Ingredients

  • 1

    c. long-grain white rice

  • 2

    c. fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 1

    tsp. grated lemon zest

  • 3

    tbsp. olive oil

  • Kosher salt and pepper

  • 3

    tbsp. paprika

  • 0.75

    tsp. garlic powder

  • 0.75

    tsp. dried thyme

  • 0.25

    tsp. cayenne pepper

  • 2

    tbsp. fresh lemon juice

  • 4

    tilapia fillets

  • Lemon Wedges

Directions

Cook the rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the parsley, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper until finely chopped; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the paprika, garlic powder, thyme, cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Brush the lemon juice over the fish, then coat in the spice mixture. Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the fish in two batches, adding extra oil if necessary, until the fish is beginning to blacken and is opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Fluff the rice with a fork and fold in the parsley mixture. Serve with the fish and lemon wedges, if desired.
