Fast Fish Lunch

I picked up some thawed tilapia fillets for a quick lunch. Tilapia is a great fish for those who are relatively new to seafood (*cough*me*cough*) because it has a very mild flavor, and is also a low-mercury fish as it is vegetarian. It is also pretty inexpensive in the fish realm, ranging around $0.50/fillet. A final bonus: it fries up fast. As in, 2-3 minutes on each side on medium-high heat should do it.

Fried Tilapia for One

2 tilapia fillets
Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
3 tablespoons coconut oil (alternative sub: rendered bacon fat!)
shake onion powder
shake ginger powder

Place all but tilapia in a pan on medium-high heat. Once the coconut oil has melted and you have mixed the ingredients in the pan, add the tiliapia and fry 2-3 minutes per side, until fish is white and flaky throughout. Garnish with cubed avocado.
