We have gone Paleo! Yes, that trendy diet or way of eating that follows what the "cavemen" ate. After a trip to the grocery store and a few hundred dollars later, we began creating recipes that focused on fruits, veggies, lean protein, nuts and seeds, and healthy fats. However, my football playing son still eats carbs since he is expending so much energy. I also include dairy products since I have a Vitamin D deficiency.
I am not a fish eater, but have been converted by this recipe.
4 Tilapia (if frozen make sure they are thawed)
3 Tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
2 Tablespoons Almond meal
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil cooking spray
If you would like to add lime or lemon I'd squeeze over the hot fish right out of the oven.
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking dish with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Mix coconut, almond meal, salt and pepper. Set Tilapia on the pan. Pat each fish fillet with 1/4 of the mixture. Lightly spray with olive oil cooking spray.
Place in oven and bake for 6-10 minutes, depending on how thick the Tilapia is. Coconut will start to turn golden and the fish should look white and fluffy.
Serve with roasted broccoli or other veggie. Some say that quinoa is Paleo, so a side of that is great as well.
