Recipe by Shirl J 831
READY IN: 25mins


  • 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)


  • 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.
