I created this recipe years ago when I needed to use up the produce. It is a delicious, and spicy meal.
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 head garlic, peeled & coarsely chopped
kosher salt (approximately 2-3 tsp, to taste)
fresh cracked pepper (approximately 2-3 grinds, to taste)
1 can green chilies (adjust to your taste using mild for no heat and hot for a little heat)
2 tilapia or other white fish fillets, thawed & dried with paper towels
Cilantro, chopped, optional
Combine all ingredients except tilapia & cilantro; place in long shallow bowl; place fillets in marinade & cover. Let sit about 10 minutes.
Gently scrape marinade off fillets & place fillets in baking dish; spoon just the liquid of the marinade over the fish & bake about 5 minutes; remove from oven & spoon remaining marinade liquid over fish & bake another 5-8 minutes, or until fillets are cooked through & flake easily with a fork. Serve with cilantro sprinkled over
Pepper Slaw (1-2 Servings)
1/2 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved OR 1 or 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped.
1 Serrano chili, sliced*
2-3 mini sweet peppers, seeded & julienned
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
cilantro, chopped (to taste)
*remove seeds & ribs to remove some of the heat
Mix all ingredients & refrigerate about 20-30 minutes to chill; mix before serving.
