Today, I am going to show you how to pair an extremely popular fish, Tilapia with one of our Denicola staples, Étouffée!
Here is what you’ll need:
1 medium Tilapia filet per person – this fish is readily available in your local seafood department, fresh or frozen!
1 package of Denicola’s Étouffée Mix
1/2 cup of heavy cream – optional
Your favorite herbs -parsley, chives, thyme and green onions would work well!
To prepare the tilapia – defrost if frozen-you can submerge the frozen packets in a bowl of room temperature water to defrost. This only takes a few minutes! Rub the filet with olive oil, salt & pepper and put in a heated pan on the stovetop. Coating the pan with a non-stick spray or olive oil will prevent sticking! Cook the filets for 5-7 minutes on each side!
Meanwhile – add the Étouffée mix to two cups of water in a pan on the stovetop on medium high! Whisk this mixture until it begins to thicken, be sure to stay with it! Lower the heat to simmer and add a little heavy cream, and your herbs.
Plate your filets and spoon the Etouffee mixture over the fish! A side of pasta, rice or potatoes would complete this meal!
Best of all, this is ready in less than 20 minutes!
