Hello and happy Saturday! I have a flavorful and easy seafood recipe to share with y’all. It seriously could not be easier and could definitely be adapted to other types of fish. I’m already excited to try it with mahi mahi!
First thing you’ll want to do is give your tilapia fillets a quick marinade in some teriyaki sauce. I used store bought, but if you’re totally awesome and have the time, feel free to make your own. (I forgot to take a picture of this step, whoops!)
After 1-3 hours, remove the fillets and bake them for about 20 minutes at 425°. Because I only cook for my husband and I, I tend to use the toaster oven when I can. I love that it doesn’t heat up the house!
In other (adorable) news, our week over here has been quite eventful…we adopted a kitty! She was more than willing to help out in the kitchen and keep me company.
And now for the star of the show, the sriracha mayo.
All you need to do is combine mayonnaise, sriracha, and a pinch of garlic powder and give it a good mix. So simple, but SO delicious.
When your fillets are done baking, smother (yes, smother) them in this sauce. I may have also scraped the remaining sauce from edges of the bowl so I could dip my broccoli in it.
2 Tilapia fillets
1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce
1 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2-1 tbsp sriracha
1/4 tbsp garlic powder
Sesame seeds (optional garnish)
1. Place two tilapia fillets in a shallow bowl and cover with teriyaki sauce. Refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
2. Preheat your oven to 425° F.
3. Remove your fillets from the marinade and place them in a foil lined shallow baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with fork.
4. Combine mayonnaise, sriracha, and garlic powder in a small bowl. You may want to add small amounts of sriracha in increments and taste to achieve your desired level of heat.
5. Mix thoroughly.
6. When tilapia is cooked through, remove from oven and top with sauce.
7. Top with sesame seeds if desired, and dig in!
