Cilantro and Ginger Tilapia

Cooking Thyme In My Cottage Kitchen

The beautiful weather is back again….our garden is holding her own…and I went to our local farmer’s market this morning.

What more could a girl want?  Why spending time, in my cottage kitchen, doing what I love to do, cooking and preserving food.

Cilantro and Ginger Baked Tilapia

Cilantro and Ginger Tilapia

The photo was taken as soon as it came out of the oven. . . cause I started taking bites before it made it to the dinner plate!

Dinner can be simple, easy and good. The recipe can be baked or saute or grilled.

Choose a thin fish fillet (a flat fish) such as flounder, sole, tilapia and trout.

Please buy sustainably responsibly farm raised tilapia.  My fish is purchased from Whole Foods.

Last night I baked the fish since it was a cool 54° last night.

Enjoy, and have a very happy day!

    Oh my goodness, that fish looks delicious – and I’m normally not much of a fish eater! Do you know if it’s possible to get wild-caught tilapia or if it’s all farm-raised? I’m glad Whole Foods at least has strict standards from where they buy their fish. (I just read about their tilapia on their web site.) Your tablescape is beautiful. :-)

    Altho I’m not a fish eater hubs would love this. Poor guy stuck with mate that can’t stand smell of cooking fish. Ugh. Sorry, got that from my Mom. My Dad used to cook fish on Saturday when I was kid then I”d have to clean it up. yuk, mess all over stove, floor, counters.
    Sure looks delicious, you must be really good cook. I could care less, the cooking gene my Mother/her family had missed me by a mile. I cook, bake but it’s not something I love to do. Having had 4 kids/hubs did lots of cooking when kids still home but it seemed like once kids left home and hubs started doing cooking I completely lost interest. Hubs is good cook. Hubs is control freak, has to watch everything, comment on how you do it so it was either walk away or konk him over head with rolling pin or a divorce. He’d actually be standing next to me trying to grab cooking utensil out of my hand, all the time directing. After a few times of that I’d had enuf. I stay out of kitchen, do cleaning up (which he also has to comment on). When I’m painting something on the kitchen island he’s watching and commenting (not nice either). Sometimes I wonder how we ever got married.
    How come you got the cooking and gardening and lots of other good things genes? Bet your hubs is sure glad you did tho. I’m very content to keep a clean home, craft, sew, decorate, but cooking, nope. Enjoy what you do too don’t you? It’s all over your facial expression. Love how your table looks by the way, very nice vignette. Happy summer days.

    I love just about all fish as long as it is not fried. I love ginger with fish but cilantro is out for me – I am one of those people who thinks it tastes like Ivory soap.
