Ginger Sesame Tilapia



Oven 350 F

2-3 servings

1 lb Tilapia filets, frozen or fresh


(Also delicious with Mahi Mahi)

If the fish is frozen, leave in the package and place in the sink; cover with cool water for 20-30 minutes to thaw.


1 Tbsp olive oil

Grease the bottom of a small baking dish with olive oil. Place the tilapia filets in the dish.


2 Tbsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp white wine or sherry

1 tsp grated fresh ginger root or ½ tsp ground ginger

½ tsp minced garlic

½ tsp dried onion

½ tsp sesame oil

¼ tsp cornstarch


Mix together and pour over the fish.

Make a little tent of foil to cover the dish, but allow the steam to escape.


Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Check for doneness with a fork. The inside of the filet should be opaque white. A filet that is thicker than ½” may cook for 30 minutes.


Serve with rice. Remove the fish from the pan. Add about 2 Tbsp hot water and scrape the sauce from the pan. Drizzle a tiny amount of the sauce over the rice (to your taste) and serve.


You will find the sesame oil in the Asian section of your super market.
