For the ingredients, you'll need:
- Tilapia fillets (I used 3)
- Seasoned flour (or just all-purpose flour plus salt and pepper)
- Butter or nonstick spray
- Cilantro (optional)
- Trader Joe's Peruvian Chimichurri Rice with Vegetables (in the frozen section)
First, rub both sides of your fillets with the flour. I used a preseasoned flour from Kentucky Kernel that looks like this:
Zest a lime and sprinkle over one side of the floured fillet. Heat a skillet for about a minute and spray with Pam, or use a tablespoon of butter, to prevent the fillets from sticking. Put the fillets zest side down and allow to cook over medium heat. I add the juice from half the "zested" lime right about now and sprinkle the other side of the fillet with more lime zest. Let cook on this side for about 2 minutes. Then, flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the juice from the other half of the lime. Flip probably one more time until the fillet is done.
Prepare the rice according to the package - I do mine on the stove top rather than in the microwave. This rice is TO DIE FOR.
You're done and ready to serve! Sprinkle a little cilantro on top of the fillets if you have it. The only thing that would've made this meal better is an avocado on the side...the one I had was just too ripe, shoot!
