Joshua's Favorite Tilapia With Jasmine Rice

"This is my very own creation, I whipped this up one day quite by accident. I call this Joshua's favorite Tilapia, because my husband (like me) could eat this 7 nights a week if we could. This is the easiest way to cook Tilapia, and if you are watching those calories then you need not worry this is extremely low fat, oh and did I mention TO DIE FOR !!! This recipe is SIMPLE with FEW ingredients, but has the potential to add what ever you want. I like it AS IS !"

ingredients

  • tilapia fillet
  • fat-free Italian salad dressing (I use Wishbone)
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper
  • 14 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 14 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 12 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup jasmine rice (uncooked)

directions

  • Pour your dressing straight from the bottle into the pan, I usually make sure the bottom is covered but not too much, I gave approximate measures here.
  • Place the fillets on top of the dressing in the pan.
  • Sprinkle with all 4 seasonings (all the measurements I gave are approximate). I usually just sprinkle a generous amount on each filet. Don't leave out the cumin it is a wonderful addition to the fish.
  • Saute the fillets on med-low heat approximate 4-5 minutes each side until fish flakes easy with a fork.
  • While the fish is slowly cooking, cook the rice, using 2 1/2 cups water and 1 cup rice, with butter, bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes on low.
  • Serve the fillet on top of the Jasmine rice. I will usually add more s&p and cumin according to my taste.

    Really good and SO easy!!! Even my boys enjoyed it. After the tilapia was cooked, I threw a bunch of fresh spinach on top and put a lid on it to wilt. Used brown rice (what we prefer), but that was the only change. I don't think I even used 1/4 cup of salad dressing, and that is such a low cal/fat way to prepare it. Thanks so much!

    Thank you for the recipe, I didn't have all the ingredients so what I did was substitute balsamic vinaigrette for Italian dressing, garlic salt for regular salt, and dried parsley for cumin and Old Bay. Regardless, the tilapia came out soooo delicious! Next time hopefully I can try it with the original ingredients, but thank you for the initial recipe!!

    This was pretty good but the salad dressing was a little overpowering to the fish. Thanks!!

    We really enjoyed this dish. The kids 2 & 5 ate it without a problem. We had this with sugar snap peas and wild rice.

    Well, Shirley, I finally got some Old Bay seasoning on a trip to Buffalo so I was able to finally try this recipe. We just loved it. The only change I made was to substitute basmati rice for the jasmine rice as I don't really care for jasmine rice. Otherwise, it's a winner!

    If I could rate it higher than 5 stars, I would. My fish hating DH even liked it. I had some chicken broth to use up, so used it in the rice instead of water, but did everything else as written. Thank you for sharing such a wonderfully delish and easy recipe.

    Everyone loved this. I did not make the jasmine rice. I subbed some rice pilaf made with brown rice. My nieces loved it and so did DH. I also skipped the Old Bay, but I will try it next time. I made this on my electric griddle, and it worked great! Thanks, I will make this often!

    Wow! This was so good. I eyeballed all of the ingredients and it was perfect. I added dried onions to my jasmine rice and used chicken broth instead of water to cook in. I also cooked the rice in my rice cooker because it is always perfect that way. I sauteed frozen peas in butter and tossed them with the cooked rice. The combination of the dressing and the seasonings made a wonderful sauce that just tasted wonderful over the rice. I am really impressed with how easy, healthy and tasty this is. Thanks for a great recipe!

I love ones with pictures and love, love TOH ones. I have got my famous tilapia with jasmine rice published in TOH and have a few published in some GBP. I will find any excuse to buy a cookbook lol. I like practical cookbooks, nothing strange or difficult. Simple ordinary everyday family recipes.</p> <p><br /><br /><img src=http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/8283/mybannerglitter0bf587ff.gif border=0 alt=Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com! /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v51/tiggrr34/Graphics/HolidayOrnamentSwapTag2011-4.jpg alt= width=200 height=266 /></p>
