Baked Paprika Tilapia – Healthy

My recent favorite way of cooking fish…

Glad that Thursday is here, can’t really wait for the weekend. After the run, as soon as I got home I started sneezing and was down with cold, don’t ask me about the sore body. No pain no gain, right? Well, all the pain and sickness vanished when I saw my picture on the front page of the newspaper on Monday 🙂 Here is the link 🙂

I am feeling much better today, tylenol worked really well on me. Also, the weather is turning warmer which is a big relief. I am gearing up to build a new garden from scratch again as I moved to a new house. I love my new backyard, it’s spacious and beautiful. Last weekend, I bought the first plant of this season, Gerbera and today one of my co-workers gave me a few lilies. Flowers and plants and greenness make me happy.

Lately, I am into baking fish. Only thing I’ve to do is just marinate the fish and pop it in the oven. After turning on the timer I can just walk away and not care about the fish. After around 20-25 minutes, it will be ready to enjoy. I usually serve this baked fish with roasted or baked veggies, salad and sometimes along with a scoop of rice. This is without a doubt a healthy dish and great for weight watchers.
