Tomato Basil Parmesan Tilapia – 15 Minute Meal

Tomato Basil Parmesan Tilapia 15 minute meal

 

A lot of people eat fish during Lent.  If that describes your family, you may be looking for some new recipes to try.  And even if you don’t eat fish on Fridays during Lent, you will want to make this quick meal.

For this recipe I used tilapia and a McCormick Tomato Basil Recipe and Seasoning Mix packet that was meant for salmon.  I know.  I’m a rebel swapping out the fish like that.

The Tomato Basil Recipe and Seasoning Mix is both full of flavor and full of crunch.  The kids love having a crunchy coating on their fish.  They really eat up the fish I make if it’s both crunchy and has good flavor.  If I leave it fairly plain, only using salt and pepper to season, they’re less likely to eat it.

Tomato Basil Recipe and Seasoning Mix was a hit with all of us.  And since I had some Parmesan in the fridge too, I added some of that to the top.

This meal is very easy to put together.  Once the fish is thawed, you can have dinner ready in about 15 minutes.

Crawfish Chowder in the Slow Cooker

crawfish chowder in the slow cooker

 

This recipe come from an Eat at Home reader.  Lynn from This Day Has Great Potential emailed me to say she has a fantastic recipe for the Slow Cooker Soup series.

Lynn says this is the easiest kind of soup to make.  All of the ingredients go in the slow cooker and then you turn it on.  Can’t get easier than that!

I have never had crawfish before.  The soup calls for frozen crawfish tails.  Lynn says you can find them in the frozen section of most grocery stores.  She found hers at Save-A-Lot.  She explains, “ You do absolutely nothing to them.  I ran the frozen package under warm water enough to loosen them up to dump into my pot.  But really could have thrown them in as-is.  That’s why I thought I’d share with you.  It goes right along with the series you ran recently.  No preparation or cooking anything beforehand.”   [Read more...]

Easy Dijon Tarragon Tilapia – 5 minute prep in morning, 20 minute bake at dinner

Tilapia is so quick and easy to make.  Especially, if you don’t even bother to thaw it.

For this meal, I prepped it early in the day and put the pan in the fridge.  It only took a few minutes to put together.  And at dinner time, all I had to do was turn on the oven and put the pan in to bake.

You could use this prep-fridge-bake system for all kinds of different seasonings, but this time I chose an easy, buttery lemon juice sauce with Dijon mustard, garlic and tarragon.

Sweet n’ Smokey Salmon

I’m excited to introduce you to Rachael, one of the new contributing writers for EaH.  I love her recipe for Sweet n’ Smokey Salmon.  I know that crunchy coating would be a hit with my family.  Rachael blogs at Confessions of a Mom on a Tight Rope.

During the summer, we spend a lot of afternoons at the pool. This leaves little time to make a good, fresh dinner. So, I like to have a few meals that are easy and fast to make. I call them my “go-to meals.”

The meal has to be something I can make in 30 minutes or less. This one takes me about 20 minutes. And it is so delicious. The recipe is below and I also have some step by step photos for you. Enjoy!

You’ll need the following:

You’ll need the following:

  • 1 ½ lbs of salmon, skinned
  • ¼ cup of smoked almonds, whole
  • 2 teaspoons of chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and onion powder
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp of light soy sauce
  • A dash of kosher salt & cracked pepper
  • Ziplock bag
  • Cooking oil

Sweet n’ Smokey Salmon

Yield: 4-6 servings

Sweet n’ Smokey Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lbs of salmon, skinned
  • ¼ cup of smoked almonds, whole
  • 2 teaspoons of chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and onion powder
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp of light soy sauce
  • A dash of kosher salt & cracked pepper
  • Ziplock bag
  • Cooking oil

