Tilapia with ponzu sauce

I bought a fillet of tilapia at the grocery store, because it’s pretty much always the cheapest kind. Yusuke was skeptical that it would be too dry in comparison with our usual trout, salmon, or mackerel, but he gave it the old college try. This lovely dish resulted, and he liked it enough to buy tilapia again.

First he baked the fish in the oven, right on the rack (no oil added). He wanted to have ponzu sauce, which is a Japanese citrus-based dressing, but we didn’t have any. So he improvised with:

2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
a bit of dashi powder

Halved cherry tomatoes and chopped green onions add colour and vitamins. We sprinkled shichimi seasoning over everything for extra spice.

Mmm, fish.
