Ginger and Cilantro Tilapia

I love me some fish…and so did my 1 year old.  This was SOOO delicious.  So easy and yummy.  A definite re-make.  My little girl LOVED this so much.  I made 6 fillets and they were all eaten up!

Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia
serves 2, or 1 with lunch leftovers

2 large tilapia fillets (or similar thin white fish) – about 3/4 pound
1 jalapeno pepper (optional, I omitted this)
3 garlic cloves ( I put one clove)
1 inch grated ginger (1 tablespoon)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup white wine (I actually didn’t have white wine so I used a little rice/white vinegar and prob used an 1/8 cup)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
Scallions, chopped for garnish
Extra cilantro, to garnish

Heat the oven to 475ºF. Pat the fish dry and season lightly with salt and pepper. Place in a glass baking dish.

Chop the pepper and garlic, and grate the ginger. Put in a small food processor with the soy sauce, white wine, sesame oil, and cilantro. Whir until blended. Pour the sauce over the fish, rubbing it in a little. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily and is cooked through. It will be very moist and gelatinous, still.

Serve immediately over brown rice, garnished with scallions and cilantro.
