Foil Packet Tilapia and Corn Relish

I’m not sure why the only time I eat fish is when I’m on Weight Watchers. Or when I’m eating it fried. Or during Lent.

It’s like I forget that I love fish. Add to that it’s inexpensive and so easy to make I’m not sure why I don’t have it every week.

Well I’ve had it a lot recently and let me tell you, I love seafood! You can easily make it in a foil pack and have a simple one dish meal with practically zero cleanup. Not to mention, it is  a Weight Watchers friendly recipe.

With so many wonderful vegetables in season, you can also add almost whatever vegetables you want to the foil pack and it will taste amazing. Try this method with your favorite fish and vegetables. The tilapia was so smooth and every bite with the mayonnaise spread was unbelievably good.  The relish was spicy but the perfect complement to the fish.

Foil Packet Tilapia and Corn Relish

Foil Packet Tilapia and Corn Relish (recipe adapted from Rachael Ray)

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp reduced calorie mayonnaise
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 corn on the cob, kernels cut off the cob
1 Tbsp tomato, finely diced
1 Tbsp green bell pepper, finely diced
1/4 tsp seasoning salt
2 Tilapia fillets, 4 oz each
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Foil
Pam cooking spray

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and smoked paprika. Mix until combined.

In another small bowl, add corn, tomatoes and green pepper. Sprinkle with seasoning salt.

Layer two pieces of foil on top of each other (enough for the fish and to fold it up). Spray with Pam spray. Spread a small smear of the mayonnaise mixture on the foil.

Season tilapia with salt and pepper. Place fish on the mayonnaise on the foil. Add half the mayonnaise mixture on top of the tilapia fillet. Place half the corn relish on top of the fish. Fold the foil over lengthwise then roll up both ends to form a packet.

Repeat with remaining fillet, mayonnaise mixture and corn relish. Place foil packets on a cookie sheet and place in the oven.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Nutella and Strawberry Crepes #ReadingFoodie: Gone Girl

Have you read Gone Girl yet? If not, why haven’t you?! Somehow this summer I started reading books that were coming out in movie form this year. It started with The Fault in Our Stars. I can’t even talk about that book or I will start crying. So emotional yet such a good read.

Anyway, back to Gone Girl. It’s been out for a while and I even saw the previews for the movie and thought, nah I won’t read that or go see that movie. But then I kept seeing people talking about it online.

So, of course another road trip was happening so I downloaded the audible version of the book. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect but then as I kept listening I wanted to google at my next pit stop to find out exactly what was going to happen next. There were so many twists interspersed in the book that it kept you guessing as to what was going on.

The book is written by Gillian Flynn and is about Amy and Nick Dunne. This young couple is celebrating their fifth anniversary when Amy goes missing. Naturally Nick is a suspect and things happen throughout the book that make you question how innocent or guilty Nick actually is. There are secondary characters that contribute to the book and really make you question everything that is said and done. A definite thriller.

When I got to Part Two, my mouth literally dropped. Like I was searching for my phone to tweet out that my mouth dropped with this book. That’s how into it I was. But, of course, I was driving so I had to wait until I stopped for gas.

The audible version is 19 hours. Nineteen! My round trip was only twelve hours so by the time I got home, I couldn’t wait to finish it and ended up buying the kindle version and finishing the book.

My coworkers had to hear about how great this book was and both have since read it. We all can’t wait for the movie to come out as it looks like it will be a great one. I don’t want to say anything to give away the shockers in the book so I will just say – ORDER THIS BOOK!

Now for the recipe. It’s rather simple and came about because on the morning of their anniversary, Amy made Nick some crepes. I mean seriously. How sweet is that? What a wonderful wife, right?

My version is a Weight Watchers friendly version and oh so good. If I had a husband, I’d make these for him too. But that’s about all I’d take from Amy Dunne’s Guide to Marriage. Enjoy!

Skillet Fried Okra and Potatoes

Growing up my mom used to make skillet potatoes all the time. When she would add okra to them, oh it was such a treat. Some people get turned off of okra because of the slimy factor. And I admit, it can be a bit slimy, but with this dish you don’t get that feeling. […]
