$4.50 / serving

$9 total

This meal comes together so quickly it’s astonishing. Broiled fish is crispy on the outside and flaky and moist on the inside. Serve with rice, a vegetable mash, or a favorite side dish like Spicy Green Beans. If you sauté some vegetables while the fish cooks, dinner will be on the table in minutes. serves 2

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon dried oregano

2 fillets tilapia or other white fish

½ lime

1 Turn your oven’s broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat it evenly with the vegetable oil to keep the fish from sticking.

2 In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, cayenne, cumin, garlic powder, and oregano. Sprinkle them over both sides of the fish and massage gently with your fingers until the fish is covered thoroughly.

3 Place the fish on the prepared baking pan. If you are using a fillet that still has its skin, make sure it is skin-side up so it will get crispy.

4 Broil the fillets for 4 to 7 minutes. The fish will cook very quickly, so check after 4 minutes by gently inserting a butter knife into the thickest part. If it goes through easily and the fish flakes apart, then it’s done. If the knife meets resistance and the fish stays together, put the fillets back under the broiler for another few minutes. Once you’ve made this recipe once or twice, you’ll be able to tell at a glance when your fish is done.

5 When the fish is done, squeeze lime juice over it.

Some broilers are not strong enough to get the skin crispy—if that’s the case for you, pull it off just before serving. Or leave it. Crispy or not, fish skin is delicious.
