Baked Parmesan tilapia with corn-quinoa salad

I haven’t been cooking much recently. Life has been busy and when I do cook I haven’t been taking pictures. I finally started back again…I have missed my kitchen.   I made a Parmesan chicken once with Greek yogurt and Parmesan cheese. So I decided to try it with fish…

I just combined Greek yogurt, Parmesan cheese, and about 1/4 tsp of minced garlic. Then, I spread it over 2 tilapia filets  with a lemon slice on top, of course.

In the meantime, I created a corn, apple, quinoa, spinach salad 🙂

First, onions + 1/4 garlic clove sauteed in a small sauce pan. Add apples.



Once they are softened. Add 1/2 cup of broth (I used vegetable broth, you could use chicken I suppose). When it starts boiling, add quinoa.



In a separate skillet, fry up some corn w/ chili powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic.



After the quinoa has cooked (about 15 minutes), combine all ingredients into the sauce pan.



Cook down some spinach and add it into the mix!






Yum and healthy.

The fish should be done after about 20 minutes at 375′. If you like it well done, maybe a few more minutes.
