Tilapia Rosso

This is just a SUPER simple red sauce preparation with Italian spices, lots of garlic, and a few shiitake mushrooms for fun. I added an egg  for a little extra protein boost. Sorry the pictures aren’t the best, it was a little sloppy on the plate, but it tasted great which is all that matters when it comes to busy middle of the week dinners!

Ingredients:

  • 5-7 cloves garlic
  • 2 shallots
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1-2 lbs Tilapia (2 large filets)
  • About 14 oz strained Tomato
  • Basil, oregano, allspice, thyme, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika
  • 4-5 shiitake mushrooms, halved

Prep:

  1. Chop up your shallots, mushrooms, and garlic.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a pan over med or med-high heat and add the garlic and shallots, cover and stir or shake occasionally
  3. Pat the tilapia with a paper towel, and place in a Ziploc bag with the coconut flour, tumble to coat
  4. Beat an egg and dip the fish filets in
  5. Place the filets in the pan and pour in any remaining egg and cover
  6. Add the tomato, and seasoning, going nice and heavy on the basil and oregano. Stir gently.
  7. Towards the end, once the fish is mostly cooked, add the mushrooms. Cover and cook for a couple of min until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
