MB's Baked Costa Rican-Style Tilapia with Pineapples, Black Beans and RiceSubmitted by: SWEENEYME
1 Cup Brown Rice
2 Cups Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
1/4 Cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Lime, Juiced
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Fresh Cilantro, plus more for garnish
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1 tsp. Sugar
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
4 (5-7 Ounce) Tilapia Filets, Rinsed and Patted Dry
2 Cups Medium Salsa
1 (15-ounce) Can Black Beans, Drained and Rinsed
2 Cups Diced Fresh Pineapple
2 Limes, Thinly Sliced
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, oil, 2 Tbsp of the cilantro, the garlic, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tilapia filets to the marinade, turning to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, turning occasionally.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Stir together the cooked rice, salsa, beans, and remaining 2 Tbsp. of the cilantro in a 2 or 3-quart baking dish. Remove the tilapia from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and lay the fish filets over the rice mixture, overlapping if necessary. Pour the reserved marinade over the fish. Shingle the lime slices over the fish. Bake until the fish flakes easily, is opaque, and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro before serving.
