  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the tilapia fillets in a glass baking dish and rub on all sides with the olive oil. Stir together chili powder, cayenne pepper, and cumin in a small bowl. Sprinkle the tilapia on both sides with the spice mixture, then sprinkle orange zest over top.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until the tilapia is no longer translucent and flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.

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.



SPICY HOT! but oh so tasty.
