Ginger Tilapia

Ingredients:

  • 2 - 3 oz. tilapia fillets

  • 1 bottle of Ginger Dressing

  • 1 sweet onion (sliced)

  • 1 portobello mushroom (sliced)

  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper (sliced)

  • 1 bunch asparagus (trimmed)

Marinate the tilapia in Ginger Dressing for at least 30 minutes (or up to 3 hours). Preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake in the oven until the fish flakes easily (about 15-20 minutes) or grill the tilapia until flaky.

While the fish is cooking, grill your sweet onion, portobello, bell peppers, and asparagus in the same pan or skewer them for the grill.

Serve with a refrigerated tartar sauce if desired. Just incredibly good - even if you don't like fish!!!
