1/4 cup of olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic and some chili powder
Prepare marinade in a bowl by combining the olive oil, lemon juice and spices. Then place the tilapia in the bowl and let it marinate for about 20 minutes. (you can use this time to prepare the side dish such as couscous or rice and a fresh garden salad) Once it has marinated, place the fillets on a grill pan and cook for about 5 minutes each side. You can serve this with rice, couscous or in a wrap.
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 onion, diced
2 small carrots diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
4 pieces of Salmon
Place the Salmon in 9×13 pan. Sauté the onion then add the diced celery and carrots. Once that has browned slightly, add the can of diced tomatoes. Spice with salt, pepper, paprika and garlic. Add about 1 tsp of lemon juice and 2-3 tablespoons of sugar. Stir well to combine. Pour the mixture on top of the salmon and bake on 400 for 20-25 minutes.
My mother gave me this recipe for Tilapia fish and it has become my favorite dinner. It’s easy to prepare, tastes great and my husband loves it as well so this one is really a keeper!
- Tilapia Fish
- Mayo (to cover the fish with)
- Soy sauce (just a dash or two on each fish)
- Corn flake crumbs (to cover the fish with)
- Lemon slices (sometimes I use lime as well)
Spray a baking pan with non stick cooking spray. Put the Tilapia in the pan. Spread the mayo on the fish. Put a dash or two of soy sauce on each fish. Sprinkle the corn flake crumbs on the fish so they are all covered. Then lay the lemon slices on top of the fish. Cover with foil and bake on ’400 for about 20-25 minutes.
This is a tasty and easy way to prepare Salmon. It is best served with couscous and steamed asparagus. I like to use toasted pine nuts near east couscous. It takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and has a great crunch to it.
Salt, pepper, paprika for seasoning
Place salmon in the pan. Sprinkle on fresh lemon. Then season with the salt, pepper & paprika.
Bake on 400 for 20-25 min uncovered.
This was the first dish I ever cooked. It was about a couple of weeks after I got married and my husband was getting a bit annoyed of having to shlep to my moms for dinner every night, while my mother was upset I wasn’t using my brand new dishes she had so carefully selected for me. It was easier playing the role of wifey when I was getting mazol tovs and recieving gifts. Preparing dinner on the other hand, was a little more diffiult. In a panic I called my sister Tova and told her I had to make dinner and had no idea what to cook. Give me something good and give me something easy! (I didn’t think my confidence could handle a disaster the first night in the kitchen) I can’t remember her exact wording, but being that she is married almost 10 years with 4 boys, I am sure she must have laughed at my fear and told me to chill out. And then she gave me the following recipe.
Mikee’s Sesame Teriyaki Sauce (If you can’t find this at your local grocery store, then combine soy sauce with some teryaki sauce and add some sesame seeds if you would like)
Place the salmon in a pan. Pour the sauce on top. Cover with foil and bake for about 20-25 minutes on 350′. I serve this with Near East couscous. (They have a large selection of flavorings and take less than 5 minutes to prepare. My favorite is the toasted pine nuts)
