Sometimes on a Sunday, the Baker or the Baker’s sister will do some batch cooking for the week so that she doesn’t have to cook every night. Tonight proved to be one of those nights and because she had just been in San Diego (blogs to come…), she could imagine nothing better than FISH. So, the Baker went to the store and bought some tilapia because it’s a fish her parents grew up making for her, so she knows she likes it.
When it came time to prep, she looked to the internet to provide inspiration. This came in the form of a blackened spice-rubbed recipe that involved a simple action of making the spice mix, rubbing it on each side of the fish. Cooking the fish in the oven at 400 degrees for 7 minutes on one side, flipping it over, then cooking it for 7 minutes on the other side. The recipe recommended roasting zucchini with it, but the Baker felt more partial to onion (plus she had an onion and had not purchased a zucchini).
So she created a spice mix of: Moroccan paprika, salt, black pepper, red pepper, cumin, and oregano. She sliced the onions and put a piece of parchment paper down on the pan. The whole dish took 30 minutes from start to end.
She served the fish and onion on a bed of kale. It was DELICIOUS!
