Tilapia fillets are rubbed with a hot spice mix, sprinkled with orange zest, and baked. I serve these with chili garlic sauce as a dip.

This recipe was way, WAY too spicy for us and we're native Texans who like things hot and spicy. When we started eating and realized how hot this recipe was, we had to cook something else for our 4-year-old daughter so that she didn't burn her mouth.

If you make this as instructed be prepared for an inferno in your mouth. I think the flavours are too complex for such a mild fish.
