Stir-Fry Tilapia with Asparagus

I haven't made fish lately and last week tilapia was on sale. Since I meal plan and plan all my meals around what is on sale, this worked out great and wasn't very expensive. It was tasty and we all really enjoyed it.

3/4 lb tilapia, cut into chunks
3 Tbps light olive oil
1 piece shallot, finely chopped
1 tsp crushed red pepper
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3/4 lb asparagus, cut into bite sized pieces
salt and pepper to taste

Season tilapia chunks with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm olive oil. Once oil is warm, add fish and fry until golden brown. Remove fish from pan and set aside.

In the same oil, add the shallot and fry until tender. Add crushed red pepper and garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the asparagus pieces, season with salt and pepper and stir-fry until done.

Add the fish and combine to blend flavors. Serve over brown rice.
