Lemon Tilapia & Sun-Dried Tomato Sandwich

What a delicious protein packed sandwich this was.  I loved every bite.  It is also a quick and easy recipe, it only takes about 20 minutes start to finish.  You can use frozen fish too since it’s more convenient and you’ll be mixing it with a ton of flavor.  I will say that this is one time that I feel like the fresh herbs were really key to the flavor.  I wouldn’t recommend subbing dry herbs here.  I hope you like this one, I’m really excited about it!

Lemon Tilapia & Sun-Dried Tomato Sandwich– adapted from Giada Di Laurentiis

Makes: 2 sandwiches

5 oz tilapia (feel free to sub for another white fish of your choice)

5 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained, rinsed & chopped

4 tbsp. Lemon flavored Greek Yogurt 0% fat (I used Oiko’s)

1 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped

1 tsp. fresh parsley , chopped

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil (for bread & fish)

Handful of mixed greens

3 oz. ciabatta bread

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Sprinkle tilapia with salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.  Bake for 10-11 minutes or until flaky.  Remove from oven and allow fish to cool completely.
  3. In the meantime, mix together the sun-dried tomatoes, greek yogurt, basil and parsley in a small bowl.  Set aside.
  4. Cut ciabatta bread in half, lengthwise and scoop some of the bread out of the top half.  Drizzle both cut sides with olive oil and bake in the 400 F oven for about 6 minutes until lightly browned and crispy.  Remove bread from oven and sprinkle bottom half with garlic powder.
  5. Once tilapia is cooled, mix into the sun-dried tomato/yogurt mixture.
  6. Scoop mixture onto the bottom of the bread and top with a handful of mixed greens and the top of your sandwich.
  7. Serve with a side salad of your choice
