What's For Dinner?

Chili-Rubbed Tilapia with Asparagus and Lemon, that's what! I got this great recipe from Ellen. It is fast and healthy and we love it! Here's what you need:
2 lbs. asparagus, tough ends removed
2 TBSP. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt, divided
1 pound tilapia fillets
2 TBSP. olive oil
3 TBSP. lemon juice
Steam the asparagus for about 3 minutes on the stove top or in the microwave, drain and set aside. Combine the chili powder, garlic powder and 1/4 tsp. salt on a plate and dredge the tilapia fillets in this mixture. Heat oil in a large skillet and add the fish. Cook just until opaque, gently turning halfway through, about 5-7 minutes total. Remove the fish to a plate. To the skillet add the remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, lemon juice and the asparagus. Toss until heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve the asparagus with the fish. I added wild rice because hubby is a rice man. A mixed green salad would be even healthier.
