Tilapia With Ginger Glaze
Adapted from For Cod and Country by Barton Seaver (Sterling Epicure, 2011).4 serving(s)
2 tablespoons regular or low-fat mayonnaise (do not use nonfat)
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
Freshly squeezed juice from 1 lemon (3 to 4 tablespoons)
1-inch piece peeled ginger root, finely grated
2 medium cloves garlic, finely grated
3 or 4 scallions, trimmed and cut crosswise into thin slices
4 5-ounce tilapia fillets
1. Position the top oven rack 4 to 6 inches from the broiling element; preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup).
2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, and scallions in a medium bowl.
3. Add the tilapia fillets; toss gently to coat. Place the fillets on the baking sheet, skin sides down, and spoon any remaining glaze over them. Broil for about 6 minutes, until the fish is just cooked through and the glaze is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
