We have been on a little getaway to the beach this week. The seafood is always a great treat but I have to admit that I am missing one of my own recipes for tilapia. When we get back home, it will be the first thing on my list to eat!
Because I love this dish so much I thought I would share it with you. Maybe you’ll have a chance to enjoy it!
Since we are only cooking for two people, here’s the recipe for two fillets of fish, but of course you can double (or triple) it if you like!
Easy Ginger Coconut Tilapia
Two 6 oz fillets of tilapia (or your favorite white fish)
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1-2 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
1/2 lime, juiced
Salt and pepper
1. In a small bowl, grate the garlic clove and fresh ginger and add the coconut oil and lime juice.
2 Dry the fish with a paper towel and lay side-by-side on a piece of aluminum foil. Lightly salt and pepper.
3. Pour the lime juice and coconut oil mixture over the fish and top it with the almonds. Wrap the foil around the fish, making an enclosed pouch. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until the fish is flaky.
And that’s it!
I currently have a thing for coconut oil so we often serve this fish with a rice dish made of cooked rice (brown or white), a few tablespoons of coconut oil, a few sliced almonds and some craisans. Add some asparagus or fresh squash or your favorite vegetable and you’re all set for dinner!
