crispy fish with tomato and leek sauté


I’m using a RealSimple recipe, yet again. I swear I’m they’re not paying me to sing their praises, but their site is truly awesome for really easy and delicious meals (they also have beaucoup tips for makeup, hair, housekeeping, etc. etc.).  Tonight I’m making fish with tomatoes and leeks, and this is how I’m going to do it:

Ingredients (I’ve replaced their suggested ingredients with what I had on hand)
1 slice of bread, torn into peaces
1/4 tsp. dried rosemary, chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 tilapia fillets
1 tbsp. brown mustard
2 leeks, halved and then sliced
2 cloves garlic
1 pint grape tomatoes
salt and pepper

1. In a food processor,  pulse the bread, rosemary and 1 tbsp. of olive oil until you create crumbs.
2. Place the fish on a baking sheet and spread the mustard on top. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 – 15 minutes until fish is white/opaque.
3. Meanwhile,  heat the other tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add the leeks, garlic and half cup of water. Cook until tender, and liquid has almost evaporated, 4 – 5 minutes.
4. Stir in the tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1/4 tsp. of pepper.  Serve with the fish.

I steamed up some corn on the cob and poured a little melted butter with some garlic powder over-top to serve next to the fish and leeks.

Daaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnn this was good! And it was ridiculously easy to make, with minimal clean-up. Always my favorite kind of meal.
