I have made this recipe many times before. It is a yummy and very simple recipe to make. I typically pair it with roasted broccoli and brown rice (we had it with quinoa this time). I must say that I make this recipe less and less just because I am increasingly becoming NOT o.k. with buying farmed tilapia. This was from Trader Joe’s and on the package it said, farmed tilapia from Thailand. I don’t think I’ll be getting this again. I’ve heard of sustainable tilapia farm’s, but nothing in my area. I need to get acquainted with the local fish here in North Carolina, fish I had never heard of  until I moved here.  Sea Mullet, Trigger fish, Spot? O.k. All I can think of are silly jokes about bad haircuts, or jumpy fish cops, but I’m sure they taste great!

2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 pound tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Combine chili powder, garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a plate. Dredge fillets in the spice mixture to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook until just opaque in the center, gently turning halfway, 5 to 7 minutes total. Squeeze lemon juice over fish when serving.

So, remember how sometimes I say that things don’t always work out the way  you want them too. This night was a perfect example. I have made the Chili Rubbed Tilapia recipe many times, it’s really good. When I was grocery shopping last Saturday, I couldn’t find any tilapia, but they had cod. So I thought, Chili Rubbed Cod, should be about the same. Well, Friday night rolls around and I’m getting ready to make dinner, and then I discover I don’t have any chili powder, the main ingredient! So much for that recipe. I am not comfortable enough with cooking fish to just wing-it, so I go on-line to quickly find a cod recipe with things I already have. I found Cod With Tomato Ginger sauce from myrecipes.com. So this is what I made instead. I didn’t even bother to take pictures, because it wasn’t very good. Follow the link to the recipe if you want to give it a try. Good luck!

Halibut with Chimichurri

I love halibut, it’s one of my favorite types of fish. This recipe was a simple, quick and easy way to fix it. This is adapted from Cooking Light.

1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil

1 Tbsp finely chopped shallots

1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil

1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

salt, black pepper

2-4   halibut fillets

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, season with salt and pepper.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Wipe pan with canola oil. Season halibut with salt and pepper.  Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with sauce.

I served this with brown rice and roasted broccoli.
