Tilapia, a relatively plentiful fish, has the unfortunate reputation of being dull. All it needs is a spice rub, a familiar barbecuing technique that works just as well indoors. You could also use this rub on chicken breasts or toss it with lightly oiled shrimp before cooking.

Recipe Ingredients for Chili-Rubbed Tilapia With Asparagus and Lemon

1 pounds asparagus
1 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 pound tilapia
1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Chili-Rubbed Tilapia With Asparagus and Lemon

  1. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Put asparagus in a steamer basket, place in the pan, cover, and steam until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a large plate, spreading out to cool.

  2. Combine chili powder, garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a plate. Dredge fillets in the spice mixture to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook until just opaque in the center, gently turning halfway, 5 to 7 minutes total.

  3. Divide among 4 plates. Immediately add lemon juice, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and asparagus to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until the asparagus is coated and heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve the asparagus with the fish.
