Tilapia & Creamy Parmesan Risotto

While visiting Whole Foods today, I decided to check out the fresh seafood counter.  Temptation got the best of me and I decided to splurge on four fresh Tilapia filets for tonights dinner.  I served the Tilapia alongside of sauteed spinach and Lundberg Creamy Parmesan Risotto, also purchased at Whole Foods.  I also paired La Crema Chardonnay with the meal.  It was all delicious.

Bake Tilapia at 375 for 20 minutes or until flaky.  Turn halfway through.

  1. Sounds good. Did you just read the article that let us know that Tilapia is better for us than I’d thought it was? Since it is so lean, I wasn’t sure & Bob had read something negative about it so we hadn’t been eating tilapia lately.
