Seafood is always a nice treat. Seafood is somewhat available where I live, but it’s not always fresh or terribly affordable. For that reason I find flash frozen seafood to be both affordable and just as good in quality as fresh. Seafood goes great with oil, that’s what there are so many recipes for seafood with an oil and butter sauce. This tilapia and shrimp also have a very light flavor, so adding chives adds a nice flavor that might get lost if you choose a stronger fish like salmon.This recipe takes only as long as it takes to cook your noodles. The tilapia cooks up very fast and the shrimp, if frozen and pre-cooked, only takes about a minute to cook before you’ll have to start worrying about over cooking. This recipe made 4 Adult sized servings.
