Tilapia in Scallion and Ginger Sauce

January 11, 2011

This tilapia was served with a steamed rice/vegetable medley and home-style greens beans with bacon and potatoes. For this recipe you can easily substitute the tilapia with orange roughy, cod, sole, or flounder.

  • 1/3 cup dry sherry or vermouth
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • red pepper flakes (optional; to taste)
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Mix the sherry or vermouth, soy sauce, sesame oil, onion, ginger, and garlic in a small bowl.  Place the fish fillets in a casserole dish.  Drizzle the marinade over the fish and bake for 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.

Garnish as desired… I prefer to take some jalepeños and chop them up for some added “heat”.
