Busy Work Day Dinner

Today was my first day back to school after a pleasant summer vacation. My husband and I decided we would do our grocery shopping for the week on the weekends, so planning and preparing meals isn't such an ordeal each evening after a big work day. For tonight, we planned a tilapia dinner, which delighted our cravings for a white, flaky, and mild fish.

I began with coconut oil spray and a dollop of coconut oil in a stainless steel pan.


I heated oil in the pan while I prepared the egg batter (egg, seasoning, and German mustard) and bread coating (Italian, organic bread crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper) for the fish.





I also prepared organic risotto as our side dish...


This is simple and wonderful along side of fish and cooks about the same amount of time as the tilapia. Now it's time to prepare and cook the fish...





Let me tell you, the coconut oil is not only incredibly healthy, but makes this delicate fish taste amazing!


I served this up with a delicious veggie salad (made with organic greens and veggies of course:) and topped with our favorite salad dressing.


And, there you have it... a very easy meal with a very special appeal!! You really must try it... it just might become a favorite of yours on a busy work day.

It's okay if this meal tastes "fishy!" YUM!

This is really good recipe, complete with all healthy nutrients, especially when using and adding coconut oil, which we can get more health benefits including skin and health care, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, stress relief and a lot more!

A newly found Italian recipe. It will make my week end busy this Saturday. At first, I thought, it's difficult to cook. But once it is served with love and enjoyment, there's really fulfillment in cooking. I love veggies!
