Hi there internet pals! I’ve got an amazing piece of fish heaped over a pan of deliciously creamy, warm risotto, and it’s ready for you to print the recipe and make it! I think you’ll be surprised when you see how ridiculously easy it is to make.

I’m trying not to totally lose my face over this beautiful rice dinner, but it’s not just the rice. It’s the FISH. It’s that delicious Garlic and Herb Tilapia that I can’t get over.

On one of my very recent 3-hour long clean-the-fridge-out escapades, I came across 3 forgotten scallops, 2 chicken thighs, and 4 pieces of Tilapia. Without much hesitation, I grabbed whatever fresh herbs I had, I also grabbed some garlic, a pan, and was on my merry way to make dinner.

HOW TO MAKE RISOTTO WITH GARLIC HERB TILAPIA

To get started on this one pan risotto deal, I am going to need you to grab some arborio rice + Tilapia fillets.

I will also ask you to chop up an onion, get some fresh rosemary, and throw it all together in a pan with the rice.

Vegetable broth and milk will also join the party before finally seasoning the fish and setting it over the rice.

Only thing left is to cook it in the oven for about 25-ish minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed and fish has browned on top.

    The risotto sounds wonderful, but will use a better fish with it. Tilapia is really a garbage fish with no taste.
