Baked Wrapped Tilapia
10/30/06 07:06 PM

I got this recipe from my friend Eileen. It is unbelievably delicious.

Baked Wrapped Tilapia (Eileens Favorite Fish Recipe)

Four 4-oz fillets of fresh tilapia (or other firm-fleshed whitefish)
4 large banana leaves (or unbleached parchment paper)

For the topping:
1-inch cube fresh gingerroot, finely chopped or grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
2 scallions (green part only), finely chopped
Fresh chile to taste (approx. two bird's eye chiles)
1 cup finely chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp grapeseed or safflower oil
Dash toasted sesame oil
Dash soy sauce
Dash fish sauce
4 tsp dark maple syrup
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the topping ingredients in a bowl. Place a fillet on each of the banana leaves and divide the topping evenly among them, spreading it over the top. Fold the banana leaves over to form a packet around each fillet and seal the edge of each packet with a small piece of aluminum foil, crimping it tightly. Place on a baking sheet and bake 25 to 30 minutes.

Notes: I used only 1 tbsp of the oil (canola oil works well, too) and added another tbsp of water to make sure the topping had enough liquid in it. The parchment paper instead of banana leaves works just fine.
