Recipe by Bridget Leigh
This recipe was published in the food section of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Unfortunately, I can't give proper credit because after trying the recipe once, it went into our family favorites cookbook and I tossed the clipping. My kids all love it, and every guest who has tried it has asked me for the recipe. Note: The recipe calls for sesame sticks, which are a snack food, found in most grocery stores, health food stores and nut specialty shops. Please don't try using sesame seeds instead, as I suspect one reviewer has done, or your results may not be as wonderful. :o)

I made this for my husband, and he ate all three pieces of tilapia. He really liked the flavors (I added ginger and left off the sesame sticks because I couldn't find them) and thought it still felt light and healthy, but not too boring. I will definitely make this again for him, and I'll try to find the sesame sticks for next time!
