Introduction: Oven Roasted Asian Tilapia

Serves 5 to 6 people

Step 1: Ingredients

2-3 lbs tilapia fillets (about 6-8 pieces)
5 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon sake
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1 tablespoon finely grated garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped scallions
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
Thinly sliced scallion and cilantro sprigs for garnish
Salt and pepper

Step 2: Method

Move oven rack to the top, as close to the heating element as possible. Preheat oven to 500.  Line a broiling pan or flat cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, vegetable oil, sake, ginger, garlic, scallions, cilantro.  Set aside.

Step 3:

Place fillets in a single layer on cookie sheet.  Sprinkle each piece with a dash of salt and pepper.  Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of sauce on each fillets, distributing evenly.  Reserve remaining sauce to drizzle on top of fish later.  Cook in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until fish is opaque and slightly firm to the touch.

Drizzle with more of the sauce mixture and then garnish with scallions and cilantro.  Serve with hot rice.
