Cream Sauce Galore
I have become very big on adding cream sauces with my pasta and meats! I knew I wanted fish and rice for dinner so I found a cream sauce to add a little something to it instead of eating them plain or typical (butter, lemon, spices, etc.) I used this recipe but see below for ingredients/my preparation for cooking this meal! I added rice on the bottom of the tilapia and added the sauce to the end on top of the fish. Hope you enjoy! I thought it turned out pretty well and it was quick and easy to make!
- 1 1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; sauté the garlic and onion for 1 to 2 minutes. Add cream and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes to reduce slightly. Stir in cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for about 1 minute longer. Set aside or refrigerate until nearly serving time. Heat oven to 375°.
Line a baking pan with foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Brush fillets lightly with butter; arrange in the baking pan. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bake the fish for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the tilapia is cooked through. Warm the sauce up and drizzle a little over each serving of fish.
