This will surely be a weeknight staple. Extremely quick and easy and equally as tasty. Serve over some fragrant jasmine rice and you’re done. Win! Another for the ‘favorite’ file.

2 servings / 5 ww pts+

What I used:

  • 2 large tilapia filets (1 lb)
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1 jalapeno, de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 cup vermouth (or white wine – but I always have vermouth in the cabinet)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 scallion, sliced thinly on a bias

What I did:

  1. Preheat oven to 475. Pat the fish dry and place in a glass baking dish large enough so that the fish do not overlap. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine the garlic, cilantro, ginger, and jalapeno in a food processor along with the wine, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Whiz until well blended.
  3. Pour the sauce over the fish and roast in the oven for 10 minutes.  Done.
