Lemon Tilapia

Lemon Garlic Tilapia
From Every Kitchen Tells Its Stories

Prep time (marinating): 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5-10 minutes
Serves 2

2 tilapia fillets
1 tbsp olive oil
Cajun spice to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of ½ a lemon
1 clove of garlic, minced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
Garnish: chopped cilantro or parsley

1. In a small bowl combine marinade ingredients. Coat fish and allow to marinate for 5 minutes NOT LONGER.
2. Heat non-stick fry pan on high until hot (2-3 minutes) add oil, swirl once or twice and add fish fillets. Lower heat to medium high and sprinkle with Cajun spice to taste. Cook for five minutes or so and turn fish over. Cook for an additional five minutes or less. The fish is ready when it is white in color.
3. Garnish with cilantro or parsley and additional Cajun spice if you like it hot (or not if you just like a little kick) and serve.
Tips & Variations
Halibut or other firm-fleshed fish works well too.

Great with steamed green vegetables and new potatoes.
