For a “non-fishy-tasting” fish, tilapia is a top pick. Mild, light and flaky, it soaks up whatever seasonings it’s cooked with, making a flavorful recipe like this one helpful to have on hand. In a food processor, you’ll combine olive oil with a small onion, fresh cilantro, chili powder and coriander–plus a surprise summer ingredient (hint: it makes great shortcakes!)–to create a simple rub. Once applied, all it takes it three minutes on the grill, and dinner is served!

A dash of coriander adds warm, citrusy flavor to this light, white fish. Click here to buy Simply Organic Coriander.
