I always seem to have a stock of tilapia in my freezer, and am therefore always looking for new ways to prepare it. Don't get me wrong, our usual Broiled Tilapia Parmesan is delicious and I would eat it all the time, but its nice to change it up every so often too :)
This simple Asian-style marinade was very simple but pretty yummy, and it worked great on the tilapia. Plus I love a dinner that can be ready in less than 15 minutes! I think the sauce would be fantastic on salmon too. We enjoyed this with some Quinoa Fried "Rice" for a light yet flavorful meal.

2-3 lbs. tilapia (about 3-4 pieces)
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. lime juice
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. sake
1 Tbsp. finely grated ginger
1 Tbsp. finely chopped scallions
1 Tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
1. Preheat oven to 450. Line a broiling pan or cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place tilapia on pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Drizzle about 1 Tbsp. sauce on top of each fish fillet; reserve remaining sauce. Bake 8-10 minutes or until fish is opaque and cooked through. Drizzle with reserved sauce.
