The Shedd Aquarium is asking for the public's help in preserving overfished types of fish. The Shedd recommends that consumers buy or order several non-endangered types of fish, among them this tilapia, available in many restaurants and grocery stores.
Here's one recommended recipe:
4 tilapia fillets, 6 oz. each
1 cup white onion, julienned
1 cup poblano chili pepper, julienned
3/4 cup red bell pepper, julienned
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
4 tsp. jerk seasoning
4 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
4 orange slices, unpeeled
Saute onion, peppers and garlic in oil and butter until tender; reserve.
Arrange each fillet on a square of aluminum foil.
Season each fillet with 1 tsp. jerk seasoning and cover with 1/2 cup onion mixture and 1 tbsp. cilantro.
Top with one orange slice.
Wrap foil around fillet and seal like a pouch.
Bake packets at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
Open foil packets carefully and transfer fillet to serving plate.
Note: Packets can be prepared ahead and refrigerated up to 4 hours before cooking.
