Cumin Pan Seared Tilapia

with Honey Lime Coleslaw


Coming up with weeknight dinners can be exhausting. This pan-seared tilapia is fresh, healthy, and easy to make on your busiest of days. Don't worry if you're not a big fan of Cumin—this recipe does not taste like taco seasoning. The Cumin essential oil is used in perfect subtlety within the flavors of the spice-crusted fish and bright slaw.
