Champagne Cajun Tilapia
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min.
Very easy recipe that was delicious. We made it with rockfish (striped bass) and it came out perfectly moist and yummy. The marinade smelled so good, I wanted to drink it!
I had to make my own marinade from scratch cuz my store was out of champagne dressing. I used 1/4 C white wine vinegar, 1/2 t garlic powder, 2 T Dijon mustard, 2 T honey, 2 T lemon juice, 2 dashes of hot sauce, 1/2 t salt, 1/2 t pepper, and 1/4 C EVOO, then I added the all the other marinade ingredients including the lemon juice. It was a very tasty and simple dish!
I have to admit - I was skeptical. The marinade ingredients seemed random, like they didn't really go together. But I had all of them on hand so thought I'd give it a try. My husband and I LOVED it. So much flavor, and yet perfect for a delicate fish. Will make again and again!
Very simple and delicious. Used Orange Roughy since that's what I had and is our favorite. One of the best fish recipes I've tried.
