- Olive OIl Based Cooking Spray
- Tilapia, 4, 6 Oz Fillets
- Kosher Salt, ¼ Tsp
- Coconut Milk, ½ C (Light or Reduced Fat)
- Cilantro, ½ C (Reserve extra for garnish)
- Ginger, 1 Tsp (Fresh, peeled, and chopped)
- Garlic, 2 (Cloved)
- Jalapeno, ½ (Seed and Chop)
- Brown Rice, 3 C
How to Cook:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and spray baking pan with cooking spray. We recommend using a 9x13 baking dish. Season fish with salt and place directly into baking dish.
Mix together cilantro, ginger, coconut milk, jalapeno, and garlic in a blender or food processor. Use a “pulsing” speed until mixture is smooth, and pour over fillets. Now it’s time to bake the fish until it has an opaque center, this takes about fifteen minutes. Garnish fillets with cilantro and serve over rice.
