Fast Fish

You know it.
Those crazy evenings.
That all too familiar rush hour dinner crunch where the kids are pestering you about what time dinner is going to ready as they raid the fridge for snacks.

It's tempting to throw in a frozen whatever or call for fast food, but did you know there are healthy dinner ideas that don't require a lot of cooking time and can be on the table in under 20 minutes?

Fish fillets is one of those meals.
Tilapia
is one of our favorites. It is a flaky white fish with a sweet flavor.
This dish can be cooked in a nonstick frying pan or baked in the oven.
Add rice or couscous and a green salad and you will have a meal together faster than any pizza driver could make it to your door, and a lot
healthier too!


Chili Lime Tilapia

  • 4 Tilapia fillets
  • zest and juice of one lime
  • 2 tbsp chili powder or to taste
  • salt and pepper
  • butter
  • olive oil
In a skillet heat a splash of olive oil and a pat or two of butter.
Sprinkle the fish all over with the lime zest, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Fry in the oil butter combination until golden brown on the outside and just cooked through. (Or bake in preheated 350F oven)
Drizzle with the lime juice and serve.

Wine Suggestion: Viognier

Cheers!
