4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets or other mild white fish
4 lime slices
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic; saute 2 minutes. Stir in water, lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat; set aside.
Combine 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, flour, and red pepper in a shallow dish. Lightly coat fillets with cooking spray; dredge in flour mixture.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large ovenproof skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add fillets; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from heat. Spoon lime mixture evenly over fillets; transfer skillet to oven and bake 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lime slices.
Good recipe, but I would recommend putting about half the red pepper it calls for because it did over power the other flavors, and also only about 2 tablespoons of lime juice, other than those adjustments it was good.
My entire family loved this recipe. I made a double batch and there were NO leftovers :-) The lime sauce was slightly strong, but I served it with quinoa which toned it down a little. We'll definitely have this again!!!
