Dukan Pan Seared Tilapia with Parmesan Noodles

We both liked this, but our noodles didn't seem to have enough flavor.

Pan Seared Tilapia with Parmesan Noodles
We found this recipe on  It sounded and looked yummy.  The tilapia was well flavored, we used more than a pinch, but our noodles needed a little more time.

You'll want to be sure your noodles are dry before you add them back to the pan and perhaps add a little more of each spice to the noodles.  All in all it was a tasty, light dish as we kick off our countdown to vacation (meaning we need to lose a few pounds before we go).

Serves 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

2 pkgs. House Brand Tofu Shirataki Noodles - Spaghetti or Angel Hair shaped
3 tilapia filets, rinse and pat dry

For fish:
2 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. dried oregano
1/8 t. dried basil
1/8 t. dried cilantro
1 pinch salt and pepper

For noodles:
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese (fresh is better, but from the can is ok too)
1 t. lemon juice
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. dried basil
1/4 t. dried oregano
1/4 t. dried cilantro
1 pinch of salt and pepper

Boil noodles in salted water for 5-7 minutes.  Drain and dry.  Sprinkle fish with fish ingredients.  Pan sear for about 2 minutes on each side (until flakey and brown). Remove from pan.  Add noodles back to pan, add cheese and stir.  Then add other noodles ingredients, toss and divide noodles onto two plates.  Top with tilapia.



  1. my favourite place in Victoria was fisherman's wharf where there is a little community of these amazing floating homes and a pet seal, you can buy raw fish from one of the shops to feed him. its awesome and quaint and something so different its a definite must see.

    Thanks, Leah...the noodles are definitely a lifesaver for us...we miss our pasta, but these don't make you feel sluggish after your meal.
