Living in the US, finding fish from the sea is quite difficult if not expensive. The most affordable for me is tilapia which is a pond fish grown back home in fisheries close to the beach. The kind they sell here are on the larger scale compared to what I was used to so the usual way we cook them back home is not the ideal way to go. However, I found that baking them in a pouch of foil enhances the flavor of the fish and is I think the best way to go about cooking this fish.
Tilipia, cleaned and scaled
salt and pepper
1. Slice the fish on a diagonal on both sides without cutting through. Set
aside. Prepare equal amounts of tomato and onion and stuff the cavity
of the fish.
2. Season with salt and pepper and place seasoned fish on a sheet of foil.
Drizzle olive oil over the fish and seal.
3. Bake at 350°F for an hour. Serve while still in the foil.
