After work I’m always starving, and let’s be honest, I can get pretty hangry. So I’m always looking for quick and healthy meal. A friend of mine helped inspire this post. We made this while having a girl’s night in. It’s a one dish meal that’s amazingly satisfying. (It’ll also help me get through the huge bag of frozen tilapia filets that I bought.) The flavors from the fish and vegetables really meld together.
So here we go.
What you need:
1 tilapia filet
2 cups of fresh spinach
1 cup of bell peppers (chopped into strips)
salt & pepper to taste
A couple dashes of garlic powder
a couple dashes of chili powder or red chili flakes (if you like it spicy!)
1 tsp olive oil
On the stove, heat up the olive oil in a pan. Season the tilapia filet with the salt, pepper, garlic and chili. Place the filet in the pan. In the same pan add the spinach and bell peppers. Add more salt and pepper. Cover the pan & cook on medium heat. occasionally stir the vegetables, and flip the fish when it seems about halfway done. When the fish is done and vegetables cooked, serve and enjoy!
*this recipe could also be really great if you add onion in with the bell peppers and spinach. I personally don’t love onions so I didn’t add them, but they could be a really great addition!
