Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (210°C). Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

2. Whisk together 2 tablespoons olive oil, water, garlic, lime juice, honey, chili flakes, chili powder, cumin and cilantro in a small bowl.

3. Place sweet potato fries and broccoli in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well. Make some space for the white fish fillets and place tilapia in the reserved spaces. Brush fish with the chili-lime mixture.

4. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork and the broccoli begin to crisp up on the edges and have softened, about 20 – 25 minutes. Serve the baked tilapia garnished with cilantro, sliced chili peppers and lime wedges, if desired. Enjoy!

Note: Tilapia is a versatile and mild fish, but sometimes is has an off-flavor that some cooks would call “muddy”. Don’t hesitate to go heavy on spices as it will greatly reduce this off-flavor and enhance the taste of the fish.

    I liked the flavors a lot, but ... :). The chili-lime mix was very runny and way too much for 3 filets. I left out the water and next time will use only 1/4 c lim and spritz w/fresh lime after baking if needed. Also, I used a bag of broccoli florets straight out of the freezer and they cooked perfectly in the 20 minutes.

    I marinated the fish in the sauce, and after cooking at a quick dash of sea salt and a squeeze of lime and it was delicious

    The veggies were yummy, but the fish had little flavor. Since the sauce is mostly liquids when you rub it on the fish it just slid right off so it didn’t really absorb any of the flavor. Not sure if I’d make again.
