Fish Recipe #3

So, I'm still plugging away at trying to make myself like fish.  I think I have a winner on my hands with this one!  I even brought the leftovers with me to work.  That's saying something, my friends!  It didn't taste fishy at all and I loved the sauce.  Even though I really like this recipe, I'm still going to try out some more.  Who knows?  I might become a fish lover after all!

Broiled Tilapia with Thai Coconut-Curry Sauce

from Cooking Light

  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

  • 2 teaspoons red curry paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 (14-ounce) can light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 cups hot cooked basmati rice (I used brown rice)
  • 4 lime wedges
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ginger and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add pepper and onions; cook 1 minute. Stir in curry powder, curry paste, and cumin; cook 1 minute. Add soy sauce, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and coconut milk; bring to a simmer (do not boil). Remove from heat; stir in cilantro.
