​Meal Prep Monday: Tilapia and Quinoa

So Mariano’s had this special where they take the fish fillet of your choice, they season it, and place it in an oven-ready bag for you to bake at home.  This week, they had a special on tilapia filets, so I ordered some.  They placed the filet in the oven-safe bag and added a pat of butter, parsley, lemon and rosemary garlic seasoning (there are five different seasonings to choose from).  The baking instructions are also on the bag.  My total for one package: $3.92 (awesome!)

At home, I followed the directions on my bag and heated up my oven to 375F.  I placed the bag with my fish and seasonings on a baking pan that I lined with foil (in
case any juices run out for easy clean-up).  The package suggested that I use a fork to make some steam holes in the bag, so I did that also. When the oven was ready, I placed everything in it and baked it for 18-20 minutes.

 

When it is done, I used scissors to cut it open (be careful not to burn yourself with either the package or the steam).   It just looked and smelled so yummy!

I paired it with tri-colored quinoa mixed with spinach and some sweet potato.  The quinoa I had cooked according to package directions and mixed in the spinach at the end.  The
potato I had steamed separately.

I hope that you find this as simple, quick and delicious as I had!
