Sweet Baked Tilapia

Sweet Baked Tilapia

Tilapia is my favorite fish, next to the bangus.During a visit to the Legaspi Sunday Market, I chanced upon the stall of Fishda, a start-up company which supplies one of the top barbecue restaurants on my list, Ineng's BBQ. Fishda sells and distributes ready-to-cook tilapia fillets. I immediately grabbed some in order to cook my usual fried tilapia with tomatoes in a different way. It was good that Fishda distributed as well recipe leaflets and I wasted no time doing my own version of the Sweet Baked Tilapia.

This one was so easy to prepare. I just followed the instructions, popped the tilapia in the turbo oven and after a few minutes, out came a dish that's redolent of fish goodness. Long live tilapia!

Sweet Baked Tilapia

4 large tilapia fillets
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. each basil and thyme
1 tbsp. each lemon juice & melted butter
2 tsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 450F. Evenly distribute olive oil in the bottom of baking dish and place fillets in it. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the fillets. Bake for 7 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork.
