Drenched Tilapia with Roasted Broccoli

This is truly one of the best fish dishes I've ever made.  It was super easy because all I did was use my Peppercorn Dressing that I already had in the fridge, some Pecorino Romano cheese, and Tilapia filets.

I covered each piece of fish with dressing and cheese, and a shot of white wine and baked them for about 15 minutes till done.

You can totally substitute Ranch Dressing and whatever cheese you like.

So simple, so sublime.

I also roasted the broccoli in the oven on 400 degrees.

I made an oil vinaigrette: olive oil, mustard, garlic, salt, pepper, and paprika. Whisked it together in a large bowl, added the broccoli florets and tossed it by covering the bowl with a plate and shaking it up.  This coats the broccoli really well and seasons it quite nicely.  Throw in the oven and roast till just slightly crunchy.

So yummy.  Everyone liked it so it's a keeper!
