Delicious Tilapia Fish Dish
Easy Delicious Tilapia Fish Dish
You can make a feast out of this very easy delicious Tilapia fish dish. It takes 30 minutes to make and can be served as a main dish. Add a few side dishes such as a bowl of rice for people who prefer rice and fish, a platter with chunks of baguette bread for those who prefer a fish sandwich and a bowl of salad for those who prefer just fish and salad. Add a tray of condiments such as creamy salad dressing, vinaigrette salad dressing, butter, salt and black pepper.
- 4 Tilapia fillets, cut in halves to make 8 pieces
- 1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 large white onion, chopped
- 2 large sweet peppers, cut in strips
- 1 large carrot, cut in stips
- 6 table spoons coconut oil, (use cooking oil of your choice)
- 1 table spoon seasoning
Seasoned Tilapia Fillets
Use fresh unfrozen Tilapia fillets, spread fish on a large platter then pat both sides with paper towel to get rid of any wetness. Sprinkle both sides with the black pepper and salt.
Add the cooking oil to a large non-stick frying pan, heat the oil until it is shimmering or nearing it's smoke point. Place the fillets in pan away from you, leave enough space between each piece so that they do not touch. Fry each sides for 4 to 5 minutes until it is golden brown.
Carefully remove the Tilapia fillets from the pan so that they don't break apart. Place them back on the large platter to rest while you prepare the vegetables.
Add the sweet peppers, carrots, onions and one table spoon of white vinegar to the pan, stir over heat for one minute then add the seasoning of your choice(I used the Flavo Rice Seasoning by Rose Hill) and keep stirring over the heat for another 1 minute. Remove half of the vegetables from the pan and place in a bowl, spread the other half evenly in the bottom of the frying pan. Place the fillets on top of the vegetables and then evenly spread the rest of the vegetables in the bowl on top of the fillets.
Turn the heat off and remove the pan from the stove top to stop the cooking process, cover and serve when ready. This can be served cold or warm.
