Chile-Lime Tilapia with Corn Saute

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry. Measure thickness of fish. In a bowl stir together lime juice, ancho chile pepper, and salt. Brush lime mixture evenly over both sides of fish fillets.
  2. In an extra-large nonstick skillet heat 2 tsp. of the oil over medium-high heat. Add fish; cook 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily, turning once. Remove fish from skillet. Cover and keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet heat the remaining 1 tsp. oil. Add the next four ingredients (through garlic); cook about 2 minutes or until vegetables are heated and are just starting to soften, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  4. Divide corn mixture among plates. Top with fish and sprinkle with cilantro. If desired, serve with lime wedges and/or additional jalapeno slices.

While I have not prepared this dish yet, I caution your readers that not all Tilapia is from the Pacific or even an ocean. Tilapia is also produced in Colorado on an alligator farm as well as fresh water lakes in Mexico. Tilapia is a sustainable fish and can be produced in a healthy environment . I look forward to trying this recipe and hopefully providing a good rating.

I totally agree with Libbyet's assessment of the tilapia and corn ingredients. Both are on my "to be avoided" list. Obviously, I will not be making this dish.

Talapia is probably the most toxic fish in the ocean because the majority of them are farmed, especially off the Pacific coast of California and Baja. Corn is about 90% genetically modified., infused with Round-Up. This is not a good place to start.
