Recipe: Tilapia Fish with Citrus Salad

Fish, it's what's for dinner! My mom made a really nice, yet simple curried fillet of tilapia fish with a yummy citrus salad. The combination of spicy fish and refreshing organge in the salad perfectly complement one another. Mom said she watched a recipe on Giada and got inspired, I love this! 


Later, I'm going to try to create a low-cal version of apple pie, Pear Pie! Using fresh pears from out tree in the backyard. Stay tuned for that!

How to create this delicious and healthy dinner: 
  • Wash the fish pieces, we used frozen store-bought fillets
  • Season with, lemon, salt and pepper, turmeric, mustard powder, coriander leaves chopped, olive oil and garlic powder
  • Heat a little olive oil in a shallow pan, and gently cook on low heat, covered, 2 mins on each side
  • Done!
  • Chop lettuce leaves
  • Peel an orange or tangerine
  • Slice into small pieces or separate the sections (you can also use a grapefruit!)
  • Take the last slice and squeeze out the juice of it
  • Add scallions if you like
  • Season with salt, pepper, lemon, a splash of orange juice, mustard powder and ground flax seed
  • Done!

The cool part about this is, if you save a little salad and tangerine section for your last bite,  the orange beautifully sweetens your mouth, like a little dessert, but also cleanses your palette. so you don't really feel like eating anything new afterward. Neat, right?
