Break the take-away habit with this fast food

Probably the only thing faster than this recipe

Looking for something for supper that is fast, easy, and healthy?  This recipe is the sure-cure for expanding waistlines that result from bringing home take-away food on evenings you “don’t feel like cooking”.

Prep time is less than ten minutes and cooking the basmati-wild rice accompaniment takes longer than the whole time from prep to service.

My version uses “Iowa Country Sweat & Tears” mustard from the Denison Mustard Co., but any Dijon-style mustard would be an excellent substitute if you do not have access to DMC’s excellent mustard.

No sense in letting the telling take longer than the making!

4-6 talapia or flounder fillets

2 TBS Panko (or fine bread crumbs)

1 TBS Dijon mustard

1 TBS honey

salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425F.  Fish may be cooked from frozen if the fillets are thin.  Place the fillets on a lightly oiled baking sheet.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with Panko or very fine breadcrumbs.  Whisk together the mustard, honey, and one tablespoon of water.  Drizzle the honey-mustard mixture over the fish.  Bake for 8-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Serves well with wild and Basmati rice and alongside a garden salad.  It is so good you will not realize it is a healthy meal.
