TILAPIA OVER SPINACH, MADUROS and AVOCADO with BALSAMIC VINEGAR, SEA SALT and FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER!
Simple, yet fulfilling and delicious. Tilapia is a white flaky fish that has become very popular. (Always buy your seafood from reputable markets such as Wegmans, Publix, Costco, Traders Joe’s, your fish monger and the such, with the appropriate certifications and with no additives, preservatives or seasonings.)
It will take you no time at all to make my recipe. Specially, when you come home from work and have a number of family members to feed in a hurry. I am also using pre-cooked Goya Maduro/Plantains that can be microwavable for few minutes to save you time. If you want, make a salad and you are good to go in less than 30, how’s that?
