Tilapia with Cauliflower and Zucchini panackes

Luke (my 3 year old) loved the Tilapia... it was so easy to make and tasted great too!

Here are the recipes:

Panko crusted tilapia
2 Tilapia fillets
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp olive oil
kosher salt
1 cup panko flakes (japanese style breadcrumbs)
chives for garnish

Combine mustard and olive oil then set aside.
Lightly salt and pepper each piece of fish. Then paint both sides of the fillets with the mustard mixture and press in the panko flakes.
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp butter(unsalted) in a non-stick pan until the butter melts. Add the fillets and cook over medium heat for about 4 minutes. Turn them over and cook another 5 minutes or until done. Sprinkle chives on each fillet before serving.

Roasted Cauliflower
Preheat oven to 400. Cut up and wash cauliflower then place on baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. Roast for about 30 minutes, flipping after 15 minutes or once they start to brown a bit. When they are done, turn oven off then sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top and keep in oven so it melts.
