I don't know where my mom found this recipe, but I remember eating it when I was little. This is a great recipe for when you don't have time to watch everything in the kitchen, but it's nice enough that I've served it to company!

  • Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes. Fish should be heated through, and the flesh should be opaque and flake easily. Mix in peas and fluff rice with a fork before serving.

Really great recipe! I followed it more closely than I normally do with recipes but I did make a couple of minor adjustments...I more than doubled the amount of (spicy) curry powder because we like strong flavors substituted extra virgin olive oil for the butter (next time I might try coconut oil instead to add a hint of sweetness) and I cooked the rice and pea mixture on the stovetop and broiled the tilapia fillets with the almonds on the top rack of my oven. Other than that I followed it exactly and was extremely happy with how it turned out...even my picky(ish) seven year old ate a whole plate of it! Read More

Had to create an account to rate this recipe. I barely ever use recipes and usually just make my own but this is what I live for. The easiest meals that are nutritious and simple to cook. Great easy recipe only thing I tweaked was curry powder because I love lots of spice. This can probably be done in rice cooker too. Read More

I made this with canned peas and carrots since that's the only veg I had on hand other than fresh. I followed the recipe but found I needed to add more salt. Maybe seasoning the fish first would help but overall I liked it and would make it again (and my hubby liked it too and he hates trying new things!!!) Read More

I made this as written, except I added extra peas and used brown rice. (It did take longer than 20 minutes for ours to cook.) We enjoyed it. This recipe lends to creative variations. I would now like to try some of the suggestions by other reviewers such as ginger, Old Bay seasoning, raisins, mushrooms, celery, broccoli, and bell peppers, but not all together. As we are trying to add more fish to our diet, this will be a nice addition to our go to recipes. Read More
