I love eating well. But there’s one thing that I love more than eating well: Easy cooking!
B goes out of town for business every now and then, and when I’m alone, don’t want to cook something complicated just for me. Guess what I’m having tonight? This dish!
I like tilapia. It’s one of those go-to fish that doesn’t have a fishy taste or smell, and defrosts completely under running water in 2 minutes. Easy and delicious.
30 Minute Tilapia Recipe
- 2 filets of tilapia thawed
- lemon juice
- Goya Adobo powder*
- ground oregano**
- garlic powder
- black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking dish with a healthy non-stick oil.
Place thawed filets flat-side down in pan. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the fish.
Sprinkle the spices over the tilapia, to taste.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
Serve while hot.
That’s it. Really. And it’s delicious!
Goya Adobo powder is an all-seasoning powder I grew up seeing in my family’s kitchen. It is a blend of garlic, turmeric, salt, and oregano. You can purchase it with or without black pepper in the Hispanic/Asian aisle of your local supermarket. It is not to be confused with Filipino Adobo (which is also delicious), but it is rather a staple in the kitchens of Caribbean immigrants.
I recommend Mexican oregano as opposed to Italian oregano. Mexican oregano is more fragrant and more flavorful, but Italian oregano will do in a pinch. Italian oregano is what McCormick and other popular companies package. Look for Mexican oregano in the Hispanic/Ethnic aisle of your supermarket.
