Lemon Pepper Ranch Tilapia on English Muffins

Saturday, March 13, 2010

I came up with this recipe just a few minutes ago. I was looking for something, anything to eat and decided to cook the tilapia that was in the fridge before it went bad.  As I reached into the fridge I saw a pack of english muffins. I thought hmm... maybe I should make something with the english muffins instead... I thought about making one of my favorite breakfast meals (even though it was 9 pm at that moment) I grabbed the English muffin box and noticed that there was something on the bottom of it. 
A Recipe perhaps...
I thought as I turned the box over to read it. I was right, on the bottom of the box was a recipe for Honey mustard chicken muffins. It sounded good and I figured I could just make that. There was only one problem, or should I say a couple problems. 
  1) No Chicken
   2) No  Mustard 
3) No Honey 
So I reopened my fridge to see what I DID have. I still had the fish. I also had ranch, spinach and a couple other veggies, and blueberries. Well I immediately wrote blueberries off the list along with most of the veggies. I decided to use the spinach and ranch some how.  I squirted some ranch in a measuring cup and then went through my spice rack and grabbed some lemon pepper.  I mixed the two together and suddenly my recipe started to come together.

After toasting the english muffins for a couple minutes I put the spinach and cooked fish on top of it. And that is how I came up with the Lemon Pepper Ranch Tilapia... because I didn't have any of the ingredients I needed for the dish I actually wanted to make. 

The only thing left to say is... It was Delicious! 

Heres what you will need:

2 Tilapia Fillets 
1/3 cup Ranch Dressing
2-3 tbs lemon pepper
2-3 English muffins
fresh Spinach
shredded cheese (optional)

Lets get started!

Start by pre-heating the oven to 350
measure 1/3 cup of the ranch dressing and sprinkle the lemon pepper in. Make sure it covers the entire top of the ranch.  Mix

Heat your skillet to Medium heat. 
Place your fish on a plate and spread half the ranch sauce onto the fish.
Place the fish in the skillet with the ranch side down. Spread remaining sauce on other side.

Cook for three minutes on each side. 
Meanwhile cut your english muffins in half.
Place on roasting rack or directly on to oven rack and toast for 2 minutes. 

Chop/flake the fish with your spatula.
When your muffins are done toasting put spinach on them and top with fish.

Top with cheddar cheese if desired.
