Boxed risotto makes it quick; mushrooms, shallots and cheese make it tasty. Serve the risotto alongside seasoned fish for a weeknight supper in a hurry. —Lynn Moretti, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

  • 1 package (5-1/2 ounces) Parmesan risotto mix
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 1-1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook risotto according to package directions, adding mushrooms and shallots with water.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle tilapia with seafood seasoning. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. In batches, cook tilapia with garlic until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, about 5 minutes, turning fillets halfway through cooking.
  3. Stir Parmesan cheese and remaining butter into risotto; remove from heat. Serve with tilapia.
