Tilapia goes back, far back. So far back, the ancient Egyptians had a hieroglyph for our finned little friend here. But don't let the social security checks fool you; this fish can bring out flavors as young as a newborn babe. Here, we've given it the chili-lime treatment, giving it that tang of sweet and zesty. Sweet potatoes and edamame round out a meal that proves that everything old can be new again.

    Cook the Tilapia

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Place tilapia in hot pan and sear on one side until brown and crispy, 3-5 minutes. Flip, and cook until tilapia reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Thinner pieces may finish faster; remove earlier if necessary. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing sauce on tilapia and garnishing sweet potato with cilantro. Squeeze lime quarter over dish. Bon appétit!
