Fish out of Water

This weekend Jay commented that we haven’t had fish in forever. Well as most women can say, it is very refreshing to hear a request from our man friend that is healthy. So without hesitation, I bought Tilapia at the grocery store.

For Tilapia, I simply grilled it in a pan in a little olive oil with garlic salt and basil. Mmmhmmm delicious!!


But, of course no dish is complete without some healthy sides. Normally I prefer millet with fish, but alas it’s summer so I opted for quinoa instead. Plus, who doesn’t love extra quinoa on their salad?!?!


The second side dish was inspired by a Cooking Light Recipe from earlier this summer. Of course I didn’t exactly follow the directions and made it MY way.

  1. Simply rinse all veggies while heating olive oil in a pan with some garlic.
  2. Lay asparagus in the pan, flip them once they start to really sizzle.
  3. Transfer asparagus into serving dish and top with feta.
  4. Repeat until you have cooked all the asparagus.
  5. I usually cook the tomatoes with the last batch.

Ta-daaa! And that’s dinner.

What healthy recipe did your significant other request recently that surprised you?
