This is what I posted on Facebook last night-
And I ate this as leftovers tonight....was delicious and low cal:
Pineapple Tilapia Marinade with Cilantro, Peppers Cubed & Monterrey Jack Cheese on Sunday, November 7, 2010 at 7:21pm
4 Tilapia fillets
3/4 cup of diced pineapple (save the juice!)
Sea salt and grated pepper to taste
2/3 cups of Monterrey jack cheese (I like to put some chopped jalapeno in there)
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 fresh chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon of canola oil
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 red sweet onion, diced (grab a washcloth or Kleenex for the eyes!)
dill, to taste
Making the dinner:
Combine fish and pineapple (with the juice) in a big bowl or flat tray. Season with salt and pepper and marinate for 15 minutes on both sides. I might recommend ya do more, but not toooo much, K?
Pre-heat the over to about 250 or slightly more. I have an inefficient oven, so I put it up to 300 degrees.
Separately, heat oil in a big a** large skillet over high heat - burn it up baby...for about 5 minutes.
You should have already combined the peppers, onions, salt, pepper, dill, and canola oil for about 10 - 15 minutes.
Whoops, forgot to mention that...
So, back to the huuuge skillet - saute the mixture until just cooked through. This may only take 5 minutes.
Then, add the fist mixture and saute for 2 minutes or longer (don't overcook it). Flip the fish once.
Make sure it's *just* cooked through. Flakey white is the goal for this chicken-esque fish.
Then, pull out the flat oven tray, and dump everything, carefully, I should say, onto the tray.
Put the cheese on-top of the fish. Add the fresh cilantro.
Now, everything is in the tray, basking in the heat. Keep a close watch on the fish in the oven.
You just wanna keep that stuff in there until the cheese is melted. It's sooooo very good.
I just ate this and had to share this recipe with you. I am guessing that this will make an excellent leftover package tomorrow night.
I ate it with sweet potato mash that I heated with melted butter, Saigon cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
Okay, now, back to the Philadelphia Eages, who look like they're gonna pull it off and beat Indiana.
No offense to my friends that are Colts fans. It may not be a repeat year for the Colts (fingers crossed).
Probably I'm going to jinx the Eagles now that I just typed that.
Have a great night!
