Chili Lime Fish
Being from the coast of Peru, I grew up mostly on fish. I love me some Peruvian ceviche and whenever I eat out, I almost always order the seafood. However, I fell in love with an amazing man who's allergic to anything with scales and fins. I love my husband more than I love fish, so I don't cook it very often at home because he's not his best self when his chest closes and he can't breath....but every time he's NOT gonna be home for dinner, I have an affair. A foodie affair that is. Thankfully, my children love fish too. So, they might look like their dad, but the taste bud genes came from me. This dish took about 15 minutes to make, so it's perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.
2 filets of fresh wild tilapia (or any other white fish)
1/4 tsp of chili powder
1/2 tsp of paprika
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of cumin
Juice of one lime
S&P al gusto
2 Tbsp of olive oil
Paso a paso
1) Mix all spices and lime juice.
2) Marinate fish for 5 minutes, then heat up olive oil in a frying pan and cook fish for 3 minutes on each side.
4) Serve with side of asparagus and topped with salsa and avocado. For a heartier meal I'd add some organic black beans or a 1/2 cup of boiled quinoa.
