Sauteed Garlic and Lime Tilapia - Low Carb


3 tilapia fillets
1/4 vegetable oil (or more if needed)
1-2 tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp sun dried tomato and basil Delallo dipping spices (optional)
1/4 c lime juice
2 tbsp butter

Heat oil in a saute pan on medium heat. Add minced garlic and brown lightly. Add fillets and cook on one side for about five minutes on medium high heat. Turn over, brush fillets with butter, and sprinkle seasoning over fillets. Cook until the fillets get a little flaky (check with a fork). Turn over, sprinkle a little more seasoning and brush with butter. Turn down heat and add lime juice. It will start to steam because of the heat. Cook for a few more minutes and serve.

"The lime and crunchy garlic bits are so tasty on this light white fish. I was surprised at the combination. I just like garlic on protein but I know that fish tastes good with a little acidity, and I didn't have any lemon. I definitely could eat this at least once a week!"
