For the spicy blueberry coleslaw

Empty the bag of coleslaw mix into a large bowl. Add Greek yogurt, spicy brown mustard, hot sauce, and fresh lime juice. Mix well and plenty. Add the crushed red pepper, sugar, and blueberries. Mix some more! Once the ingredients are evenly distributed, place into the refrigerator to chill.

For the tilapia

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Rinse the tilapia fillets in cold water, and pat dry with a paper towel. Place the fillets in a shallow baking pan. Squeeze the fresh lime juice over the tilapia (half a lime per fillet). Next, pour the melted butter on top. Season with the black pepper, salt, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Place into the oven and bake until the fillets flake easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.

Serve beside a heaping spoonful of the chilled, spicy blueberry coleslaw and dig in!
