Visit From a Little Chef

Now Craftiness isn't really a food blog, but it is a place for me to share my creations. And yesterday I had an inspiration and I made a creation. And it was darn tasty. I call it Tilapia Toast. It's healthy, simple, fast and delicious. Here's how to make it.
 Ingredients : 1 large Tilapia fillet
2 pieces of whole wheat, 12 grain, bread 
Bruchetta ( You can buy it pre-made, or make it yourself) 
1 chopped yellow bell peper (optional)
1 chopped red bell pepper (optional)
Olive Oil
Sliced Portabella Mushrooms (optional)

Put about 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil into a small skillet over medium heat. Let it heat up for 2 minute and then place your Tilapia and mushrooms into the pan. When the Tilapia turns completely white, use your spatula to break it into pieces. Now my bruchetta was pre-made and also had both read and yellow peppers in it. If your bruchetta does not you'll want to add them on your own. Add between 1/4 and 1/2 of bruchetta, to taste. Let the mixture cook for 2-3 minutes or until cooked through. Drain off any excess oil. Put on a little garlic powder the bread and then toast. Then place the mixture on top of each piece. The garnish is simply a couple lemon mint leaves but you could really put anything on there as a garnish. (Chopped chives would look very nice)

You could also make appetizers with this as well. Simply use small bread squares instead of full pieces of bread. Enjoy :)
