Sound this recipe on Pinterest – Baked Costa Rican-Style Tilapia with Pineapple, Black Beans & Rice and I almost followed the recipe.. I am getting better at that!
LOVE this Lime Olive Oil (ok.. not in the recipe but seemed appropriate) and our favorite orange mango juice v. just orange juice
Marinade for the tilapia: Lime olive oil, orange mango juice, lime juice, garlic, and fresh cilantro (and no sugar because I was using bottled juice)
Let the fish marinate while the rice cooked (about 20 minutes)
For the rice: store-made hot Pico de Gallo and chunks of fresh pineapple
Cooked long-grain white rice mixed with the pico de gallo, chopped pineapple, and drained & rinsed black beans…
Topped with the marinated tilapia and then drizzled the marinade over the fish and rice
Topped with slices of lime
Baked at 400-degree for approximately 25-30 minutes until the fish flakes
Plated with some extra pineapple on the side??? there was a sprinkling of fresh cilantro too (missed that picture) – This was a lovely, light, fresh dinner – totally easy to do for two but, I’m sure, also easy to do for more??? We are thinking it might be good for a Sunday Roast, especially on a hot summer day.
