Every week during Lent we will be publishing a meatless recipe to help with your Lenten abstinence.
Recipe by Jeff Young
Tilapia is called St. Peter’s Fish because it hails from the Sea of Galilee. When the gospels tell of Peter and Andrew, James and John fishing, tilapia was typically the fish they caught. When, after the Resurrection, the Gospel of John records Jesus cooking fish for breakfast for the apostles on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, it was the savory aroma of tilapia cooking that rose from the flames.
Today I want to share with you here my recipe for Spicy Baked Tilapia (the same recipe that you can find in my book Around the Table with The Catholic Foodie: Middle Eastern Cuisine).
