Chili powder, cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper spice up healthy grilled fish.

  • Servings: 4


1½ Tbsp Ancho Chili Powder or Regular Chili Powder
½ Tbsp Cumin
½ Tbsp Kosher Salt
dash Cayenne
1 tsp Paprika
6 Tilapia Fillets
1 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges


Add all spices together in a small bowl and mix. Sprinkle spice mixture over tilapia fillets and rub into fish. Heat stove top grill or large non stick pan; add butter and oil. When oil is hot add fish. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side or until just cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges and brown rice.

Helpful Tips:

Tilapia fillets are small, so about 1 1/2 per person is a good rule of thumb for a light, but filling, dinner.
