Easy Tilapia & Fried Rice

I looove easy recipes, especially when it comes to fish. I found this one for “Easy Baked Parmesan Tilapia” at Tasty Kitchen, paired it with fried rice and threw some steamed veggies on the side. The whole affair took 40 minutes tops. Also, I am happy to report that both of my boys ate the fish and rice! Score one for me.

Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of those dishes I sort of make up on the fly according to how much leftover rice I have and what else I’ve got in the fridge to throw in. You can use as little or as much as you like! Here’s a rough and ready recipe:

Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Add diced onion and celery (or green pepper) and minced garlic. Saute a few minutes. Crack an egg or two into the skillet and scramble. Stir in cooked, crumbled bacon or diced ham. Add another tablespoon or two of olive oil, then stir in cooked, cold rice. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Stir in soy sauce, season with black pepper.
