Butter-Broiled Tilapia

Butter-Broiled Tilapia

The first time I tried this recipe, I paired it with brown rice and made steamed green beans on the side. Delicious!

This new recipe, which I tried in August 2017, is from the Publix Aprons series. I picked it up along with the tilapia I purchased to try it, and my first two tries were a smashing success. I’m putting it here just in case Publix ever removes it from their web site.

  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 lb. tilapia filets
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley (optional)

Set oven to broil and pre-heat. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine butter, salt and seasonings in a small bowl.

Arrange fish on baking sheet and top with seasoned butter. Broil 5-6 minutes until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from oven and, if desired, sprinkle with parsley. Makes about 4 servings.

Day Zero Reboot: Week 11

Despite missing an update last week, it’s been a good couple of weeks. There was, after all, a very good reason I missed last week’s update: I was at DragonCon! In fact, I was even in the parade: I walked with the Parade of Elements, and I had so much fun coming up with the outfit — I won’t say costume, because it really didn’t qualify as one — that I’ve already signed up to do it again next year.

As much fun as Labor Day weekend always is, it requires recovery, and I’ve spent the last week focusing on that. My primary goal was to get the routine re-established, and I’m proud to say I’ve accomplished that. Now that I have, the next goal is to get back to working on this list!

Day Zero Reboot: Week 9

So much for working on getting my focus back! Here I am, four weeks later, having missed three weekly update posts in the meantime. While I’m not going to let myself indulge in any excuses this time, I am going to find a little humor in it: there’s a comment in here about the best-laid plans of mice and men, isn’t there?

Regardless, it really is time to work on getting my focus back. In a way, I actually have been doing so over the last week, as I’ve been making a very serious effort to improve my sleep hygiene, which had started slipping pretty badly. It took a few days for the effects to start showing up, but by the end of the week I was feeling much more rested and alert, and my overall productivity started increasing. Interestingly enough, my appetite started decreasing.
