I know some of you have been waiting for the recipe. So without further a do, here it is as promised. 🙂
Prepare the ingredients.
- 2-3 Tilapia fillets, seasoned with salt and pepper
- 1 cup cocktail shrimps
- mini bell peppers
- 1 can (8 oz.) pineapple tidbits
- 1/2 cup of orange pineapple juice
- sweet chili sauce
- orange zest of 1 orange
- 2-3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Roast the bell peppers by placing them on the burner stove with low heat. You will hear a cracking sound while roasting. Don’t panic. It’s just the peppers’ skin popping. I roasted the peppers only until they are somewhat soft. Place them on a platter. Set aside.
Coat a heated skillet with olive oil and add the seasoned tilapia. Cover and cook until brown. Turn over to the other side and cook until brown. Remove from the pan and put them on the plate with the roasted bell peppers.
Cook the sauce. On the same skillet, add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter. Add the shrimp and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add in the flour and stir until a paste is formed. Using a whisk, add the pineapple orange juice and whisk constantly until you create a smooth roux. Add the orange zest and sweet chili sauce and pineapple tidbits. Season with salt and pepper to your taste. Remove from heat and pour over the cooked Tilapia fillets.
Serve warm with your favorite starch. Bon Appetit! 🙂
