  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tbs. parsley
  • 1 pound Tilapia, in four fillets
  • 1 lemon, wedged
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400º.
  2. Combine the cheese, paprika, parsley, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Drizzle oil on the fish, then dredge the fish in the cheese mixture.
  4. Place the fish fillets on a foil lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake until the fish is opaque, about 10-12 minutes.
  6. Garnish with lemond wedges.

Easiest Risotto


  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbs. butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water, boiling

  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • salt, to taste


  1. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet, over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion, stirring occasionally. Sauté until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the rice, stirring continuously for about 3 minutes, until the grains of rice are glistening and well covered.
  4. Increase the heat to high, and add the broth and 1 cup of boiling water.

  5. Bring it to a boil, while stirring occasionally.
  6. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for another 15-20 minutes (test to check if it is done after 15 minutes).
  7. Remove from heat. Stir in the zest, Parmesan, and salt.

Lemon & Garlic Broccoli


  • 2 tbs. butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbs. lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Steam the broccoli until it is tender, but still firm. You don't want to let the broccoli get mushy. It should only take about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Heat the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic, and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Add the cooked broccoli, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  4. Cook only long enough to combine the ingredients.

I tried the Lemon & Garlic Broccoli recipe; I fried it using olive oil instead of broccoli. Its tastes very nice and goes well with breads.
