How to cook Broiled Tilapia with Lime Chipotle Marinade
- For the Broiled Tilapia:
- 4 tilapia fillets (about 6 ounces each)
- 1/2 cup Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade
- For the Nectarine Salsa:
- 2 ripe nectarines, diced
- 1/4 onion, minced
- 1 Serrano pepper, minced with seeds
- Juice of 1/4 lemon or lime
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- For the Sauteed Zucchini:
- 2 medium zucchini, cut into cubes
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Salt and freshly grated black pepper to taste
- Set oven to broil on high. Marinade fish, coating both sides of each fillet evenly, for 15-20 minutes, and place in refrigerator until ready to broil.
- Make the salsa by mixing ingredients together and setting in the fridge until ready to use.
- When fish is ready, place on an aluminum foil-lined baking pan (trust me, it’ll be easier to clean later). Place on topmost rack in the oven, broil for approx. 10 minutes, watching carefully.
- As fish is broiling, put 1 tbsp. butter onto a skillet heated on medium high. When butter has melted, put zucchini onto skillet. Saute until tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Fish is ready when it is flaky and white.
- Serve the Broiled Tilapia with Lime Chipotle Marinade witn nectarine salsa and a side of sauteed zucchini.
The Broiled Tilapia with Lime Chipotle Marinade
recipe very simple to cook and very tasty too!
Quick, healthy and easy dinner within 30 minutes. Wow that sounded cheesy. It is broiled tilapia with lime chipotle marinade, served with a side of nectarine salsa, and sauteed zucchini. Just to warn you – this fish has some heat. The marinade gets into the fish easily as opposed to other meats such as poultry or pork. So 15-20 minutes of marinating in the fridge will be more than enough to give the tilapia it’s hotness.
