Honey Lime Tilapia

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.
