Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Chop 1/4 of the basil leaves. Mix chopped basil, thyme, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Rub spice mixture on tilapia fillets and place in an airtight container. Marinate for 2 hours at room temperature.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking dish with aluminum foil and grease with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  • Place tilapia fillets into prepared baking dish, shaking off excess seasoning. Sprinkle cherry tomatoes, shallot, and remaining unchopped basil leaves on top. Drizzle 1/2 the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar over the fish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, until fish is starting to flake.

  • Meanwhile, combine remaining lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil mixture until it has the thick consistency of molasses, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Broil fish until tomatoes are charred, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and discard liquid. Pour balsamic reduction on top of fish.

Cooked at 425 for 20 minutes plus about 3 minutes broiling. Be sure to make the reduction right before serving; I set mine aside and it gunked up at the bottom of the pan and was unusable. Read More
