Cool Caribbean Tilapia

CoolTilapia(or, as Middle Dumpling likes to call it, “Fishy Colada”)

3 tilapia fillets
Salt & pepper to taste
1 can coconut milk
1/4 c chopped cilantro, divided
1/4 c lime juice, divided

Salt and pepper fish and place in a microwaveable dish. Pour coconut milk over all. Sprinkle with half of the cilantro and half of the lime juice. Microwave, covered, on high for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Let rest five minutes before serving. Drain and sprinkle fish with remaining cilantro and lime juice.

If you couldn’t guess from the comment by my middle child, I totally let the kids help with this.  Small hands can even use a pair of small kitchen scissors to snip up the cilantro.  Children of any age can shake salt and pepper, and who doesn’t love to smack around some citrus fruit, then squeeze it into a measuring cup?
