    Baked Whole Tilapia




    My new favorite grocery store had a sale on whole, cleaned, tilapia the other day so I bought a couple of them.
    This is very simple, very basic recipe, and a way of cooking fish that truly allows the fish to be "the star", so to speak. No fancy sauces here. Despite this photo the fish turned out quite nicely... with a hint of crispiness on the outside. Hope you will enjoy.

    Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F
    Rinse the tilapia under cold water and pat very dry.
    Take a sharp knife and slice 3 deep slits on each side of the fish.
    Rub about 1 tablespoonful of olive or vegetable oil all over the fish.

    Place several thin slices of fresh ginger and sliced garlic into the slits on both sides. Place several slices of fresh lemon into the cavity.
    Put the tilapia on a foil-lined baking sheet.
    Bake for 30 minutes.

    Eat and enjoy! Bon Appetit.

    Sounds very simple, flavorful, and low sodium. I can usually only get whole snapper or porgy. This method would work just fine with either methinks!
