A Caribbean recipe is not only healthy but it is also a bit spicy and of course, it is as delicious as the Caribbean is beautiful.

Ingredients:

4 tilapia fillets
2 tablespoon low-fat margarine
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
4 tablespoon chopped onion
1/4 cup toasted and chopped almonds
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon oregano
4 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped coriander or parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cup water
2 crushed cloves of garlic
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 lime peel

Preparation

Melt the margarine in a hot skillet on medium heat. Be careful to not let the butter turn brown.
Add green pepper and 2 tablespoons of onion. Saute the pepper and onions until the onion is transparent.
Add almonds, bread crumbs, oregano, 1 tablespoon of fresh limejuice, coriander, and salt. Mix everything well.

Spoon the filling down the center of the tilapia fillets. Roll up both the fillets and secure them with toothpicks.

Take a shallow baking pan. Use the 2 table spoons of onion, water, garlic, bay leaf, red pepper, and 3 tablespoons of lime juice.

Add the 2 fillets and bake at 400 F in the oven for 30-35 minutes with occasional basting until the fillets flake easily.
