Spicy Mushroom & Tomato Tilapia

Oh my goodness... my lunch today was so delicious!

I knew I wanted to have Tilapia but I didn't know how to season it.  I had a ton of fresh mushrooms & cherry tomatoes and I just stood there looking at my ingredients until it finally hit me.

Does that happen to any of you?  You're hungry, you know what you want to use but you don't know the exact way you want to put it together?  My husband is always coming in the kitchen to ask me what I'm doing and usually I'm just standing there in deep thought, lol!

Well, today my friends it paid off.  This dish was out of this world!

Spicy Mushroom & Tomato Tilapia Ingredients
2 Tilapia Loins (cooked weight should total 7oz)
1 cup fresh spinach (30 grams)
1/2 cup portabella mushrooms (43 grams), chopped
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes (74.5 grams), chopped
1 tablespoon Smart Ballance Light Butter w/Flaxseed Oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/16 - 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (depending on how spicy  you want it)

Cook your Tilapia loins on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray per package directions.  

Meanwhile, add your chopped mushroom & tomatoes (make sure to dump in any liquid that is on the plate after chopping your tomatoes) to a small saute pan lightly coated with cooking spray and cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.  

Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in your salt, ground red pepper & smart ballance light butter.  Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.  Make sure not to overcook or mixture will dry out.  

Place your spinach on a plate and top with Tilapia loins.  Spoon your spicy mushroom & tomato mixture over the top of the Tilapia.  

Serve immediately and enjoy! 

Lean & Green Meal:  1 healthy fat, 3 servings vegetables, 1 condiments, 7oz lean meat 
(You'll need to add 1 additional Healthy Fat to you're day since this only equals 1 in this meal)
