Easy Chili Lime Tilapia

I can never seem to be bothered to bake fish, so cooking on the stove top is my preferred method. This is an easy way to dress up tilapia for a quick weeknight dinner.

This is a great way to cook tilapia. Lots of flavor and easy. Made a great "fish n' chips" with sweet potato fries. Made for Spring 2014 PAC.
