Baked Tilapia in Foil
Serve with favorite rice pilaf.

Servings: 4

• 1-inch cube fresh gingerroot, finely chopped or grated
• 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped or grated
• 2 green onions (green part only), finely chopped
• Chopped jalapeno to taste (I use about 1 - 2 teaspoons)
• 1 cup finely chopped cilantro
• 2 tablespoons safflower oil
• Dash of toasted sesame oil
• Dash of light soy sauce
• 4 teaspoons dark maple syrup
• 4 - 4 ounce fresh tilapia fillets


Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine all topping ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place a fillet on a large square of foil and divide topping evenly among fillets, spreading it over the top. Fold foil to form packets, crimping it tightly. Place on a baking sheet and bake 25 to 30 minutes.
