Tilapia with Jasmine Rice

This recipe is a hit at our house! And if you have never tried jasmine rice, you should! It has a sweet appealing flavor that we have come to love! I doubled this recipe for our family and it was plenty. The filets I buy at Costco are pretty big so 4 filets was enough for us. We don't usually do leftover fish but Doug did finish the small leftover 1/2 as a fish taco the next day and said it was good! We are also big fans of marinating chicken in Italian salad dressing and grilling it so I knew everything in this recipe would work for us. The best part? Dinner was on the table in no time and without much effort on my part. This is all the bigger the pic would get from tasteofhome.com/healthycooking. :)

3/4 c. water
1/2 c. uncooked jasmine rice
1 1/2 t. butter
1/4 t. ground cumin
1/4 t. seafood seasoning (optional, if you have it in your spice cupboard)
1/4 t. pepper
1/8 t. salt
2 tilapia filets
1/4 c. prepared fat-free Italian salad dressing (this is supposed to be a healthy dish but you don't have to use fat free and we think the packets you mix yourself taste better than buying the dressing already mixed)

1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, rice & butter to a boil. Reduce heat; cover & simmer for 15-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. (you can just prepare jasmine rice according to package)

2. Combine the seasonings; sprinkle over the fillets. Place salad dressing in a large skillet; cook over medium heat until heated through. Add fish; cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with rice.
