Foodie Friday: Tilapia with Chile-Lime Butter

Doesn't this look soo yummy?


I found this wonderful recipe for Tilapia with Chile-Lime Butter on Pinterest, which sent me to { Veronica's Cornucopia }. It was super easy to make (we actually baked the tilapia instead of frying it), and so very, very good!!!! We ate fried peppers as a healthy, but equally delicious, side.

For the butter:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 tablespoon finely chopped shallot (I used green onion)
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh Thai or Serrano chile, including seeds (this adds almost no heat – use more if you like it hot!)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cilantro for garnish

For the fish:
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tilapia fillets
Stir together butter, shallot, zest, lime juice, chile and salt in a bowl.  Pat dry the fillets and sprinkle with salt.  Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over moderately high heat until just smoking, then saute the fillets, turning over once with a spatula until golden brown and just cooked through (4-5 minutes).  Transfer to a plate.
Serve each warm fillet with a dollop of chili lime butter spread over the top.  Garnish with cilantro.
