  • 250 gram Tilapia
  • 3 gram Canola oil Spray Pump

Spice Mix

  • 1 tablespoon Chili powder
  • 0.25 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 0.25 teaspoon Salt


  • Combine chili powder, garlic powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  • Rub tilapia with the spice mix.
  • Add oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tilapia and cook until done flipping once, about 4-7 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillets. The fish is finished if it flakes when you lightly press it with a fork.
  • Serve with lime, a green salad, rice, and asparagus or green beans.


When you fry fish, it is advisable to keep it out of the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes so that the temperature in the pan does not change when it is cooked.
Fry the fish with the side that did not have skin on first.
