Paprika Tilapia with Quinoa and Cucumbers

Paprika Tilapia with Quinoa and Cucumbers

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup(s) quinoa
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon(s) EVOO
  • 1 pound(s) tilapia boneless, skinless fillets divided into 8 pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) paprika
  • 1 cup(s) English cucumber diced
  • 1/3 cup(s) dill roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup(s) feta, 1 1/2 oz. crumbled
  • 2 teaspoon(s) fresh lemon juice



In a small saucepan, bring quinoa, 2 cups water, and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil over high. Reduce to a medium simmer and cook until water evaporates, about 15 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a medium bowl and let cool 5 minutes.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Pat fish dry and season with salt and pepper; sprinkle with paprika. Cook fillets until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes, flipping halfway through. Stir cucumber, dill, feta, 1 teaspoon oil, and lemon juice into quinoa. Season with salt and pepper. Divide quinoa among four plates and top with fish.
