Coconut Milk and Citrus Tilapia With Fennel Tea Black Rice

Ingredients

3 pieces fillets of tilapia, sliced into two
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ginger oil (or 1 inch of ginger, grated or just cut in slices if you can’t get <
3 tablespoons of cilantro, roughly cut
2 cups of panko crumbs
3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon grated ginger
Salt and pepper to taste
add more cayenne flakes or chile powder for a spicier crust

Preparation

1
Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a shallow dish or bowl. Make sure it is big enough to contain all the marinade and the submerged fish.
2
Submerge the fish, making sure everything if covered. If the marinade does not completely cover the fish, feel free to add a little water.
3
Let marinade in the refrigerator for about 1 hour. Since the marinade has a good amount of citrus juice, leaving the fish to long make breakdown the meat or slightly cook the fish. So, be careful not to forget about it.
4
Preheat the oven to 400°F
5
In a small bowl, mix the panko, cilantro, ginger, and zest. I prefer to bread my fish by spreading the mixture on a plate, but this could also be done in a bag.
6
Cover both sides of the tilapia with the panko mixture and then place on a metal cooking pan that is covered with aluminum foil (for easier clean-up). Repeat for all the pieces of fish.
7
Cook the fish for about 10-15 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish) or until flaky.
8
When finished cooking, let rest for 5 minutes. Then, serve with arugula salad and fennel tea black rice.

 



About

This recipe combines marinating the fish in coconut milk and citrus juice with baking in a panko and zest crust to give the fish a bright and fresh taste. Marinade in the coconut milk is going to help get rid of any fishiness in the tilapia and will also give a little sweetness and fat. Although I used tilapia in this recipe, it also works will salmon and catfish.

I also like to serve this with Fennel Tea Black Rice.
