This recipe has been requested by so many of my followers. I finally have time to share the secret recipe . This is my quick version of how to make peppered Fish. Its a yummy low carb, keto-diet approved meal. Give this easy recipe a try, enjoy the ride back to the motherland .
2-3 Medium whole Tilapia (descaled and fins removed )
6 small cubes of knoor
2 red bell peppers
2-3 scotch bonnet
1 tbsp. of thyme
1 tbsp. of paprika
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. of ginger
1 tbsp. of brown sugar
2 tsp of salt (1 for sauce, 1 for fish)
1 red onion
thumb size fresh ginger
Pre heat oven to 400F
In a bowl combine spices, 4 knoor cubes, and sugar. Set aside
Blend the red bell pepper, 1/2 red onion, 3 garlic cloves (or 4 tbsp. of mince garlic), thumb size of ginger, tomato, and scotch bonnet. Set aside
Meanwhile, add 1/4 cup of oil in a pan with 1/2 chopped onions. Allow to fry for 1-2 minutes on medium high heat. Next add in the pepper blend with the 2 remaining knoor cube, and allow to fry for the next 10 minutes. Set Aside
Wash fish and pat dry. Begin to score the fish ( make 3 diagonal slices in the skin ). Using a brush, begin to baste the fish with oil, on both sides. Begin to sprinkle your spice blend on top of fish , making sure to insert into the score lines of the fish. Use your hand to massage spices into the fish. This may seem odd, but make love to the fish :0)
Place fish on baking rack that’s on top of a baking sheet.
Begin to bake, each side for 20 minutes. (flip over after the first 20 minutes and re-baste with oil. This helps with the cooking process ).
After baking , apply a cooking spoon of your pepper sauce on top of the fish. Spread out evenly. Broil (500 F) for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat, garnish with chopped parsley and onions. Oya Enjoy!!
