Recipe: Baked Southwest Tilapia


A gluten-free, Dairy-free, whole food recipe

This is a simple evening meal that takes very little prep time. Keep in mind that you can use this recipe for any type of white fish you prefer. Ideally, try to find wild versus farm-raised fish. If you don’t care for too much spice, go lightly on the cayenne pepper. Serve with a whole grain and a green vegetable for a complete meal.

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
4 skinless tilapia fillets, about 6 oz each
2 tbs olive oil, divided
1 lime, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rinse and pat tilapia dry. In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, chili powder, sea salt, black pepper and cayenne. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of tilapia.

Coat a baking sheet with 1 tbs of olive oil. Arrange tilapia in a single later on the baking sheet. Drizzle the tilapia with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and bake 7-9 minutes or until it is a light golden brown and just begins to flake. Garnish with lime wedges.
