splenda, 1 Tbsp of Balsamic vinegar, and a bit more oil to thicken it up a little.

Cook/Prep time: 20 minutes

Comments:  The fish was quick and easy to prep and tasted delicious, and the salad came together quickly while the fish was in the oven. Very easy weeknight meal for you working parents out there….  Thumbs up!

EMEALS review:  Baked Tilapia with Dill and Veggie trio

I absolutely LOVED this dish – but again deviated pretty heavily from the original.  Prep time was about 5 minutes, cook time was about 10 minutes. A perfect weeknight meal for you all you working parents.

I altered the emeals recipe, because quite honestly, it sounded like the fish was going to turn out to be very bland and tasteless.

Original recipe called for just salt, pepper and dill on the fish, not even a spritz of any oil. I was supposed to top the fish with a sour cream and capers mixture (which I didn’t do).  After my modifications, I really don’t think the fish needed the topping.

So, here are my “tweaks”.

.

Baked Tilapia with Dill

1.5 lb Tilapia
2 large lemons
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Juice one lemon, add the olive oil, salt, pepper, dill and garlic powder, and gave it a good whisk to blend.

Spray the baking sheet lightly with oil, lay the fish out so they are not touching.  Spread the lemon juice/olive oil mixture.  Cook at 400 F for 10 minutes.

Slice the second lemon and use as garnish when serving.  In the meantime, prep the side dish

.
Veggie Trio

8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
12 oz. bag broccoli/cauliflower florets
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Sautee mushrooms in the olive oil.  Steam the broccoli/cauliflower or cook in microwave.  Combine and add salt/pepper taste.
