So, I've been really craving some fish lately, so after another trip tot he local Farmers market, me and dad picked out a few fresh tilapias. I don't really know much about fish, to be honest, so I picked that one because I know it has large bones. Easier to pick.
I decided to bake them whole, after stuffing them with some veggies.
I diced the onion, sliced the garlic and chopped the celery. The oregano and parsley I just washed and left whole. Then I washed the fish, and checked to make sure it was already gutted. It was.Dry it with towel - inside and out and rub in a bit of olive oil.
Yeah, there is a LOT of raw fish handling, which is kind of a perk for me.
Stuffed the chunks of veggies first, then stuffed it as much as I could with herbs.
Sliced lemon slices to 1/4 thickness and placed on top. I also squirted some lemon juice inside, and peppered.
I lined the bottom with parchment paper, because the fish will stick, and aluminum might add a strange teaste due to acid int he lemon juice. Don't worry, it won't burn.
I baked the fish at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes (until the top side of it was browning and drying).
Although I forgot to add salt tot he fish, it came out super soft and flaky. This is a great recipe if you want to have a healthy light meal. It has a nice thick filet, but it also has some bones, which are easy to remove. Be careful nonetheless.
