Summer Lunch - Tilapia Fillets with Lemongrass Seasoning

Our friend Mutsuko recently came to visit from Thailand and brought this nice seasoning. If you don't intend to get a bottle of this in Thailand, then you might as well just mix it yourself. The ingredients are easy to find: coarse seasalt, turmeric, lemongrass and red chilli. Together with a green salad on a white vinegar dressing (or apple cider), this makes for a nice and light summer lunch.



for 2 people:

Ingredients:

4 Tilapia Fillets (costs about 6 bucks at Trader Joe's, cheap!)
2-3 tablespoons lemongrass seasoning mix (enough to rub it all around the fish)
1 tablespoon butter
fresh (preferrably organic) green salad leaves


Instructions:

Wash the fish pieces, dry them with kitchen paper and season all around with the lemongrass mix (coarse seasalt, turmeric, lemongrass, red chilli).

Prepare the salad. I would suggest using just a bit of white vinegar (or an apple cider) and olive oil to complement the lemongrass seasoning.

Heat the butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the fish for about 2 minutes on each side over medium-high heat until golden. Serve immediately with the salad on the side.

Oh man! That looks absolutely delicious! I bet a ginger vinegrette or a mushroom & sesame vinegrette would taste pretty good with that too!
