Grilled Tilapia with Smoked Paprika and Parmesan Polenta

From MyRecipes


Polenta:

4 cups fat-free milk
1 cup quick-cooking polenta
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) grated parmesan cheese

Fish:

1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
Cooking spray

To prepare polenta, bring milk to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually add polenta, stirring constantly with a whisk. Reduce heat, and cook 5 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly; stir in 1/4 tsp salt. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese; cover and keep warm.

To prepare fish, heat a large nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine oil, paprika, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper in a bowl, stirring well. Rub fish evenly with oil mixture. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Made this last night and we loved it.  What a great mix of spices on the fish and polenta is always good.  Hubby insisted on adding a dollop of low fat sour cream to the polenta after it was cooked.

margypops,

Polenta is usually served as a side dish to replace rice, pasta, or potatoes. I've never used it as a dessert, but that's not to say you can't.
