RECIPE: Tilapia fish with Garlic and Basil (nightshade free)


This is a super easy recipe and was my first attempt at combining my own choice of spices together.  In the past, I would buy those pre-mixed spice combinations.  But, alas, I can no longer eat those becaue they always contain something I can’t have now.  So, here’s what I came up with:

Tilapia fish fillets (however many you need to make for everyone)
Some oil that you can tolerate (I use a light olive oil)
Garlic Salt

- Brush some oil on the top and bottom of the fish.
- Sprinkle some garlic salt on the top.
- Sprinkle some basil on the top.
- Cook them.  I use a George Foreman grill, so I set it to 4 minutes and take them off when the buzzer goes off.  If you cook them in a pan, probably 4 to 6 minutes per side should do it.  Here’s what it looks like cooked (I really need a camera, my phone camera kind of sucks – sorry about that):

It turned out really tasty – especially considering that I just grabbed two spices and threw them together.
