Ideal Protein recipe: Southwestern Tilapia

Southwestern Tilapia


  • 4 8oz fillets

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1 lime

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  2. In a small bowl mix spices together.

  3. Drizzle each fillet with olive oil.

  4. Sprinkle each fillet with the mixture of spices.

  5. Squeeze lime juice over the fillets.

  6. Flip the fillets over & repeat steps 3-5.

  7. Bake until golden brown & flesh begins to flake (~9-12 minutes or so).

Verdict: I quartered it and made it with cod, and it was okay. Definitely a keeper. Needed a bit more heat, if anything, so more cayenne pepper next time.
