To inspire you to somehow be in the mood to get healthy, here’s a recipe that hubby made me cook. It’s a simple tilapia dish that he requested the other day. Tilapia is a good source of protein which in turn is good for the muscles…accordingly there are 27 calories in 1 ounce of tilapia, Calorie breakdown: 16% fat, 0% carbs, 84% protein.
You will need:
2 small tilapia, scaled, gutted and cleaned 1 lemon, sliced
garlic , minced
1. Prepare steamer and make sure the water is starting to boil when you put in the fish.
2 .Clean fish well and make diagonal cuts.
3. Salt fish and coat well. Squeeze with lemon from the slices (you can also put some cooking wine). Put some lemon slices on top of fish.
4. Place fish into steamer and steam for 20 minutes or so.
5. Combine garlic and butter. Serve fish with garlic and butter combo, don’t forget your bowl of rice!
For the conscious you, leave out the butter…
