It totally does.
But I am not going to discriminate.
I can't leave out all that deliciousness.
I also want to throw something else out there.
I am not a fish lover. I don't like very many fish or seafood dishes. But this one is really mild and so dang good. I LOVE this recipe.
Buuuuut, if you hate fish, and just can't bring yourself to cook it.....you can make this recipe with chicken breasts. I have done it for my kids, and it is really good too.
So here you have it....the best fish recipe I have EVER ate!
Now let's make this.
Here is what you need.
Tilapia Loins- (I get mine from Costco, in the freezer section.)
Veggies- A few different kinds, whatever you like. (I used onions, bell peppers & zucchini)
Tomatoes- Either fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped....or canned diced tomatoes.
Croutons & Potato Chips- about 1 1/2 to 2 cups each, crushed into crumbs.
Parmesan Cheese- about 1 cup grated.
Butter- 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Salt, Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Garlic Powder
Now, let's assemble.
-First, you want to slice or chop your veggies into thin strips, about 2 inches long. Roughly chop tomatoes, if using fresh.
-Last, top the tilapia loins with crumb topping. You want to just pile an even amount onto each piece of fish. If you have any crumbs left, just sprinkle them on to the veggies.
You can eat this on it's own, if you are looking for a one-dish dinner. Or, serve it with a salad, or some perfect white rice, like I did. (Try my method for perfect rice every time.)
Oh my gosh, you guys. This is such a satisfying meal. The fish is super mild, the veggies are caramelized and so delicious, and the crumbs....YUM.
*If you want to have leftovers like I did, this reheats really well in the oven. That way, the crumbs aren't soggy and the fish doesn't get completely overcooked by reheating in the microwave. Just put the leftovers onto a lined baking sheet and reheat at 350 until warmed through. (It will take about 10 minutes.)
