  1. Preheat broiler to high for asparagus. Spray a nonstick pan with coconut oil and heat over medium-high for tilapia.
  2. Combine chili powder and garlic salt on a plate or in a medium bowl. Dredge fillets in spices to coat.
  3. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread asparagus out. Drizzle with EVOO or macadamia nut oil and salt. Place under broiler for 9-11 minutes or until desired doneness.
  4. While asparagus is cooking, place tilapia in the pan, turning half way (about 5-7 minutes total, depending on the size of the fillets), until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Divide into 3-4oz servings and serve over asparagus.
