Southwestern Tilapia

I have a lot coming up these next few weeks including a trip to Minnesota! Soooo excited! I will be going MIA for awhile but at least this time it won’t be from depression but for fun events!!!

I have been on a cooking spree this week as well. I blame it on the change in birth control and my body trying to adapt to it. I guess adapting means cooking, cleaning and (as my co-worker puts is) nesting in general. This week I decided to use up the frozen tilapia that I had in my freezer. Best decision ever!

  So here is the most delicious tilapia you will ever eat!!!!!! It is very very easy and It is also Paleo friendly!

  • 1 (teaspoon) garlic powder
  • 1 (teaspoon) chili powder
  • 1/4 (teaspoon) cayenne pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 2 (tablespoon) extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 (lime) lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 Zucchini
  • 2 Green/Yellow/Red Peppers


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, chili powder and cayenne. Season fish with salt and pepper on both sides. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly over both sides of tilapia.
  2. Coat a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Arrange tilapia in a single layer on the baking sheet. Drizzle tilapia with the remaining tablespoon of oil and bake until golden brown and flesh begins to flake, 7 to 9 minutes. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
  3. Saute peppers and zucchini in olive oil and garlic salt.
  4. Enjoy!
