Moroccan Tilapia


4 fillets of Tilapia (u can cut each one lengthwise to 2 smaller pieces)
1 small onion cut to stripes
1 ripe tomato, diced
1-2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh cilantro
1 small red pepper cut to stripes
1 small carrot thinly sliced
1 Idaho potato peeled and very thinly sliced
1/2 cup canned or cooked chick peas

Ingredients for Sauce:

1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 Tbs paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbs salt (use separately)


Preheat oven to 550. Place fish in bottom of pan. Prepare all vegetables and spread on top of the fish, sprinkle with 1 Tbs salt. Mix all sauce ingredients in a cup and evenly pour on fish and veg, mix with hands so that spices blend well into fish and vegetables. Cover and bake for 15-20 minutes (if pieces of fish are thin 15 min will do).

*This recipe works the best with Salmon. If that’s what you choose, bake for at least 20 minutes and not more than 25.
