Asian Spiced Tilapia with Udon for Sea Cuisine

Asian Spice Tilapia

One of things I love about Sea Cuisine frozen fish is that is comes in such a wide variety of flavors. There is everything from Tortilla Crusted Tilapia with firey spices and undertones of lime, to crispy Beer Battered Cod, to this, Asian Spiced Tilapia. This week we were in the mood for Asian cuisine so I selected this fish to serve on a simple bed of udon noodles with a side of spinach. The flavors melded beautifully and we felt like we were eating at a fancy Chinese restaurant instead of in our own kitchen.

As with all of these Sea Cuisine meals, this one came together in under thirty minutes. There is nothing better than that, really, since that is exactly what you want on a busy weeknight. We served it on Friday for our Lent meal and were thrilled with the healthy meal featuring sustainable seafood and organic spinach. It was just what we needed to sit down to after a long, busy week. In fact, we liked it so much I’ve filed this away in my meals in regular rotation. Even though Lent ends next week it doesn’t mean we’ll stop enjoying all these wonderful Sea Cuisine meals!
