Tilapia with Spicy Orange Salsa

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

I usually make this dish in the Summer time and lately I've been wishing for Summer to come very soon since this week has been incredibly cold. Until then, I guess I'll be bringing Summer into my kitchen. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

4 tilapia fillets, fresh or thawed
2 oranges, peeled and ends trimmed 
1 lime
1/2 white onion, diced
2 scallions, chopped
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon butter, cut into cubes
Sea salt and chili powder

Hold orange over a bowl, cut along the membrane on both sides of each segment using a paring knife, free the segments and repeat with remaining fruit. Squeeze the membranes to extract the juice. Zest the lime, cut and squeeze juice of lime. Drizzle olive oil, add the red pepper flakes, chopped scallions and season with sea salt. Refrigerate salsa until ready to plate. Meanwhile, place the tilapia fillets in a baking sheet, season with sea salt and chili powder. Add the little pieces of butter over the top of each tilapia fillet. Bake the tilapia at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until flaky. Serve warm with spicy orange salsa along with some white rice or salad. Enjoy!

I love citrus in the winter... it helps get past the winter blues.

Yummy! I rarely eat fish that I don't personally catch... for what reasons honestly I don't know, ha! But, this looks great! I could use a dose of summer in my life as well :)
