    Halcyon Eve's Note:

    Tilapia is popular in many Asian cuisines. Use low-sodium soy sauce to cut back on the sodium, if desired. I wasn't crazy about it, but so far I haven't liked any tilapia recipes--I just don't like the taste of the fish, I guess! The topping is good, though, and I will probably use it with other kinds of fish I do like--like snapper or cod. I did find that it took a lot longer to cook than the recipe originally called for (10-12 minutes at 425* F), so I've updated it. If you are using thin fillets in single layers, you may want to cut back on the heat and time a bit. You can always cook it longer if needed, but you can't un-cook it!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 (6 ounce) tilapia fillets
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
    • 1 bunch green onion, chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450* F. Wash fillets and pat dry. Tuck thin ends under so the whole fillets will be of equal thickness.
    2. 2
      Place each fillet on 12x15” pieces of foil.
    3. 3
      Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and pepper and spoon over fillets. Sprinkle scallions on top of each fillet. Fold the foil over fish and crimp edges to seal.
    4. 4
      Place packets on baking sheet in a single layer.
    5. 5
      Bake at 450* F for 12 to 15 minutes, until foil is puffed and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

      Way too salty, probably because I did not use the low-sodium soy sauce like it was suggested. Fresh ginger is key.

      Very good! I cut the recipe in half but kept the full amount for the liquid. I did add a minced clove of garlic, some red/yellow peppers (to use up), 1 large mushroom sliced and used the green onion. I used light soy and also added about 1 1/2 Tbls. mirin and DH and I loved this dish. With the vegies I put in we served it over rice and I also made Sauteed Asparagus With Sesame Seeds#347881. So easy and the dish was very tasty. Thank you! Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup tag game.

      I used a little too much soy sauce mixture on each fillet, so it was a bit salty, but delicious nonetheless. I didn't have sesame oil so I left it out, but did include some lemongrass for an extra zing. It worked great! So easy.
