Of any kind.
But I wanted to give it a try and I have to say Tilapia has no taste, so I liked it. I decided to make it at home instead of substituting it with chicken. It was a nice treat for my man who loves fish, but rarely gets to eat it at home. Even though I like it, my disdain for fish is so deep, that I still struggle a little with each bite, but I think I will get better.
This dish came together very quickly when the food prep was done the night before.
hot cooked basmati rice
tilapia fillets (I cooked 2)
1 tsp dark sesame oil
2 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves
1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped green onion
1 tsp curry powder
2 tsp red curry paste
1/2 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1 (14oz) coconut milk
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1. Heat 1/2 tsp of sesame oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add ginger and garlic, cook for 1 minute.
2. Add peppers and onions, cook for 1 minute.
3. Stir in curry powder, paste and cumin, cook for 1 minute.
4. Add soy sauce, sugar, 1/4 tsp of salt and coconut milk, bring to a simmer (not boil). **the recipe did not say how long to simmer it, so I didn't for very long, but next time I will simmer it for longer to reduce the sauce and thicken it up more**
5. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
6. Brush fish with 1/2 tsp of sesame oil, sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt. Place fish on baking sheet covered with cooking spray. Broil for 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork **we broiled it for 12 minutes I think**
7. Serve fish with sauce, rice and lime wedges.
