Steamed lemon dill tilapia and watercress salad

Steamed lemon dill tilapia and watercress salad

2 3oz tilapia fillets
A tsp of fresh lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp fresh dill
2 large romaine lettuce

Bamboo basket steamer  *Note
1 1/2 c water for steaming


2 1/2 c watercress washed
1 beefsteak tomato washed & sliced
1 organic cucumber washed & sliced w/ peel
3 radish sliced washed & sliced
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Steamed 1 c broccoli florets , cauliflower and carrots combined


Marinate fillets in a medium bowl and set aside.

I used my bamboo steamer over 1 1/2 of water brought to boil on high heat. Layed the romaine lettuce on the bottom of the basketand the marinated fillets on top. Covered the baskets and steamed the fillets for about 7-10 minutes. 

Carefully remove from basket when done. Plate and serve. 

Combine salad in medium bowl and serve with your fillet and steamed veggies. 


Bon Apetit! 

* Note - see recipe for "tamales". You can see what a bamboo basket steamer looks like. You may use other methods if you prefer.
