Today was a quick meal because I was tired and it was storming like crazy so I was lazy. Of course since I was being lazy and in a hurry at the same time, right after I pulled out the first three fillets of fish, the platter that I am putting them on falls the ground and I am left with an interesting dilemma. So I halved the fillets so that I would have enough for each person in the house to have one.
6 x Tilapia fillet
2 x tablespoons of chopped parsley
2 x tablespoons of butter
2 x tablespoons lemon juice
2 x cups of brown rice
2 lbs of broccoli
2 lbs green beans
2 tablespoons of onion powder
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
Bring heat on skillet up… add your vegetable oil and get that to temperature (oil will look kinda wavy)
place lightly salted and peppered Tilapia fillet on skillet, let cook for three to four minutes then flip and let that side cook for three to four minutes as well.
Pour out anything that comes out easily (ie oil and chunks that are stuck)
Add butter and let that melt. Get any stuck particles off your skillet at this point and once the butter is fully melted add the lemon juice.
4 cups water to pot
boil the water
add the rice
reduce heat to simmer
let simmer for 45-50 minutes (Do not touch it during this time)
Put enough water in a pot to fully cover all your broccoli. Bring this water to a boil. Get another pot with enough water to hold your broccoli and add ice to this. Put the broccoli in the boiling water for four to five minutes. I transferred it to the cold water with a slotted spoon, this helps the broccoli stop cooking so that it remains where you wanted it.
I forgot (didn’t know) to cut the tips of the green beans off so my whole family had to eat them carefully.
Add oil to a hot skillet, let it get to temperature. Add green beans and keep it rolling them in the skillet either by shaking and flipping into the air like you see all those fancy chefs do on TV or just use tongs, after a minute or so add the onion powder and garlic salt. Continue to cook this until it reaches the texture you like.
