What's for dinner Wednesday?



I found the recipe from the blog "How Sweet It Is" and it was easy and sooo good!  I'll work on my photography skills.

Crispy Honey Lime Tilapia

4 fresh or thawed tilapia filets
2 T. olive oil
2 T. honey
2 T. lime juice
1 tsp. lime zest
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/3 c. flour
2 T. olive oil for frying
additional honey plus lime zest mixed for drizzling.

1 hour before cooking, season tilapia filets with salt and pepper, then lay in baking dish or in large ziplock bag.  In a bowl combine olive oil, honey, lime juice and zest, and garlic.  Whisk til combined.  Pour over tilapia and marinate for one hour.  Add flour (and a bit more salt, pepper, and lime zest) to a bowl and set aside.

Heat a cast iron skillet or non-stick one over medium high heat and add olive oil.  Dredge each piece of fish through the flour til you have a very light coating.  Making sure the pan is hot, add fish to the oil and cook until flakey and crispy on each side - about 3-4 minutes per side.  Remove tilapia from pan and let drain on paper towel for a few minutes.  Serve with an additional drizzle of lime and honey, then cover in blueberry lime salsa.

Blueberry Lime Salsa

1 c. fresh blueberries
5 medium strawberries
1/4 red onion
1 tsp. lime zest
juice of two limes
1/3 c. fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 avocado, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Combine everything but the avocado in a food processor and pulse about 5 - 6 times, depending on how chunky you like it.  Season with salt and pepper and fold in avocado.  Serve with fish, chicken, chips or eat with a spoon.
