Tantalizing Tilapia

By Posted on

Brimming with flavor, this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Tilapia with Curry and Orange Rice hits the high notes for being delicious and cancer-preventive.

Tilapia is a low-calorie, inexpensive and delicate white fish with a mild taste. To dress it up a bit, we bake it with curry powder, a spice containing yellow turmeric found in studies to help prevent inflammation, plus sweet fresh orange slices that are rich in vitamin C.

Meanwhile, the high-fiber brown rice is cooked with orange juice then mixed with scallions and crunchy toasted almonds. This yummy fish dish only needs a vegetable or two, like steamed broccoli and carrots, to give you plenty of cancer protection.

    1. This was good. It’s the kind of easy homecooked meal that is every bit as flavorful as a restaurant meal. And way cheaper! I used to be one of those who “didn’t know how to cook fish at home” but not any more! LOVE the way y’all have us trying new spice/flavor combinations that I wouldn’t think of on my own.
