Fish is an easy dinner. I typically serve it on Monday (sometimes other days as well), so I don't start the week feeling weighed down by cooking. I stumbled upon this idea a couple of weeks ago, and it has been a big hit.
Have you ever seen this product? I ordered it online, and can assure you that much more will be coming to my house. It's great in this recipe.
1 pound tilapia filets
2 tbsp butter
1 cup water
2 tsp clam base
1/2 cup cold water
2 tbsp cornstarch
Spray a skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat and place the tilapia in the melted butter. Sprinkle generous amounts of lemon pepper over the fish (no salt, because lemon pepper contains salt), and cover to cook for a couple of minutes, until the edges of the fish are white. Flip the fish, sprinkle with lemon pepper again, cover and cook until done. Remove to a plate and place the pan lid over the fish to keep it warm.
Add 1 cup water to the skillet and stir to loosen any fish stuck to the bottom of the pan. Stir in the clam base, and heat to a simmer. Whisk the cornstarch into the cold water, then whisk it into the pan; cook, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Return the fish to the pan, heat through, and serve over rice.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
