Welcome to Simple Chef. This is section of the blog is a response to several emails I got today asking me, “What in the world do you eat? …. please can you share”. Yes I will, and here is the first new recipe that I tried fresh out of the oven.
I know that I cooked like a mad woman yesterday but I cannot resist trying something new especially if I already have the ingredients in the fridge. All I had to get from the grocery store was 1 red pepper and 1 lemon. I also use my in-laws as an excuse to cook more things, and trust me they have a big smile on their faces when I drop off my son for baby-sitting along with clean food.
Today’s recipe was found in on my fave “Oxygen Magazine”. It’s a Tilapia baked with red potatoes and it was super easy to make. I took pictures to share with you.
For those of you who do not wish to go look for the recipe, “Simple Chef” is here to make it simple.
Start by cutting 1/2 cup of red pepper and 1/2 of pitted kalamata olives and put it aside
Season your tilapia with Mrs. Dash, paprika, and 1/2 tbsp oil let it seat for 20 minutes
Then 1lb of small red potatoes cut in half, 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil, 1 lemon thinly sliced, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp sea salt mixed together
Bake potatoes first for 20 minutes, add tilapia and bake again for 15 minutes, add peppers and olives, and bake for another 10 minutes and
SIMPLE AND TASTY.
Enjoy and spread the love……
