Chili-Rubbed Tilapia

  • This dish brings the heat! I made the recipe as directed minus the salt and it tasted great. Pan frying the fish delivered a tender fillet. In the future I would scale the chili powder down to 1 tablespoon. We served the fish with roasted sweet potatoes with Strawberry Honey Glazed Pork Chops  , french cut green beans and Parmesan Breadsticks . The mild taste from the green beans and bread sticks really complements the spicy kick from the fillets. 
  • Enjoy~ 
  • Recipe from Eating Well 
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided- I skipped the salt
  • 1 pound tilapia, Pacific sole or other firm white fish fillets
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Combine chili powder, garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a plate. Dredge fillets in the spice mixture to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook until just opaque in the center, gently turning halfway, 5 to 7 minutes total. Divide among 4 plates.
