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.
