Ingredients
  • Mushroom Scallion Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups sliced baby portobello mushrooms (cremini)
  • 1/2 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Grits:
  • 5 cups milk
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Grilled Broccoli and Carrots:
  • 1 large bunch broccoli, sliced lengthwise (with stalks and florets intact)
  • 1 bunch whole carrots, tops removed, sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Tilapia:
  • 6 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1/3 cup Jamaican jerk seasoning marinade
Directions
  • Mushroom Scallion Sauce: Melt butter in a large saute pan. Saute mushrooms and scallions for about 3 minutes. Stir in wine and heavy cream. Season with garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Stir until sauce thickens slightly. Keep warm until ready to serve.

  • Grits: Bring milk to a boil. Gradually whisk in grits, butter, salt, and pepper. Stir constantly for about 3 to 5 minutes until grits thicken to desired consistency. Keep warm until ready to serve.

  • Grilled Broccoli and Carrots: Heat grill to medium. Toss broccoli and carrots in olive oil and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Grill vegetables for about 6 minutes or until tender, turning them once halfway through. If room allows, grill tilapia at same time.

  • Tilapia: Heat grill to medium. Rinse and dry fillets and then rub with jerk seasoning. Grill tilapia for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from heat.

  • Plate entree by spooning grits on center of plate. Lay tilapia on top of grits. Lay the carrot slices on top of fish in a criss-cross manner and place broccoli stalk on the side of fish. Top with mushroom scallion sauce and serve immediately.
