Day 2 of first full week back to work – check! And it was a lovely, productive day I must say 🙂 Felt great (not as great as gettin’ my tan on though mwhaha)
But we don’t want to talk about work here now do we? Yea, thought so 😉
How about we talk about ohhh food instead?! Now that’s more like it…..!
On the menu tonight was round 3 with Mrs. Cooking Light “bible” and also a seafood inspired meal in the spirit of our recent cruise (not that a certain someone has been thinking all day that ‘last week at this time I was laying by the pool, sipping a mojito, not working, etc’… nope a certain someone sure didn’t do that…)
- Cornmeal Crusted Tilapia
- Homemade Pierogi w/ Onion Butter
- Veggie Blend
First up, the fish. A mix for dipping was made out of these guys:
- corn meal
- chili powder
- olive oil
- tilapia filets
Mix together the corn meal, flour, salt and chili powder in a bowl. Also mix the egg and a spoonful of water in another bowl. Sprinkle the fish with some more salt and chili powder and get ready to dunk!
Egg wash, flour mixture then into a hot pan coated with a tblsp of olive oil – flippin’ half way through until done and a nice crust has formed around the fish just like so… 😛
We also had some homemade pierogi from the Christmas Eve dinner that I had frozen (I made like 100 and there was no way all that hard work was goin’ to waste haha) – I figured they would be a great accompaniment to the tilapia. Of course some green onion butter was in order for a topping as well. Moderation, right…. 😉
Plus some veggies to round things out 🙂 Ahhh a delicious meal on the table in mere minutes!
Check out how moist and yummy the fish turned out, oooo lala!
Cooking Light wins again! This recipe was so fresh and deelish, definite easy weeknight meal and pretty darn tasty at that 🙂
