Have you tried those pre-measured spice recipe packets from McCormick? Our local grocery store was having a buy two get one free on them so I bought them, thinking it was nifty to have the recipe plus the pre-measured spices in one package. Marketing genius! I tried the Chicken Tikka Masala - a blend of garam masala, cumin, garlic, paprika, red pepper - on tilapia and Hubby rated it a 5.5 on a scale of 1-5. Yes!
Four ingredients - couldn't be easier. Six tilapia filets, one can petite diced tomatoes, 2 T. diced cilantro, and the McCormick Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe Inspirations. I opened all the little packets of seasoning and mixed them all together. Then, I salted the fish lightly and sprinkled on about 1 t. of the seasoning on the filets. I melted a little butter (2T or so) and sauteed the fish til done; then removed to a warm dish.
In the pan drippings I added the tomatoes, about 2 t. more* of the seasoning, and the cilantro. I let it come to a boil, then poured over the fish. I served it with hot rice and a salad.
The sauce was fresh tasting with just the right amount of spice. So GOOD. And it fit perfectly into the healthy eating plan Hubby and I are following. Even my 16 yr old. loved it. Tilapia is one of our favorite fishes - so mild and goes with so many things. Excellent in fish tacos! I'm pretty sure we'll be having this again - try it and let me know what you think!
*There is still a bit of the seasoning left...what shall I add it to next?
