Wingin’ It Talipia and Pepper Slaw Recipe

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

2 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp olive oil

cilantro, chopped (to taste)

*remove seeds & ribs to remove some of the heat
