We've decided to take a new direction in our cooking. We're going healthy!! So, last night I tried a light and crispy fish recipe that was low in calories and high on flavor! It was very good!!
Crispy Tilapia (Or Whatever Fish You Prefer) in Tomato - Cream Sauce
1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce - choose your favorite
1 garlic clove - minced
3 tablespoons half and half - I used fat free to save on calories and fat
4 5 oz tilapia filets
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper (use more or less for your taste buds)
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups Panko crumbs
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Parmesan cheese to garnish
In a medium sauce pan, over medium-low heat, bring the sauce and garlic to a simmer. Stirring occasionally, allow to cook until reduced by half. The sauce will become dark red and thick. Stir in the cream and heat through. Keep warm.
Cover filet in flour, then egg (not pictured), then in panko.
I served with yellow rice and a vegetable mix. Delish!!!
