Transcript:Baked Coriander TilapiaHello, my name is Mala Desai for About.com Food. Today I will be making coriander tilapia.
Baked Coriander Tilapia IngredientsTo make this dish, you will need:
- about 2 pounds fresh tilapia
- 1 cup fresh coriander leaves or cilantro
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons shredded, unsweetened coconut
- 1 1/2 tablespoons roasted peanuts
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground fresh ginger
- 1 large garlic clove
- 1 or 2 fresh green chili peppers
- juice of 2 limes
Blend the Coriander Tilapia IngredientsAfter washing the tilapia, add a little salt, black pepper, and lime juice and set aside.
Prepare all the other ingredients as a chutney by blending them into a smooth paste, adding a little water if necessary. This mixture can be refrigerated for about 1 to 2 days.
Marinate the TilapiaPreheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brush the baking pan with a few drops of vegetable oil.
Marinate the tilapia filet on both sides with the coriander chutney and let stand for about 10 to 15 minutes.
