Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon freshly grated galangal root, preferably grated with a rasp-style grater
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3 tangerines, peeled and diced
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • ½ red bell pepper, finely diced
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 ½ pound tilapia fillet
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon avocado oil or organic canola oil, divided

Instructions

  1. Whisk lime juice, honey, galangal and ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Gently stir in tangerine, scallions, bell pepper and cilantro and set aside.
  2. Place tilapia in a large baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Sprinkle flour over the fish and turn to coat.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon canola in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Cook about half of the tilapia in the skillet until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the fish to a plate and keep warm. Reduce temperature to medium-low and add the remaining 1 teaspoon canola oil to the skillet. Cook the remaining tilapia until browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Serve the fish with the salsa.
