Chili-Rubbed Tilapia with Asparagus & Lemon

April/May 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (168 votes)

Tilapia, a relatively plentiful fish, has the unfortunate reputation of being dull. All it needs is a spice rub, a familiar barbecuing technique that works just as well indoors. You could also use this rub on chicken breasts or toss it with lightly oiled shrimp before cooking.

Easy and a hit!

This is so easy! I have found that any veggie will work. Don't be put off by the asparagus. I have done it with broccoli and green beans. Will probably try it with kale or spinach at some point. I had to leave out the salt due to low sodium diet. I did deglaze the pan with a little white wine. I felt it needed some liquid and just threw some white wine in and that was good. This is a hit with my whole family.

Delicious, Simple and Fast!

I used two big fillet of tilapia that totaled one pound and I needed to use more chilli powder and it taste great--not too spicy at all. I served with a creamy parmesean polenta to round out the meal. Turned out amazing!

Easy, quick, tasty, filling, healthy
