Here is your first healthy dinner recipe:

Spicy Ginger Tilapia
I have just recently fallen in love with eating fish. Before a couple of years ago I couldn't even stand to be around it. Now I crave it. That is why it's important that we try new things and have an open mind when doing so. It is light, heart healthy, and when fresh it is so tasty. Tilapia is my favorite fish to eat, it doesn't have even the teensiest fishy taste or smell. I have also recently enjoyed making my own rubs for meat and fish. This Tilapia was just rubbed down and cooked on a stove top grill until it was perfectly flaky.

Ingredients:

2 Tilapia Filets
2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 t Sea Salt
1 t Rosemary
1/2 t Onion Powder
1/2 t Garlic Powder
1/2 t Ginger
1/2 t Cushed Red Pepper
1/4 t Paprika
1/4 t Cayene Pepper

To Make:

Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl. Rinse and prepare your fish. Rub both sides of the fish with your delicious homemade seasoning blend. Preheat your stove top griddle or pan to a medium/high heat. Add 2 T of Olive Oil to pan before adding fish. Cook the Tilapia about two minutes on each side, or until perfectly flaky. You want the fish to pull apart when touched with a fork. It should be opaque in the center. Remove from heat when done and serve with a lemon wedge and your favorite fresh steamed veggies.
