Honey Lime Tilapia

Submitted by: FITLEANHOLLY


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    For the fish and marinade:
    4 (4-5oz) tilapia fillets (thawed if frozen)
    Juice and zest of 1 lime
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 1/2 Tbsp honey
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp garlic powder

    For dredging and cooking:
    1/2c flour (I tried both white flour and whole wheat pastry flour with good results)
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1-2 Tbsp olive oil


Directions

Assemble marinade by combining lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a gallon-sized zip-top bag or shallow container with a lid. Add fish and marinate in the refrigerator anywhere from 1 hour up to 24 hours*.

When ready to cook, combine flour with salt and pepper on a plate. Remove each fish fillet from the marinade and dredge lightly with the flour on both sides (just a light, light coating).

Heat 1-2 Tbsp olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Cook fillets 2 at a time for 3-4 minutes per side or until opaque and browned (this works best if you donít disturb the fish much while letting it cook).

Serve with lime wedges or peach salsa.

Serves 4.

*If you want to plan this meal in advance, you can prepare the fish and marinade in a large freezer bag and keep it in the freezer. Move frozen fish and marinade to the refrigerator the morning you plan to serve the fish and allow it to thaw in the refrigerator. It will marinate while it thaws!
