Baked Tilapia Fish Fillets
We are a family who prefer white fish meat. Salmon and Tuna which have the pink-hued meat are not to our liking even though they are high in Omega-3 fatty acids especially salmon. I guess we are not used to it as majority of the fishes we consumed in Asia are white meat fishes. Among all the frozen fish fillets sold here we really like the texture of Tilapia fish. It is soft and smooth and go well with steaming, baking, deep-frying, pan-frying or in soup (just add it in last), because of that it is the best frozen fish fillet to have in my freezer. Strangely enough, this fish is considered cheap in Asia but not here. I have seen the value of this fish increase over time, and it is about $4-$5/lb now. Anyway, sharing with you my easy no cleaning fish dish with you.
3 frozen Tilapia fish fillets, defroze overnight in the refrigerator
Old Bay Seasonings
Kosher salt/ table salt
Canola oil spray or any oil spray you have
1. Preheat oven to 400'F. Wrap a cookie sheet or baking pan with aluminum foil.
2. Place the fish fillets on the aluminum foil. Spray them with canola oil spray, I only do it on the top side.
3. Sprinkle the top side with old bay seasonings, black pepper and a little salt.
4. Place the baking pan on the upper level and bake for 10 minutes. Take it out and serve with the tray (to avoid washing additional plate), after you are done, just throw away the aluminum foil, easy and no washing needed! I served mine on a plate for picture taking purpose only, normally I served it on the tray itself. ;o)
