Tilapia w/ Honey and Mustard sauce garnished with Mango

Thursday's treat!!!

You didn't think because I was doing the September challenge I would neglect my Thursday treat did you?
Good...because here it is!

First I have to admit this was put together as I went along. Another one of those days I got home and was like huh? What are we going to eat?

Ingredients:
-Tilapia fish
-honey
-mustard
-olive oil
-mango fruit (sliced or cubed)
-tomatoes
-lettuce
-small potatoes (optional)

Start to finish this took me about 40 minutes tops.

In a medium bowl I added 3 tbsps of mustard and 2 tbsps of honey, you can play around with amounts to your liking. I took 3 pre-packaged Tilapia pieces out of the freezer, ran them under some water for a few then I just rinsed them lightly and placed them in the bowl mix until fully coated. The fish weren't totally frozen like a brick since I had bought the bag day before so that was help with defrost process lol.
I added 2 tbsps of olive oil to flat skillet I was using turned up to medium heat. Flipped fish around a few more times when oil was ready, added the fish.
I cooked them about 10 minutes on each side or until turned lightly brown in color and light crisp.



While that was going on I made a side salad of lettuce and tomatoes, coated with remainder of sauce from the Tilapia.
I bought earlier in the week a pre-cut package of mango so that saved me some time.
For myself I baked 2 small red potatoes my daughter opted out.
Fish lightly brown and crisp and ready to serve.
Topped with my cubed mango pieces, yummy.
The salad was awesome with the sauce too!!!
I thought to myself...hey not bad for thinking off the top of your head.
Healthy, quick, fun and easy.
Enjoy.
Always stress free xo

  7. The last time I had tilapia I didn't like it at all, but must say this sounds tasty. Perhaps I should give it another chance.
