Tuscan Tilapia

My daughter is not a fan of fish
so I am always on the lookout for fish recipes
that she will find bearable to eat.
When I saw this recipe for Tuscan Tilapia
at Kraft Canada I thought it might be something she would like.
It also uses the new Cooking Creme that I have been wanting to try.
Well, let's just say I knew I had a winner
when my daughter went back for seconds,
seconds, can you believe that!?!
That is completely unheard of until now.
This recipe is definately a keeper for me.

1 Tbsp oil
4 tilapia fillets
1 tub Tomato Basil Cooking Creme
1/3 cup milk
2-2/3 cups hot cooked long-grain white rice
2 cups frozen peas

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat.
Add fish; cook 3 minutes on each side or until fish is
browned on both sides and easily flakes with fork.
Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.

Add Cooking Creme and milk to skillet; cook and stir 2 minutes.
Remove 1/2 cup Cooking Creme mixture, set aside.
Add rice and peas to remaining Cooking Creme mixture in skillet;
cook and stir 3 minutes or until heated through.

Spoon rice mixture onto platter; top with fish and reserved sauce.

  1. Very good looking fish method.

  2. I'm so glad you stopped by & left a comment on my blog! This recipe looks wonderful! I look forward to following your blog & Pinterest boards!


  3. This looks delicious and fairly simple way to get dinner on the table!

    1. That's one of my favorite things about cooking fish - it is super quick and easy to make!

  4. Hi Alana,
    I am not big on fish either but my hubby is. I have a tub of cooking creme in the fridge which I must put to use. Thank you for your visit and have a delightful week.


  5. I love tilapia, Alana, because its so mild. Thanks for sharing this.

  6. Thanks for the recipe Alana. I've tried the cooking creme on chicken, but haven't thought to use it on fish. Glad to hear it's just as good. I'll keep that in mind the next time I buy the creme.

  7. I'm going to tell you a secret..okay, it's not a secret, but I don't like fish. I don't like the smell of fish. I don't like the taste of fish. I don't eat fish. I may have been known to gag at the thought of fish. That said, the sauce sounds good. You still won't find me making fish myself, but if EVER I am served fish and it comes with this sauce, I promise I will try it. Maybe just a bite for starters, because I'm really tentative about fish, but I think it sounds like it would make fish bearable to me too. Good work getting your daughter to eat it. You are a miracle worker. You may have saved her from a life of begging off when fish is served. That's no small feat!

    1. This would probably be a good recipe with chicken as well :)

  8. Mmmm. That looks really yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  9. It's a great compliment for a mother when her kids want seconds. Especially when It' something that they don't usually like. It sounds real yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  10. I wouldn't have thought to use that cooking creme on the fish! Sounds really yummy!

  11. Thanks for this recipe,
    I love tilapia because there is plenty of that fish in our area and quite inexpensive too.
    That looks really delish.

  12. Yum! This sounds fabulous! Pinned it :)

  13. Hi Alana,
    Your Tuscan Tilapia looks delicious, I just love that flavor combination. Hope you are having a great week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
