Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia

Recipe: Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia

It’s sweet and spicy, salty from the soy sauce and melting in the middle. It’s certainly not the prettiest dish, but it’s oh-so-fast, oh-so-easy, and oh-so-good.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound domestically farmed tilapia fillets
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated, about 1 tablespoon
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, roughly chopped (optional)
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Scallions, chopped for garnish
  • Extra cilantro, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 475°F. Pat the fish dry, season lightly with salt and pepper, and lay in a 9×9-inch or 8×8-inch ceramic or glass baking dish.
  2. Put the garlic, grated ginger, chopped jalapeño, and cilantro in a small food processor with the white wine, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Whir until blended. (Alternately, you can finely chop or mash the aromatics in a mortar and pestle, then whisk together with the liquid ingredients.)
  3. Pour the sauce over the fish, rubbing it in a little. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily and is cooked through. It will be very moist and even a little gelatinous, still.
  4. Serve immediately over brown rice or orzo, garnished with the additional scallions and cilantro.

Any thin fish fillet would do as well; tilapia isn’t your only option.
