Ingredients

  • 1 tilapia

For the marinade:

  • ½ a small piece of ginger;
  • olive oil (can be replaced by any vegetable);
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary or ½ teaspoon dried;
  • 3 cloves of garlic;
  • 2 tablespoons cumin;
  • ½ onion;
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper;
  • 1 teaspoon lemon or lime juice;

For the sauce

  • 1 Bulgarian pepper;
  • 1 small chili;
  • ½ onion;
  • ½ small piece of ginger
  • 3 bouillon cubes;
  • 3 cloves of garlic;
  • salt to taste.

Recipe

Gut tilapia, rinse it and remove the scales. Make deep cuts across the fish from both sides. This will help the marinade to better feed her.

Mix two tablespoons of olive or other vegetable oil with rosemary, cumin and cayenne pepper. Add chopped garlic, half a chopped onion and a teaspoon of lemon or lime juice. Grate some ginger on a fine grater and add to the marinade. Mix all ingredients well.

Use a silicone brush to coat the fish with marinade. If it is not at hand, use a simple spoon. Make sure the marinade is in the cuts. Grease the fish, not only outside, but inside. Leave to pickle.

For the sauce, mix the garlic, grated ginger, finely chopped bell pepper and chili pepper. Mix everything in a blender until smooth.

Fry the onions in a pan until golden brown, add salt and bouillon cubes. Cook on low heat for 15 minutes. Mix with pepper mass.

Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Place tilapia on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. After that, grease the cuts. Send to the oven for another 30-40 minutes. Turn it around every 10-15 minutes. It should have a golden crust on both sides.

Serve with sauce and favorite vegetables. You can use rice or potatoes as a side dish.
