Pan-seared Tilapia with Jalapeno-Lime Butter

A friend of mine gave me a goodie-bag full of home grown cherry tomatoes and jalapenos yesterday.  Score!  The tomatoes didn't last long around me.  (If you have never eaten a home grown tomato, you are missing out!)  I concocted this jalapeno-lime butter to dress up seared tilapia, and it was a big hit. 

I've got 3 jalapenos left- any ideas?

Seared Tilapia

*  Gluten-free diners should double-check their seasoning for gluten sources.

1 tbsp olive oil
4 tilapia fillets
Salt and pepper (or Cajun seasoning if you're feeling spicy!)

1.  Pat fillets dry with a paper towel and season on both sides with salt and pepper.
2.  Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Add the tilapia and cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3-4 minutes per side.
