Hello! Sorry for missing last week! Life got a bit crazy.
This week I want to share with you a Tilapia Recipe! Now, it is important to add that not all fish are created equal. Getting a high quality, fresh fish is very important. So be sure that your fish is fresh caught, not farm raised. It is ok if it is frozen, but make sure you find out where it came from!
This recipe I actually concocted myself. I’d seen avocado sauces on a variety of dishes, but I really wanted some fish this night, so I went for making my own. All the spices can be adjusted to taste. Feel free to play around with it and taste as you go!
- 2 filets Tilapia (fresh as you can get)
- 1 cup Broth (Homemade Chicken Broth if you have some)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2-1 cup almond flour (where to buy)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp basil
- any other spices you feel led to include!
Set oven on Broil. Rinse off tilapia. Prepare a oven safe pan with foil and/or some oil on the bottom to help it not stick. Place tilapia on oiled surface and put a piece of butter on top, roughly 1/2 TBS. What ever feels right. *Don’t stick it in the oven yet!*
While oven is warming, in a small sauce pan bring broth to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Add in the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT almond flour. Let simmer on medium/low heat for a couple minutes to reduce a bit. Using a whisk or a emersion blender, combine ingredients to a creamy texture. *It might not be to creamy at first*
Now place tilapia in oven for 2-3 minutes, flip and repeat another 2-3 minutes until it flakes apart with a fork.
Once tilapia is in the oven, begin adding the almond flour to the sauce a little bit at a time, while whisking. Or use emersion blender. Keep adding flour slowly until it is to the texture you would like. It will take more almond flour to get a creamy texture than regular flour.
Top Tilapia with Creamy Avocado sauce. Serve with a nice salad, asparagus, or any other veggie of choice!
Hope you all enjoy this quick and easy recipe!
