Ingredients for this easy fish recipe
This dish is very much like my Tuscan Chicken dish pictured below. I just substituted fish for the chicken and add some fresh spinach. With this dish, I used items I always have on hand: frozen tilapia, a jar of Aldi’s artichoke salad, sundried tomatoes, capers, garlic and fresh spinach. The artichoke salad was similar to this but I bought mine at Aldi.
This tilapia dinner took about 10 minutes to make while the rice takes about 20 minutes. If you are low carb you can use cauliflower rice and it will take even less time! So a delicious fish dinner was made in less than 2o minutes. How great is that!
Mediterranean Fish Dinner Recipe
First you thaw the fish and pat dry. I used frozen tilapia but you could use fresh fish obviously or any kind of mild white fish. I only had 3 loins but normally I would have used 4. Melt some butter in a pan over medium high heat.
Brown the fish on both side for about 2 minutes. Next pour the whole jar of artichoke salad over the fish. Add your fresh chopped spinach, capers, garlic and sun dried tomatoes.
Cover and cook over medium heat for 5 – 10 minutes.
Here’s this easy Mediterranean fish dinner in a nutshell:
- Pat dry the fish filets or loins. I used thawed tilapia.
- Melt some butter in a pan over medium high heat.
- Brown the fish on both side for about 2 minutes.
- Next pour the whole jar of artichoke salad over the fish and add chopped spinach, capers, garlic and sun dried tomatoes.
- Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes
- Serve as is or over rice or even cauliflower rice.
My husband ate it over rice but you could eat it as is for a low carb dinner or even with cauliflower rice.
Also you could add some feta cheese on top which I think that would be tasty too! I’m always looking for easy fish dinner ideas so when I find one as easy as this it becomes a regular for us. I hope you like it as much as my family did. Enjoy! The nutritional information for 1 serving is:
