I posted this picture on my instagram and was asked if I could share the recipe to this simple dish! I was inspired by this recipe from allrecipes.com however I made a few changes to make it healthier and accommodate what I had in the fridge already! So here it is- my Cajun Tilapia Recipe!
What you need:
Four Pieces of Boneless Tilapia
Butter or Olive oil for cooking
1/4 cup Paprika
1 tbsp lemon pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
a pinch of lawry's seasoning salt
1/2 Cup Fresh Spinach
1/2 Cup Sliced Fresh Mushrooms
1 tsp Fresh Garlic
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 Can of Cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup of evaporated milk
1 dallop of light cream cheese
Water or stock to be used as a thinner, as needed
Optional: Shrimp or Sausage
2. In one skillet, add mushrooms, garlic, onion and spinach and cook on medium heat until onions are translucent.
5. In your veggie skillet, reduce heat and add cream of mushroom, evaporated milk and cream cheese and remaining cajun seasoning. Stir consistently until mixture becomes creamy.
7. Add shrimp or sausage (I used turkey sausage) to your reduction and allow to simmer until meat is cooked. Continue to stir.
To serve. Place tilapia on serving dish and drizzle reduction on top of the fish. Suggested sides are cajun rice, red beans and rice, or mashed potatoes with green beans or asparagus.
