This is a fun dinner with an Asian twist. Baked Whole Tilapia with a golden brown crust, served on a platter with white rice and spicy Asian Spinach Salad. This recipe is also quite yummy with Trout.
Baked Whole Tilapia
Olive Oil or Reserved Bacon Fat
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Corn Flour
Tilapia is an economical fish that has a light, flaky texture. It is a somewhat small fish, so it would be wise to bake one per person. Squeeze Oranges over the fish and rub thoroughly with Olive Oil or reserved Bacon fat. Insert chopped or whole Garlic cloves and sliced Oranges into the center of the fish. Mix 1 cup Flour, 1 Cup Corn Flour, dried Parsley and Kosher Salt. Dust the Tilapia with this mixture. Bake on a greased pan in an oven preheated at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then gently turn over and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Asian Spinach Salad
3 cups thawed frozen chopped Spinach
2 teaspoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon Korean Hot Sauce
3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
Slice onion super thin and toss in with the Spinach. Combine the rest of the ingredients together with Spinach and refrigerate. This salad is served cold as a garnish to White Rice.
