Hey Friends,

Today’s Southwestern Tilapia recipe comes from the blog, Big Girl. Small World, all the way from Korea. 감사합니다 (Thanks)! This dish is healthy, quick , easy and really spices up your life!

Cook Time: 7-9 minutes, Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1/2 (teaspoon) garlic powder
  • 1/2 (teaspoon) chili powder
  • 1/8 (teaspoon) cayenne pepper
  • 2 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1 (tablespoon) extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2  lime, cut into wedges
  • 1-Zucchini (I used two cause I like my veggies =)
  • 1-Green/Yellow/Red Peppers (I used two here as well!
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 onion (optional)

Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Season fish with garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne ,salt and pepper on both sides (you can mix them all together in a bowl first, but I’m all about reducing dishes to clean!
    2. Coat a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Arrange tilapia in a single layer on the baking sheet. Drizzle tilapia with the remaining tablespoon of oil and bake until golden brown and flesh begins to flake, 7 to 9 minutes. Serve with lime wedges on the side. ( I didn’t have lime wedges at the time, so i just put a dash of lime juice over the fillets and garnished with avocado–super yummy)
    3. Saute peppers and zucchini (an onions if you love them like i do) in olive oil and garlic pepper.
    4. Voila, a delicious, healthy meal.

I served the dish with left over rice (frozen white rice with corn and jalapenos from H.E.B) that had a jalapeno twist and it was perty darn yummy (imagine a southwestern cowboy accent here… corny?, i know =)

I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
