he gave this one a 10

This week I finally organized my weekly dinners by planning the menu for each night this week. We went to the grocery Sunday to get all the necessary ingredients that we didn't already have in the pantry/fridge.

Monday nights I go to BSF (as stated in previous post), so I haven't ever made anything for hubs on those nights. I tried to come up with something that I could make and then leave before it's ready. Quiche. He loves it, so that was the ticket. Leslie and I went on our run, and then I came back and started on the quiche while she made the smoothies for us to take to BSF. The quiche was delish, and he enjoyed it while watching Monday night football.

Last night I tried a new recipe. I want to start cooking more fish items so it doesn't seem like we are always either having a variety of chicken or a variety of something ground turkey. I found a recipe for Tilapia that looked simple and tasty, so I went for it. HE LOVED IT! Said he could eat it every week.

So here it is. Broiled Tilapia Parmesean.

ready in 15 minutes max
(this is for 8 servings, I adjusted it for only 2 fillets)

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (we don't have mayo in our house, so I just used a little sour cream)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets

Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.

Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

I made couscous and green beans (the only green veggie tdud eats), and our plates were licked clean!

Haha. I am worse than both of you about organizing recipes! But I am going to try this recipe b/c you are right, I feel like all I cook is chicken & the hubs is definitely sick of it!
