Tilapia with Green Beans

I decided to try a different recipe for Tilapia, so I looked on the site and found the Tilapia with Green Beans recipe and I thought I would give it a try.  I already had everything at the house, so it would be a quick meal.

I thawed four Tilapia filets and prepared the flour, oregano and parsley mixture.  I used dried oregano and parsley for the seasoning.  I only used about two-teaspoons of the oregano as dried spices are stronger than fresh, I used a tablespoon of the dried parsley.

I heated our large stainless steel pan and added two tablespoons of butter.  Once the butter melted, I dredged two of the tilapia filets in the flour mixture then placed them in the pan to cook.  After four minutes, I turned the filets over and let them cook for another four minutes.  Meanwhile, I dredged the other two filets and got out the ingredients for the green beans.

Once the fish reached their cooking time, I removed them from the pan and checked one of the filets and it was fully cooked.  I put the cooked fish on a plate and put them in the oven to keep warm while I repeated the cooking process with the other two filets.

When all the fish were cooked and in the oven, I added the additional tablespoon of butter to the pan and then about 1/2 pound of green beans to cook for two minutes.  I added some salt and pepper then two sliced tomatoes and cooked for about a minute.  I added about 1/4-cup of lemon concentrate and 1/4-cup of water and covered the pan and let everything cook until the beans were tender.

We ate the tilapia, brown rice, and green beans with tomato.  I enjoyed the meal, but the tilapia could have used a lot less of the oregano and more salt and pepper.  The fish came out very dark for the oregano.  I think that about 1/2-teaspoon would be the correct amount for dried oregano.  I thought the beans were good, but the only distinct flavor was the lemon juice.

This will not be a recipe that I make again especially as it calls for frying the fish, we both would rather have broiled tilapia or the tilapia rollups.
