Straightforward pan-fried Tilapia with plenty of colorful bell peppers can make a fast and effortless, scrumptious and healthier meal! A wonderful recipe if you want to consume more fish.
I’ve in no way been a lot a fish eater. I grew up on frozen fish sticks and salmon patties and, well, that’s all I have to say about that.
The good news is, Culinary School saves the day. I am now forced to cook things I would not otherwise cook. A lot more importantly, the chef instructors are experts at producing e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g taste fantastic.
Even tilapia. Particularly tilapia.
I don’t constantly go for rapid-and-simple recipes, but when I do, we greater not sacrifice AN OUNCE of deliciousness. This tilapia delivers.
The 1st phase to a excellent piece of sauted fish is a crispy, golden brown crust.
Commence by patting the fish dry. If the fish has a whole lot of moisture on the surface, it’s not going to crisp and brown up the way you want. It will just end up steaming in spot.
Paper towels are a excellent way to pat fish dry for food security and convenience causes. Then, follow up with some salt and pepper.
Subsequent, get your pan sizzling. Scorching. Oil-is-commencing-to-smoke sizzling (olive oil gets a wonderful lavender hazy-smoke when it’s sizzling). You can use olive oil or vegetable oil, just not butter (butter will burn).
The tilapia will cook speedily, but don’t move it around in the pan till the crust varieties. If the fish sticks, your pan could not have been hot enough. Or, you didn’t have enough oil. But, you don’t want the fish swimming in oil, either (Negative Pun Club).
Flip the fish once, then reserve in a warm place.
Next up? All the peppers.
I extra plenty of colorful peppers, onions, diced tomatoes, fresh herbs, garlic, lemon juice, and capers. The sauce comes collectively in just a couple of minutes. (You only want two peppers total, but if you want all four colors the way I have it pictured, you’ll certainly use HALF of four in a different way colored peppers. Right? Proper.)
Dinner is completed quickly, but dinner tastes Great. And that’s what counts.
