  1. Heat water, onion, butter, curry powder, and salt in a large skillet over medium heat until butter is melted, about 2 minutes. Stir rice into onion mixture and arrange frozen white fish over rice. Sprinkle with almonds.
  2. 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.

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.

Very bland, even though I added 1.5 tbsp curry, some garlic powder, black pepper, salt, 2 diced garlic cloves, and other veggies like bell pepper and zucchini.

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!

I tried this recipe and loved how easy it was to prepare and it was very tasty. I cooked as directed but made some addirions/changes. I increased the following: onion 1/2 cup, 1 cup rice, 2 TBS curry powder. I added the following: 1 TSP onion powder, 1/2 TSP garlic powder and 1/2 packet of Sazon. Fantastic and quick!
