Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 3 packages of Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia
  • about 2 cups basmati rice, cooked
  • a bunch of asparagus, steamed and lightly salted
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • a few slices of lemon
  • ¾ cup vegetable broth
  • ½ pint light cream
  • ¼ cup freshly snipped chives, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Steam the asparagus for about 8 minutes, lightly salted and set aside.
  3. Cook the basmati rice according to the package. Set aside.
  4. Remove the tilapia from the vacuum sealed packaging and place each piece into a parchment pocket. Fold all sides in to seal in the steam. Place on a baking sheet and cook for approx 18 minutes.
  5. While the tilapia is cooking we can make the sauce. In a medium saucepan, over medium low heat, add in the butter, olive oil, shallot, garlic and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the garlic and shallots are softened.
  6. Add in the lemon slices, fresh lemon juice and vegetable broth. Simmer on low for about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove the fish from the oven and open the parchment carefully! Steam is HOT!
  8. To the sauce, just before serving, add in the light cream and half the chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer just until the cream is warmed.
  9. Plate the rice, steamed asparagus and the tilapia. Pour the sauce overtop and garnish with the remaining half of the chives.
