rsz_tilapiaTilapia is a lean white fish with a mild taste.  It’s widely available, inexpensive and fast and easy to prepare.  This recipe is no exception.  It’s perfect for those days when you don’t feel like cooking a more elaborate meal.  This recipe serves two, but can easily be doubled to serve four.  Enjoy!

2 tilapia fillets (100 g/   each)

2 green onions, sliced (including green part)

2 tsp (10 mL)  ginger, grated or finely minced

¼ tsp (1 mL) freshly grated black pepper

1 tsp (5 mL) light soy sauce

Directions:

  1.  Place tilapia fillets in steamer basket over boiling water.  Sprinkle sliced onion, minced ginger and freshly ground pepper over the tops of each fillet.
