I thought it was great-- I loved the flavors, but Austin was less than impressed (didn't care for the yogurt flavor). He said he would eat it if I make it again, and I think I will; it was that good in my opinion.
Tilapia Masala with Rice
|1 cup Basmati rice (I used brown Basmati rice)|
|2 tsp table salt|
|1/2 cup cooked green peas|
|3/4 cup ow-fat plain yogurt|
|1 garlic clove(s), Chopped|
|1 tsp ground ginger|
|1 Tbsp fresh lime juice|
|1/4 tsp ground cumin|
|1/4 tsp cayenne pepper|
|4- 4 oz uncooked tilapia fillet(s)|
|1 Tbsp unsalted butter|
|1 Tbsp cilantro|
- Cook rice to directions. When cooked, add peas. Set aside.
- Puree 1/2 cup yogurt, the garlic, ginger, lime juice, cumin, cayenne and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor. Transfer all but 3 tablespoons of the mixture to a large bowl.
- Pierce the fish a few times with a fork and season with salt; add to the bowl and toss. Marinate 15 minutes. Preheat the broiler. Place the fish on a broiler pan; top with the marinade and butter. Broil until opaque, 6 to 8 minutes.
- Mix the remaining 1/4 cup yogurt, the cilantro, and salt to taste with the yogurt mixture. Serve the fish and rice with the yogurt sauce. 8 points a serving.
