Its been a while since I’ve done an entry on fish. Fish dinners are one of my hubby’s favorite meals. Our tastes in fish differ. I tend to prefer salmon or sea bass whereas hubby is more partial towards tilapia. We switch off every week. Not only are they tasty if made right, they are also known as brain food. I borrowed this recipe from a chicken dish and it worked just as well with fish ( I’m a poet and didn’t even know it ;-). I used tilapia for this recipe but you can also use salmon,halibut, or sole as well.Like most of my fish recipes, this dish is very easy to prepare and only requires few basic ingredients that most of you already have. This fish serves well with steamed vegetables,mashed potatoes, or whole grain rice. This is a meal for two but you can double the ingredients.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 2 pieces of tilapia
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
- 1 cup of fresh orange juice (no pulp)
- 1 teaspoon of ginger root finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon of low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
- Salt and pepper for taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lay out 2 pieces of tilapia in a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil, a bit of lime juice, and sprinkle some parsley,salt, and pepper. Bake covered for 25 minutes. As the fish is cooking, place orange juice,soy sauce,ginger, and garlic in a small sauce pan. Simmer on low-medium heat till reduced by a half a cup. Drizzle over tilapia and serve hot.
