Total Time: 20 Minutes   Prep Time: 5 minutes   Cook Time: 10 minutes


Makes 4 servings

  • Zest of 3 limes
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp. coconut oil, melted, divided

Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. In a small bowl, combine lime zest, garlic, salt, pepper and 4 teaspoons coconut oil.

Coat tilapia fillets with the oil mixture on both sides. Place fillets, two at a time, in the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, until golden and crisp.

In a large bowl, toss the spinach with the remaining tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Divide among four serving plates. To serve, top each plate with a fillet, and drizzle with lime juice.
