Watching the lbs.

Wednesday, May 16, 2012
As many of you know I've been on a quest for physical fitness that I believe will help me keep a sound body and mind.  :).  It is so hard to find tasty, healthy recipes that are fast and easy to make.  I usually get home around 8 PM and the last thing I want to do is cook an elaborate dinner.  My hubby and I have gotten used to cooking together now.  It's fun.  I know, when did I become the domestic type? Anyway, I'd like to share a recipe that is tasty, healthy and easy to make: garlic, marinated tilapia.  We buy our fish fresh so everyday V stops by the grocery store to buy fish or chicken.  I'm avoiding beef, remember?  The recipe is very straight forward.  While you preheat the oven to 400 degrees you can make the marinade.  The actual recipe involves 1 tablespoon of butter but we substituted it with light butter.
1 tablespoon of  light butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of parsley flakes
1 teaspoon of garlic salt
1/2 a squeezed lemon

Melt butter in micro wave for 9 seconds, then mix all the ingredients above together.
Spray baking dish with PAM.
Rinse tilapia fillet under cold water.
Pour marinade over fillets and sprinkle a bit of cayenne pepper and salt.  Bake for 13 minutes. Then broil for 3 minutes (optional if you like it a bit crispy).  If not bake for 15 minutes.
DONE! :)

Our sides included a garden salad and steamed veggies.  V always makes our dressings.  Here's a simple recipe for his vinaigrette: Mix olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano flakes, salt and pepper.  That's it! Pretty simple right?
