For nights when it seems like there’s no time to cook, remember this easy fish recipe that takes only 13 minutes from start to finish. It features mild, kid-friendly tilapia that’s gussied up with a robust spice blend pulled from the pantry. A little melted butter gets brushed on the fish for richness and to help the spices adhere, and a quick turn under the intense heat of the broiler has the fish perfectly cooked in no time. Serve with simple roasted Brussels sprouts or broccoli, or pile onto a plate of hearty greens tossed with vinaigrette.
