Sesame-Crusted Tilapia

This is another recipe that I found in Clean Eating Magazine. I love tilapia fillets and I'm always looking for a new way to eat them.  This has quickly become one of my favorites. 

It took about 10 minutes to make, which is perfect for a week night meal.

Sesame-Crusted Tilapia:
(Clean Eating Magazine, March 2011)

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
2 teaspoons olive oil
½  teaspoon sesame oil
4 6-ounce tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 425 degrees..

In a small bowl whisk together the lime juice, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons ginger, 2 teaspoons olive oil, and ½ teaspoon sesame oil.  Place tilapia in a shallow baking pan lined with foil and sprayed with nonstick spray.  Pour marinade over top, coating both sides of the fish.  Sprinkle sesame seeds evenly over the top and bake for 8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Pour lime juice over the top of the fish when serving.
