This recipe was created by my friend Jen, and shared on her blog. I have been making this spicy tilapia since she posted it last year because we all love it. It is super easy to make, and cooks very quickly. Perfect for the days I work and come home exhausted to a hungry family. Tilapia is also a very versatile fish to work with because it has a mild flavor and doesn't fall apart as much as other white fleshed fish. Don't be scared of fish people! Remember, buy it fresh (the day you are making it) and ask to smell it at the fish counter. If it smells fishy - run! Well, maybe not run, but say no thank you and change your dinner plans. If it is fresh it should not smell fishy at all. Kapeesh?
Recipe from Miss Jen's Kitchen Adventures
