Tilapia with Roasted Corn

Last week, we tried out a Rachael Ray recipe for tilapia with roasted corn. Sounds like a very strange combination when you do a read-through of the recipe, but trust me, it works. This was super easy and was very tasty! Even using frozen (thawed) tilapia fillets, it was very good! I'll definitely try this out again - with some fresh fish next time, though, since I've sworn off frozen fish. (When I bought this tilapia, it was the first time I'd bought frozen fish (along with some frozen salmon) and it just isn't the same. Neither Kevin or I really like the frozen stuff, we'd much rather have it fresh.)

Tilapia with Roasted Corn

1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons chili powder
4 tilapia fillets (1 pound total)
1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

Preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grease a 9-inch square baking dish with 1 teaspoon of the mayonnaise mixture. Place the tilapia fillets in the baking dish and coat with the remaining mayonnaise mixture. Top with the corn.

Broil until the corn is lightly browned and the fish is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve with the lime wedges.

Sounds interesting. Maybe we'll have to give it a try. Where do you buy your fish? Meijer didn't seem to have a huge selection when I checked last week. I wish seafood wasn't so expensive.

I've bought some stuff at Meijer - just depends on the Meijer and what they have, though. VGs has pretty good seafood, so does this little market a mile up the road from us. But again, it all depends on the selection that week/month. I've stopped in to Mitchell's Fish Market in Lansing on my way home before and picked up stuff - more expensive, though its very good quality. And there is a meat market in Williamston with fresh seafood that I've bought from, too. I wish it wasn't quite so expensive up here, too.
