|The hubby's portion|
This dish got a hubby rating of two servings and a fish hating wife rating of, "I was able to eat almost 3/4 of my piece (the most fish I have ever eaten)". Our poochieroo also enjoyed my leftovers.
Fish1/2 cup prepared pesto
3 tilapia filets
salt and pepper to taste
Bruschetta1/2 loaf whole grain baguette (I buy mine at Panera, cut it in half, and freeze small portions). Sliced and toasted in small rounds.
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. Tastefully Simple Dried Tomato Pesto Mix (see below for directions for the bruschetta without this)
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
4 large tomatoes, diced
2 tbsp. fresh chopped basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Directions for FishRemove fish from packaging. Dry off with paper towels. Season both sides with S & P. Lightly coat a large sauté pan with cooking spray or olive oil. When the pan is hot, place the fish in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes, turn and cook on the other side. Pour pesto over fish, spread to coat evenly. Place the lid over pan, remove it from the heat and let sit for 3 minutes.
Directions for bruschettaPrepare the TS Tomato Pesto Mix according to package directions, set aside. Put chopped tomatoes in a medium bowl, sprinkle with S & P. Pour over the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and dried tomato pesto mix, toss to coat.
PlatingPlace 1 piece of fish on plate, use a large spoon to pour some additional on top. Put 1 spoonful of bruschetta topping on fish. Serve with additional bruschetta topping and baguette rounds. Sprinkle with fresh basil. Drizzle with additional balsamic vinegar, if desired.
