rosemary tilapia w/ farro and sauteed spinach

Tilapia is such an easy fish to cook. So easy that I threw this weeknight dish together in about 20 minutes.

After drizzling the fillets with a little olive oil, I sprinkled rosemary and a dash of salt and pepper on the tilapia. I broiled the lean white fish until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side. While the tilapia was cooking, I simmered the farro and sauteed mushrooms and spinach in a little olive oil. In about 20 minutes, I had dinner on the table in front of a hungry husband and ravenous (or so they claimed) kids.

The strong taste of rosemary pairs well with the mild taste of tilapia. And, seriously… no marinating, no complicated recipe, little mess and lots of nutrients. This MyPlate-inspired dish was so easy that you don’t even need a recipe. Just thawed fish, some olive oil and a little rosemary.
