Recipe: Tex-Mex Tilapia
Time: 20 min
This is the perfect Lenten dish for those of you who are Catholics like me! I don’t believe I’ve ever had couscous before this meal. And I’m amazed at the ease with which it is made. Put some water, stock, and the couscous in a pot and voilà! The green beans come in a microwavable bag, so that step is simple.
The fish is the only semi-difficult task in the whole meal. The key, I found, this being my second time attempting this meal, was to let the fish cook longer than I expected. Otherwise, you could have one of two problems or both: 1. the fish falls apart or 2. some of the breading comes off.
On to taste…the fish remains moist from the mayonnaise. The southwest blend seasoning mixed with the panko breadcrumbs creates a light crust on the tilapia that is tasteful. The light and flakiness of the fish mixed with a forkful of green beans and salty couscous is the perfect combination of flavor and bite.
