Broiled Basil Tilapia - Yummy Goodness!


I'm down to one edamame snack left, oh no!!! What's a girl to do??? I guess enjoy each and every bite :)

Which is what I did this afternoon, along with the yummy peach.



Dinner came together really well today, it was so simple and tasty that I think it made the cute into my regular rotation of meals! Here is the pesto sauce and the pearl couscous that I use for these recipes. I love the pre-made pesto because I can add it to any dish and completely transform the flavor! It's great knowing that it's in the fridge ready to add some flava!

Broiled Basil Tilapia
  • Tilapia Filets
  • Pre-made pesto sauce

This was as simple as turning the broiler on, placing the filets on a baking pan lined with foil and adding the salt & pepper. I broiled the tilapia for 2-3 minutes on each side. After both sides were cooked, I added a spoonful of the pre-made basil and popped it back in for another 2-3 minutes and it was done!

During that time, I was trying to multi-task and the pre-cut veggies certainly did help with the following dish!

Zucchini Pearl Couscous Surprise
  • 1 cup pearl couscous
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 yellow zucchinis (any kind will do) diced
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste

For this dish, I cooked the couscous in the boiling water and while that was cooking I stir-fried the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes. I added the zucchini and tomatoes and stir-fried for another 5 minutes. Once the zucchini was tender I added the couscous, parsley, salt & pepper and my side dish was ready!


For dessert, I just had a cup full of some sweet and refreshing watermelon.

All in all, and despite the Twizzler attack, today was a much healthier day :)

Did I read?

I have an hour to do some reading, and I'm going to take full advantage.

Goodnight all :)
