Thai Style Fish


The cookbook said I’d be hooked on this fish dish–it was so right! I couldn’t stop talking about it for days after I made it. The recipe calls for sea bass, but, as per usual, I used tilapia because other fish options are just too expensive. This dish is super healthy and fresh with lots of protein and barely any oil. It came out flakey and flavorful, with enough seasoning for those who like flavorful food, but also no overpowering flavors that turned off any timid eaters.

1 tsp. (toasted) sesame oil

Spray a foil-lined baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place fish on baking sheet.

Mince green onions, basil, ginger, and garlic. Rub mixture on both sides of the fish. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Brush with sesame oil.

Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
