Number of Servings: 1


    2 large tilapia fillets (or similar thin white fish) - about 3/4 pound
    1 jalapeno pepper (optional)
    3 garlic cloves
    1 inch grated ginger (1 tablespoon)
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1/4 cup white wine
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1/3 cup chopped cilantro
    Scallions, chopped for garnish
    Extra cilantro, to garnish


Heat the oven to 475F. Pat the fish dry and season lightly with salt and pepper. Place in a glass baking dish.

Chop the pepper and garlic, and grate the ginger. Put in a small food processor with the soy sauce, white wine, sesame oil, and cilantro. Whir until blended. Pour the sauce over the fish, rubbing it in a little. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily and is cooked through. It will be very moist and gelatinous, still.

Serve immediately over brown rice, garnished with scallions and cilantro.

  • I found this on the same website. Thanks for putting it into sparkpeople so that I didn't have to. It was good, but I have other favorite tilapia recipes that I like a little better. - 4/4/12
