Happy Tuesday Blog Friends! My consumption of lime and cilantro is seriously out of hand! I think I’m edging dangerously close to the need for an intervention!!!
Earlier today I decided to make cilantro lime marinated tilapia for dinner and luckily I remembered to document the super easy process!!! (Blog fail/slack that Katie)
So with minimal time, effort and ingredients you can whip up a tasty healthy dinner and knock a fish serving off the must eat list for the week! I used Tilapia but this would also work on cod, halibut, salmon, etc.
1 cup cilantro leaves
Juice and zest from 2 large limes
1 garlic clove
Fresh jalapeño – base amount on how much kick you want your fish to have
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste
Fish of choice -This amount of marinade will work for 4 filets of fish as well.
Place filets in a shallow baking dish and dust with salt and pepper. Zest limes directly over fish. Set aside.
Bake covered in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, it’s fresh, easy, healthy and filling. Plus it’s a pretty color! I promise to lay off the cilantro lime inspired recipes.
