We had this recipe at my mom's last week. We usually aren't huge fish eaters, but my kids couldn't help but ask for seconds and even thirds. This was amazing!!! Definitely a staple recipe now! Hope you enjoy it.
Zest and juice from 1 lime
1 1/2 Tbsp. Honey
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 C. flour
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Combine marinade ingredients in a zip lock back or shallow container and place desired number of pieces of tilapia in with marinade. Leave in marinade anywhere from 1-24 hours
When ready to cook, combine flour with salt and pepper on a plate, remove each fish fillet from the marinade and dredge lightly with the flour on both sides, just a light coating.
Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium skillet o0ver medium high heat until shimmering. Cook fillets 2 at a time for 3-4 minutes per side or until opaque and browned. Try not to disturb the fish so that you get a nice browned layer. Serve with lime wedges.
You can freeze the fish with the marinade in zip lock bags, and then thaw and cook as well.
