The Most Delicious Springtime Stuffed Tilapia Recipe

tilapia-recipes-flavory-blog.jpg

It's springtime and the stores are full of great deals on fresh asparagus.  Asparagus is not only delicious but good for your body.  It's a wonderful high alkaline nutrient dense vegetable that's low carb- keto friendly and of course gluten-free making it a great food for almost everyone.

When I was growing up my Grandma Bohman grew a patch of asparagus just outside her garden gate.  It's a tall wispy plant with little green berries on it when it goes to seed.  I use to love running my hands through it as I walked by.

I love fish and tilapia is a beautiful mild white fish that pairs well with some many flavors.  I love finding new tilapia recipes.  For this recipe, I put together some colorful and flavory veggies that are easy to find this time of year at the market.  I topped it with a lemon garlic sour cream sauce.

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Gather your ingredients then slice your sweet peppers in thin slices. Snap off the ends of your asparagus and peel your cloves of garlic. For my tilapia, I get this fresh frozen tilapia fillets that are individually wrapped.

Layer a few pieces of asparagus, a few sticks of sweet peppers, a piece of artichoke heart and one clove of fresh garlic. Top with red pepper flakes and pink salt.

Roll the two ends of the fish together overlapping slightly and hold together with your bamboo skewers. If they are too long just snip off the end.

Drizzle a little avocado oil in the bottom of your pan then lay tilapia fillets in pan and drizzle a nice amount of avocado oil over the top. Top each piece of tilapia with a lemon slice. Bake in a 375 degrees oven for about 20 minutes until fully cooked.

Hot Dog Toppings Bar For Dinner or a Party

This post is sponsored by Hebrew Nationalยฎ

Are you planning a springtime BBQ celebration get-together? I have the best quick but still delicious and quality grilled dinner idea for you, your friends and your family. It's a Hot Dog Toppings dinner party. It is seriously the easiest to plan and make. It's also a HUGE crowd pleaser. The kids, as well as the adults, will love it.

I put together a list of premium toppings I thought would cover everyone's tastes to go with Hebrew Nationalยฎ All-Beef Franks. One of the things I love about Hebrew Nationalยฎ All-Beef Franks is that the hot dogs are good premium cuts of 100% kosher beef. Quality is always something I look for when planning dinner.

For our Hot Dog Bar, I added fresh ingredients. I made sure to chop the pieces smaller than I usually do so they could fit nicely on the bun. I bought freshly made buns from a local bakery and chose some tasty toppings, including onions, avocado, tomato, peppers, sauerkraut, a spicy green sprout mix, a variety of mustards and, of course, some ketchup. You can pretty much add any that you love. Think of your favorite salad-bar toppings if you are looking for some inspiration. With the kids, you can tell them to choose three toppings so they are sure to get some veggies in their meal. My family loves it and it's definitely on our list of things to make when friends come over. Happy spring!

LOW CARB KETO FRIENDLY RECIPE

ground-beef-recipes-keto-tacos

Taco on a low carb keto diet? You bet! I wouldn't go with out some good Mexican flavory keto tacos in my life.

๐ŸŽต"If you like Cinco de Mayo, so you  c'n eat tacos all day. If you're not into carbs, and you have half a brain. If you like taking walks at midnight ..." ๐ŸŽต I know, in another life I was weird al with food lyrics haha.

There is no way I'm missing Taco Tuesdays just because I'm on a low carb keto diet. I love Mexican foods and flavors. Any taco can easily be converted to a low carb - keto taco by replacing the taco shell with your favorite lettuce. I used romaine hearts but a butter lettuce taco shell would be really good too.

Do you make tacos for Taco Tuesday? These turned out so good. You're going to love them and so will your family.
