This super easy Skillet Tilapia with Shrimp is a quick weeknight dinner that tastes just like an Olive Garden knock-off!
A few weeks ago I went to the classic Italian Restaurant that is know for it’s never ending salad and breadsticks… Olive Garden.
I’m all about free carbs.
Anyways, I ordered myself something light to go with my 99 breadsticks. I ordered their baked Tilapia with Shrimp. It was most enjoyable to the palate, but I couldn’t help but thinking how easy it would be for me to make this in my own kitchen.
For a quarter of the price.
Let’s be real guys. I have 4 kids with bottomless pits for stomachs.
I can’t afford to take my kids out to eat very often. So when I found 6 very large Tilapia filets for just $4 at my local grocery store… yeah… that sure beats paying $16 for one.
I also picked up a 1 lb. bag of frozen shrimp for just $5. This meal was shaping up real well.
I took all my ingredients home and whipped up this delicious meal in less than 20 minutes.
I fed my whole family, a restaurant worthy meal, for less than $15, in less than 20 minutes.
AND EVERYONE LOVED IT!!
Let’s just say that after that I knew I needed to share it with you. I’m just nice like that. 🙂
(I also wanted to eat it again)
Your family is going to love this light and refreshing, restaurant worthy dinner!
