Clean and Healthy Tilapia

Eating clean and healthy does not mean boring.
This recipe really kicks it up a notch, both in
flavor and with your metabolism. Cayenne, ginger,
and mustard are ingredients that help you burn
 fat. Plus you get the health benefits of tilapia.
Another nice thing is that it only takes 5 minutes
 to prep. Easy, easy!
 I combine the ingredients in a shallow pie dish.
 Dip the filets into the seasoning, coating both
sides.  These were rather large filets so I only
 used 3. The seasoning mix is enough for 4 filets
 or 5-6 smaller ones. Spoon any remaining
seasoning over the fish on the sheet. 
Put them on a baking sheet and into a 400º
 oven for 10-12 minutes until the fish flakes easily. 
I love fish with a spray of lemon juice. 
Leftovers make great fish tacos the next day.
