I love a little spice in my life, and with this dish, that’s exactly what you get! A few pantry staples and 20 minutes are all you need for this light, flaky tilapia.

What You Need:

(Makes: 4 servings)

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of ground ancho chili pepper

1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin

4 tilapia fillets (4 to 5 ounces each)

1/3 cup of chipotle mayonnaise

1 teaspoon of lime juice

1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano

What to Do:

STEP 1) Combine the salt, ancho chili pepper, cayenne, oregano, garlic powder, cumin; sprinkle over fillets. Cook fillets in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

STEP 2) Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and oregano in a small bowl. Serve with fillets.

STEP 3) Enjoy!
