Lemon Curry Tilapia

The Menu:
Lemon Curry Tilapia

The Original Recipe:
I found this on whatsonmymenu.blogspot. It looked so simple and delicious. I didn't make the cucumber salad that went with it. I just wanted the fish!


Lemon Curry Tilapia with Cool Cucumber Salad

Ingredients:

3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt (I used Greek)

1/2 cucumber, peeled and shredded (I suggest dicing instead)

1 carrot, shredded

juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper

2 T olive oil

4 4-oz tilapia fillets (I just used 2)

1 t sweet smoked paprika

1 t curry powder

1 scallion, finely chopped



Directions:

-In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumber, carrot and 1 T lemon juice; season with salt.

-In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the tilapia with the paprika, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add to the skillet and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, about 5 minutes.

-Drizzle with the remaining lemon juice. Serve with the cucumber salad and top both with the scallion.


The Way I Made It My Own:
I didn't make the cucumber salad that goes with it. From the reivew that I read, the fish is great alone. They were right. Delish! My kids even loved it! I had no idea they liked curry, and now that I know I will be making this again! I also broiled it in the oven instead of on the stovetop.
