Clearin’. It. Out.

We enjoyed this tilapia (on sale for $1.99/lb [3]!) with Brussels sprouts from the freezer, and rolls from the freezer.

Breaded Tilapia with Sauteed Zucchini and Tomatoes

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 13 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 tilapia fillets, about 1.1lbs ($2.12)
  • 1 egg whisked ($.10)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs ($.25)
  • 1 zucchini, diced ($.59)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved ($1.99)
  • 1 12 oz bag frozen Brussels sprouts ($.80)
  • Sister Schubert’s frozen rolls ($.75)
  • Butter and jelly ($.25)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Thaw the tilapia fillets if necessary.
  • Dip the tilapia in the whisked egg, then dust with the bread crumbs.
  • Bake for 7 minutes, then flip and bake for another 6 minutes, or until the tilapia has cooked through.
  • In a skillet, saute the diced zucchini and halved grape tomatoes with some salt and pepper.  Saute over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the tomatoes have popped and wilted and the zucchini has turned opaque in color.
  • Prepare the Brussels sprouts and bread as directed.
  • Serve Breaded Tilapia with Zucchini and Tomatoes on top, along with Brussels sprouts and Bread.

Cost $6.85

(This would have been well under $5 if I’d waited and used tomatoes from my garden!)
