Ingredients list for the Roasted Chili-Lime Tilapia Recipe
- 3 tilapia fillets (or any white fish, wild caught if possible)
- 1 large sweet potato, cut into fries (or 2 medium)
- 1 broccoli head, cut into florets
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (or juice of 2 limes)
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons olive oil + 2 for veggies
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or 4 crushed garlic cloves)
- 1 teaspoons red chili flakes, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
- Salt and fresh cracked pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves, for garnish
- 1 small bird-eye pepper, sliced for garnish, optional
1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (210°C). Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
2. Whisk together 2 tablespoons olive oil, water, garlic, lime juice, honey, chili flakes, chili powder, cumin and cilantro in a small bowl.
3. Place sweet potato fries and broccoli in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well. Make some space for the white fish fillets and place tilapia in the reserved spaces. Brush fish with the chili-lime mixture.
4. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork and the broccoli begin to crisp up on the edges and have softened, about 20 – 25 minutes. Serve the baked tilapia garnished with cilantro, sliced chili peppers and lime wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
Note: Tilapia is a versatile and mild fish, but sometimes is has an off-flavor that some cooks would call “muddy”. Don’t hesitate to go heavy on spices as it will greatly reduce this off-flavor and enhance the taste of the fish.
