I'm feeling saucy.

When the weather gets cold, I always want sauces and gravy. On everything. And. I was simply delighted when this little stack of dinner turned out so delicious.

I must also say that I made this entire meal without one trip to the store. Yay me!

This meal involved the following ingredients:

Trader Joe's Frozen Panko Crusted Tilapia
Trader Joe's Frozen Roasted Vegetables
1/2 can of Cannelini beans
1 poached egg
Lizzy's Hollandaise Sauce

Pop the tilapia in the oven according to the package directions. Saute the roasted vegetables according to the package directions. Add the beans to the vegetables. Set aside.

Poach an egg.

While the egg is cooking, make the hollandaise sauce as follows:

5 egg yolks
1/2 serrano pepper
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
1 cube butter
2/3 cup 2% milk
2-3 Tablespoons lime juice

Mix the egg yolks, the serrano pepper, salt and pepper in a blender until eggs are frothy and thick. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the milk. Heat both until hot, but not boiling. With the blender going, stream the hot butter and milk mixture into the egg mixture. When you've added half the butter and milk, add the lime juice and continue blending. Stream in the rest of the butter and milk. Blend until all frothy and saucy. If it's too thin, pour it into the saucepan and stir over low heat until it thickens up, about a minute or so.

Stack the fish, cover with vegetables and beans, top with a poached egg and cover with hollandaise sauce.

This was seriously delicious.
