When I originally went in search of “poached tilapia”, I was looking for the definition. However, I ran across dozens of recipes for it instead, and they were all much more involved than mine. Mine was sitting on the stove, already finished & waiting to be devoured by my family. So that’s why I named this SUPER EASY Poached Tilapia, because seriously, how much easier can you get than this?
I’ve written before about one particular ingredient that I keep in my pantry. I’m sure there may be other more expensive, more “gourmet” options, but if I find something I like, I tend to stick with it.
Such is the case with the Goya Salad & Vegetable Seasoning . I've used it for years now, but I'd never tried it on meat. After all, it DOES say salad & vegetable! But I decided to be a rebel.
Here’s all you need:
1 c. water
1 packet Goya Salad & Vegetable Seasoning
You choice of fish – preferably thin fillets
In a skillet, dissolve 1 packet of the Goya Salad & Vegetable Seasoning in the 1 cup of water. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat to medium.
Place fish filets in a single layer in the pan and cook until the fish are flaky with a fork. Seriously – that’s IT. 10 minutes, your dinner is ready!!!
I’d taken photos of the recipe, but honestly – they just show fish in a pan. LOL
Don’t boil the fish – just cook it slowly. Serve with a salad and some kind of yummy vegetable and call it a night!
