Crispy Honey Lime Tilapia

 We are trying to get more fish into our diet and we recently discovered Tilapia...we also like cod. This sounded delicious when I found the recipe and couldn't wait to try it!

Crispy Honey Lime Tilapia-How Sweet It Is
1 lb tilapia filets, patted dry
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp lime zest
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1/3 cup flour
2 tbsp olive oil
honey and lime zest for garnish

Place 2 tbsp oil, honey, lime juice, zest, and garlic into resealable bag. Place fish inside and marinate for one hour.

Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in pan until hot. Season fish with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Once oil is hot add fish and fry until golden brown. Flip and continue to cook on other side. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel. Drizzle with additional honey and lime zest.

*This was BY FAR THE BEST FISH I've ever had! I can't wait to have it again. It was flavorful and crispy on the outside! YUM-O
