Tilapia with Tomato and Pepper Relish
2lbs of cherry tomatoes, halved
10 cloves garlic, peeled
1lb mixed bell peppers, slices
2 jalapenos, diced
4 T olive oil
4 tilapia filets
Heat oven to 425°F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, gently toss the tomatoes, garlic, peppers and jalapeno with 3 T olive oil, ¾ t salt and ½ t pepper. Roast until the tomatoes begin to break down, 15 to 20 minutes.
With five minutes remaining, heat the remaining tbsp oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season the tilapia with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Toss the vegetables with the cilantro and serve over the seared fish.
Parmesan Roasted Asparagus
2 lbs of asparagus
2 T olive oil
1/4 shaved parmesan
juice of 2-3 lemons
salt and pepper to taste
Trim the bottom inch off the asparagus stalks. Lay them out on a parchment sheet lined baking sheet. Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and juice lemons on top. Roast for 15-20 until the asparagus is crisp tender.
