Easy to make - the ingredients have been culled from a number of different recipes to create a new dish. The completed dish makes a complete meal.
- 2 tilapia fillets, rinsed
- 3 small red potatoes, diced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1⁄2 red onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1⁄2 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon minced ginger
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine olive oil, sesame oil, lime juice, pepper flakes, salt and ginger.
- Place potatoes, pepper, and onion in a pyrex-type dish. The dish should be just long enough to fit both fillets and about 2 inches deep.
- Place the vegetables in the baking dish and toss with the oil-spice sauce.
- Bake for 25 minutes, stirring once.
- Remove from oven and push the vegetables to one side of the cooking dish. Place first fillet in dish and cover with the vegetables. Push vegetables aside to place other fillet in dish and cover it with the remaining vegetables.
- Bake for another 20 minutes or until tilapia is thoroughly cooked. It should flake and still be very moist.
This is a nice oven recipe for 2. The potatoes were reduced to 2 smallish to medium potatoes. If I were to make this again, I would cut back on the red pepper flakes as well as the olive oil. Made for *PAC Fall 2009*
Delicious dish! The fish turn out tender, moist, and flavorful! The combination of ginger, line, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes created a very fresh and 'bright' taste.
The best tilapia I've ever had. This recipe keeps it succulent and flavorful--really delicious.
