Spicy Lime Tilapia

Spicy Lime Tilapia (great for all phases)


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp red-pepper flakes
  • 2 cups lightly packed baby spinach
  • 12 asparagus tips
  • 2 tilapia fillets (3 to 4 oz each)
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 2 lime quarters
  • Salt and pepper

To make chili oil, combine the olive oil and the red-pepper flakes in a small bowl and microwave it on high for 30 seconds. Set it aside. For each serving, lay an 18-inch length of aluminum foil flat on a work surface and arrange half the spinach and six asparagus tips in the center. Place a fillet on top, and top the fillet with half the scallion pieces, half the chili oil, and the juice from a lime quarter. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Fold the foil up and over the food, crimping the edges closed and creasing the sides to form a tent. Bake in a 450°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
