Baked Tilapia for desi taste buds

Why should I eat fish? It is a good source of lean protein and contains omega 3 fatty acids – good for the heart!

What is the recommendation? Eat 2 servings of variety of fish/weektalapia 2

What do you need for this recipe?

  • 5 Tilapia pieces (~4 oz piece)
  • 2 tsp Red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp Tumeric powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Garlic paste

Use the lemon juice to mix the seasonings. Use more if the lemon is not juicy enough to make a seasoning paste. Pat dry the defrosted tilapia. Rub the seasoning on the fish.

Preheat the oven to 350. Place fish on baking tray lined with aluminum foil and ligtly sprayed with oil (or it will stick to the pan)

Bake for 25-30 minutes or as needed.

Next time I will try this recipe with other type of fish.
