This simple dish stands out from the ordinary because of the subtle tartness of the tamarind and the heat of the pepper.

Directions

  1. Rinse tilapia fillets and dry with paper towels. Dissolve tamarind paste in hot water in a bowl; stir ginger, garlic, salt, black pepper, coriander, turmeric, and cumin into tamarind mixture to make a paste. Rub paste over fish and let stand 15 minutes to absorb flavors (or longer in refrigerator if desired).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook fish with tamarind paste in the hot oil until the flesh is opaque and flaky, about 4 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second side. Drizzle with lemon juice.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I don't like to give a bad review but this was not good. I followed the recipe exactly and the tilapia had a weird, bitter taste. My husband finished his portion but I threw mine away. I've used all the spices and seasonings before but the combination just didn't work for us. Sorry for the 1 star review.
