Quick and Easy Dinner Ideas: Taco Night!
Hi this is Pranika! Happy New Year!
Cheers to a great new year ahead and healthy, fun meals. Happy eating!
2 tilapia fillets (0.35 lb)
2 tsp olive oil
½ tsp sugar
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
½ tsp sea salt
Pinch of pepper
¼ cup olive oil + 1/8 cup olive oil
½ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp dried oregano
Just before cooking the seafood, you can prepare the Black beans recipe.
Once ready to cook, remove the seafood from the refrigerator. Use a nonstick pan and spray with Pam, plus add 1 tsp of olive oil. Heat pan to medium low. Remove fish with tongs and discard marinade. Cook fish for 3 minutes on each side and set aside in a platter or plate.
Spray pam and add 1 tsp of olive oil to non-stick pan. Heat the pan to medium and cook shrimp for 3-4 minutes, turning to cook evenly. Cook time will vary depending on how big the shrimp is. My youngest loves fish tacos and my oldest makes veggie tacos and takes either the shrimp or fish on the side.
My big kid enjoyed much of the prep work: sprinkling salt and pepper, zesting & juicing the lemon, washing and draining the beans, and especially making the marinade. Choose toppings of your choice, but as suggestions we used: chopped tomatoes, green onions, spinach & red bell pepper; shredded cheese, salsa, and pickled jalapenos.
