Description

An easy, healthy meal with a taste of the Southwest. It’s ready in under 30 minutes and is perfect for a weeknight!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Water
  • ½ cups Uncooked Quinoa
  • 2  Tilapia Fillets
  • 1 pinch Smoked Paprika
  • ⅔ cups Frozen Corn Kernels, Thawed
  • 3 Tablespoons Lime Juice
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Onion Powder
  • ¼ cups Cilantro, Roughly Chopped
  • Salt/pepper To Taste
  • Sriracha For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

1. In a large pot, bring the water to a boil over high heat.
2. Once boiling, stir in the quinoa, cover the pot and reduce the heat to low. Cook until all the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
3. While the quinoa cooks, spray a large saute pan with cooking spray and heat over medium/high.
4. Sprinkle each side of the tilapia fillets with smoked paprika, put them into the hot pan and cook until white and flaky, about 2-3 minutes per side. Cover and set aside until the quinoa is ready.
5.Toss the cooked quinoa with the corn, lime juice, garlic powder, onion powder and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
6. Divide the quinoa between two plates and top with tilapia fillets. Drizzle with Sriracha is desired.
7. Serve immediately
