Servings: 4 persons


  • 3 frozen tilapia fillets ($2.50)
  • 1 cup rice ($.50)
  • 2-3 broccoli heads ($1.25) (I used squash in the picture...only $.75...makes this meal under $4!)
  • Lemon juice ($.10)
  • Seafood Seasoning (Dill, Garlic, Lemon) ($.10)


  • Thaw fillets or cook frozen, as directed on package. (I buy the kind that are frozen individually and have no preservatives!)
  • Cook 1 cup rice in 2 1/2 cups water. I usually add a little seasoning and lemon juice as the rice is cooking to get a continuity of flavors in the meal.
  • Steam broccoli 3-5 minutes in microwave or in steamer.
