Ingredients

  • 1

    pound domestically farmed tilapia fillets

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 3

    garlic cloves, peeled and smashed

  • 1

    inch fresh ginger, grated, about 1 tablespoon

  • 1

    jalapeño pepper, roughly chopped (optional)

  • 1/3

    cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves

  • 1/4

    cup white wine

  • 2

    tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1

    teaspoon sesame oil

  • Scallions, chopped for garnish

  • Extra cilantro, to garnish

Directions

Heat the oven to 475°F. Pat the fish dry, season lightly with salt and pepper, and lay in a 9x9-inch or 8x8-inch ceramic or glass baking dish. Put the garlic, grated ginger, chopped jalapeño, and cilantro in a small food processor with the white wine, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Whir until blended. (Alternately, you can finely chop or mash the aromatics in a mortar and pestle, then whisk together with the liquid ingredients.) Pour the sauce over the fish, rubbing it in a little. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily and is cooked through. It will be very moist and even a little gelatinous, still. Serve immediately over brown rice or orzo, garnished with the additional scallions and cilantro.
