Number of Servings: 4


    1 tbsp - Chili powder
    1 tsp - Cayenne Pepper
    1 tsp - Paprika (mild)
    1 Lime
    1 tbsp - Olive Oil
    1 lb. Tilapia fillets

    (Increase Tilapia Filets to 1.5 pounds for heartier appetites.)


1. Preheat oven to 400f

2. Squeeze juice from 1 lime into a small bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add chili powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. (Amounts of each spice can be adjusted to make the spiciness of the dish hotter or milder.)

3. Place fish in a large flat casserole dish or roasting pan (or make foil packets) sprayed with Pam or Olive Oil.

4. Spoon the Chili-Lime mixture over the filets and spread to coat fairly evenly.

5. Cover dish with foil and place in oven for 10 minutes. Turn oven to broil, remove foil and cook for 2-5 more minutes. Check often to be sure the fish doesn't over cook or burn. Exact cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fillets.

*** Serving suggestion - serve over whole grain wild rice with a side of steamed spinach or roasted asparagus. ***

PLEASE NOTE: The tablespoon of chili powder mentioned in the recipe is the bottled blend of spices used to make chili ... it is not straight ground chili peppers. You may wish to adjust the amounts if using ground chili peppers instead of the milder chili powder.
