Tilapia Teriyaki

I used to not like tilapia, but since I am desperate for fish (my fish consumption has decreased by 80% in the past 2 years), I have learned to accept and love this readily-available and easy to find fleshy white fish.

This recipe is simple, fast and delicious. And suited for people who likes onions (really? I couldn't even tell.) I felt like Claire Robinson doing her 5-Ingredient Fix show as I was preparing this dish as it only has a few ingredients!

What you need:

2 medium-sized tilapia fillets
1 large Vidalia Onion, sliced finely
2 to 4 tablespoons Teriyaki Sauce
4 cloves of garlic, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
A dash of Old Bay Seasoning (optional)

What to do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the garlic and onion for about 3 minutes, or until the onions are translucent and soft. Remove from heat and set aside.

Meanwhile, season the tilapia fillets with Old Bay. Place them in a non-stick baking dish and pour the teriyaki sauce on top of them. Add the sauteed garlic and onion in the baking dish as well. Stick it in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it reaches your desired doneness.

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. Old Bay Seasoning has a very strong taste so go light on it.
2. Don't like Old Bay? Use salt and pepper instead.
3. Use some non-stick spray on your baking dish if it is not non-stick.
4. Increase or decrease the amount of teriyaki sauce to suit your taste.
