Tittilating Tilapia

Walnut encrusted fresh tilapia baked “en papillote” with sliced navel orange, shallots, coconut milk and… (wait for it) blueberries. A simple side of red quinoa and a salad of mixed greens, avocado and Persian cucumber accompany this crazy dish.

Interesting to note: back east in Montreal Persian cucumbers are called “Lebanese” and in Toronto, apparently “Israeli”. Either way, they are cute and pack a delicious crunch.

Pre-oven prep: package everything nicely together, seal in aluminum foil and bake at 425 F for about 18 minutes or until done.Ingredients:

  • sliced french shallots
  • navel orange slices
  • blueberries
  • walnut pieces
  • fresh chives
  • dash of coconut milk
  • sea salt
  • olive oil

Things I might have changed with this dish: perhaps an extra tang of grated fresh ginger might have brought this together a little more.
