THAT SAID, sometimes simple is best. And this recipe is most definitely simple. Short-bus simple, even. And super healthy to boot. What we're booting I have no idea, so let's just say we're booting claustrophobia.
Yeah, I don't know either.
All you'll need is:
- 2 fillets of tilapia (or any other fish, really)
- The spice mixture of your choice (or any combination of spices, really)
- A little extra virgin olive oil
- A non-stick pan
- A couple lemon wedges
Next up, heat just a little bit of oil in your pan over medium-high heat. Once you're hot enough (but really, when are you not?), add in your fillets.
Now here's a fun fact about cooking fish, although I suppose "fun" is probably not a very good word to use in this situation, because it's not "fun" like reading or drinking or Wii, so whatever, fill in your own adjective I guess. Wait, where was I?
Fun fact: you cook your fish way more on one side than you do the other. We saw this once before with some salmon fillets, and the same goes here, only since these fillets are so thin it'll take far less total cooking time. And how long is this cooking time? About 3 minutes on your first side, and 1 minute on your flip side.
Aaaaaand you're ready for the plate.
Add a squidge of lemon and you've got yourself a simple, healthy, delicious dinner.
