This is another meal that’s on the quick and easy side.
I chose tilapia for my fish because it is affordable and mild. I often buy swai for the same reason. Check it out next time you’re at the store if you haven’t heard of it. It’s only $3.99/lb around me, even for the version stuffed with a lobster and crab mix.
I usually cook my fish bare with some seasoning, but we’ve been eating a lot of fish lately, so it was time for a change-up. Panko is much lighter and crispier than ordinary bread crumbs; it makes a big difference.
I also wanted to do something different with the asparagus I had bought. I ordinarily cook the spears whole on a cast iron grill pan (which is fantastic, by the way).
I served the dish with a chipotle-sriracha mayo.
