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!
