Baked whole Tilapia

30 Sep

This was inspired by a recipe from another blogger My Kitchen Snippets who did a beautiful baked/grilled tilapia. I made a few changes to suit my own personal taste of course. The results was a very delicious baked fish with a crispy skin and an aromatic topping. I baked the fish, but for those are not as health conscious, frying the fish would result in a very tasty outcome as well. Recipe

For the fish:

1-2 lbs fresh tilapia ( I like mine with the head on)

Salt and pepper

1/2 tsp chili powder

2 tsp of olive oil

For the topping

5 stalk of scallions finely chopped

4 cloves of garlic finely chopped

3 shallots finely chopped

2 Tbs ginger finely chopped

1 jalapeno finely chopped

1 tsp oyster sauce

1/2 tsp fish sauce (Vietnamese)

1. Set the oven to 400 degrees ferinheight.

2. Rub the fish with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with 1/8 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and chili powder. Spread the remaining olive oil on the baking sheet under the fish. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minuets (depending on size) then turn the oven to Broil for 5-7 minuets

3. In a separate pan brown garlic, shallots and ginger. Add scallions, jalapeno, oyster sauce, and fish sauce and cook until soft.

4. When the fish is cooked, top the fish with your cooked toppings and serve.