Instructions

  1. Cruxh the almonds. I put them in the Ziploc and roll over them with a rolling pin until it’s the consistency of breadcrumbs.
  2. Add in the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  3. Spray salmon with cooking spray and coat all over with the almond/spice mixture. I cut mine in pieces and drop in the Ziploc and shake til covered. Note – you don’t want the salmon to be too thick or it won’t cook as fast.
  4. Preheat a large frying pan on medium for a few minutes. Spray with cooking spray and drop in the salmon.
  5. Cook for around 4 minutes on each side. The goal is the salmon will separate easily with a fork.
  6. Once the salmon is done, remove it from the pan.
  7. Add the syrup and soy sauce just for 2 minutes until it thickens.
  8. Serve salmon with the sauce over it. I serve mine over simple coconut rice with asparagus on the side.

Honey Lemon Pepper Salmon – 15 Minute Meal

I love a dinner that tastes special, but takes hardly any time at all.  This one definitely fits that category.

A drizzle of honey and butter contrast with the sharp lemon pepper taste.  Pair this with 2 ingredient Garlic Cream Cheese Smashed Potatoes and a green veggie.  It’s a quick dinner that tastes like you’ve gone all out with the cooking.

Crab Cakes with Creamy Sauce

This summer, we’re taking a road trip in our kitchens.  It’s kind of like a regular road trip, without the chants of “Are we there yet?” and no need to fill up the gas tank.

We’ll be traveling through the country together and sampling dishes as we go.  A couple of weeks ago we stopped in New England for New England Blueberry Coffee Cake.  Today, we’re in the Mid-Atlantic states of Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

There are so many different foods that I could choose to make for each region we visit.  Readers gave me lots of ideas on Facebook of dishes to include.  I only wish I could make a decent at-home version of a Philly Cheese Steak.  I’ve tried, but fallen short.  There’s nothing like the real thing, cheez whiz and all.

One reader mentioned a dish called “Garbage Plate” that is served in the Rochester, NY area.  It’s a hot dog (or sometimes hamburger), fried potatoes, baked beans, onions, mustard all covered with chili-meat sauce.  Wow!  It remind me of the Sloppers that we had in Colorado Springs last summer.  A wonderful mess!

I chose to make Crab Cakes.  I’m not sure how authentic these are.  I’ve only had crab cakes a few times, but these tasted just as good as those I’ve eaten in restaurants.  They’re quick and easy to make, but I’m not going to lie – they are a little expensive.  Yummy though!  Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more...]

Chili Lime Panko Tilapia and a $50 VISA card Giveaway!

Would you believe that delicious fish took only 2 ingredients?  It’s true!

The secret is Kraft Fresh Take.  They are a cheese and crumb (some have panko crumbs, some bread crumbs) mix.  You can do all kinds of things with them.  I chose to do a simple coating on tilalpia and then bake.  It made a crispy crust on the fish and added lots of flavor too.  My family loved it!  [Read more...]

Pan Fried Shrimp Sandwiches with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Last summer, we spent time in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  We ate most of our meals at the beach house, but we did go out once.  After taking a quick survey on Facebook and seeing several readers recommendation Sea-N-Suds, we decided to try it.

Great choice!  It was inexpensive, casual and right on the beach.  I chose to try the Shrimp Sandwich, which was loaded with breaded, deep-fried shrimp.  Delicious!

This pan fried version is simple enough for a weeknight dinner.  It probably rings in at a few less calories than the deep-fried version too.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:  [Read more...]

Grilled Fish Sandwich with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Sometimes, when I sit down to write up a recipe post, I can’t find anything to say.  This is one of those times.

Because, really, the beauty of this sandwich is that it’s so simple.

Grilled fish that cooks up quick on a George Foreman or other indoor grill.

Cajun seasoning  kicks the flavor up a notch or three.

Homemade tartar sauce that is just mayo with a little sweet relish stirred in.

Put it on a bun, serve it with fries and carrot sticks or salad.  It’s a little out of the ordinary, but casual and easy enough for a weeknight supper.

Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more...]
