One of the things I love about fish (apart from its deliciousness) is just how fast it cooks!

And, as an extra bonus, fish defrosts quickly if you buy it frozen.

All of this adds up to a super fast meal!

This dish is great as a side or as a main course, and did I mention it was fast?

And if you’re wondering why I called it “crumbled fish,” it’s because the cooked fish pieces look like they’ve all been crumbled.

Extra Tip:
You don’t need to dice the fish prettily, but it helps if the pieces are all roughly of the same size to ensure they all cook at the same pace.

I just tried the Crumbled Fish Saute’ and I love it. I made it with tilapia and reconstituted dried veggies and it was really great. It would even be better with fresh veggies. I will be making this and versions of it often. The jalapeno really make it pop. Thanks for all your good recipes and advice.
