I hope everyone is having a nice day today! We are getting a huge snow storm coming our way which has already started, so to spice things up, I’ve made a healthy and light easy lunch full of flavour and a little bit of heat?
1lb Tilapia fillet
3 pieces smoked turkey sausage
Vermicelli brown rice noodles
1/2 cup chopped red onions and red peppers and grape tomatoes
1 small chopped jalapeño
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar (sulphite free)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp virgin olive oil
Chopped cilantro leaves (for topping)
Set oven to broil (525°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Season tilapia with balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil. Slice tilapia into cubes and place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Place a skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Sauté onions, peppers, tomatoes and turkey sausage for about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and set aside when ready.
For the noodles, place 1 portion in a large bowl and pour 5-6 cups of water over it until whittled. Pour noodles into a strainer until the water is strained, then place in the skillet and toss with the cooked ingredients. Top with broiled tilapia and fresh cilantro. Serve when ready.
