4 (3 ounce)
fresh tilapia fillets
fresh lime juice
fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced into rings
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Yum! This was fast, easy and very good. My hubby kept raving. Didn't have fresh jalapenos on hand so I subbed 1 can of Rotel tomatoes with chilis drained and 1 large fresh tomato. It would be even better with all fresh ingredients. Served with cilantro brown rice, white corn and a southwestern salad.
My family did not like this dish at all. Followed the recipe exactly. They love the broiled parmesan tilapia recipe from here so guess I will stick with it!
I modified it for the grill, and it was really really good!! I also added in more vegetables that I like. It was very spicy also, so I wouldn't necessarily feed this to kids.
My husband "mmmm'd" through the whole meal, ending with, "This recipe is a new family favorite." Because he doesn't handle the jalepeno heat as well as I, I put the slices in the pan, but not on the fish. That gave enough heat for the spark without being too much for his pallet. Excellent!
I normally find tilapia pretty bland, but it really shines in this recipe. Very much enjoyed!
Very light and refreshing. I kept the jalapenos in large pieces so they were easy to pick out, and they still lent their spiciness to the dish.
Rather bland for our tastes. But don't let this stop you from trying it. We just like more muscular recipes.
My husband had never tried fish, but I made this recipe and he loved it. So now he eats fish, Yeepeee!
