Introduction

This is a Wonderful recipe that came from a fish taco recipe in Eating Well magazine. This is probably awesome in a fish taco, but I didn't have everything I needed for that, so ate it as it is. One day I may try it in a taco, for now, I'm hooked on this! This is a Wonderful recipe that came from a fish taco recipe in Eating Well magazine.

Ingredients

    3 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon adobo powder (if you don't have, use more regular chile powder instead)
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1 pounds Tilapia, 1/2-3/4 inch thick, skinned and cut into 4 portions (if using George foreman grill like I did, you'll need to cut it into slightly smaller portions)

Directions

Preparation

To prepare fish: Combine chili powder, adobo chili powder (if using), lime juice, oil, cumin, onion powder, garlic power, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub adobo rub all over fish. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes for the fish to absorb the flavor.

Preheat grill/grill pan (I used my George Foreman grill) to medium-high.
Oil the grill rack or use a grilling basket on grill, or spray grill pan/GF grill with olive oil spray. Grill the fish until it is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the fish to a platter. (or use in tacos which is where this recipe originally came from)

Is especially delightful with a squeeze of lime juice over it.
