Savor Spiced Baked Fish

If you’re eating more fish and less red meat, you’re doing good things for your health — especially if you’re not frying your fish. This week’s Health-e-Recipe for Moroccan Baked Tilapia gives you an easy, low-fat and low-cost fish dish.

Tilapia does not have as much omega-3 fat as salmon or tuna, but it is a protein source that is very low in calories and fat. Studies on populations that eat a Mediterranean Diet show that eating fish frequently – along with plenty of cancer-fighting vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans – is a health-protective way to eat.

And Morocco is a Mediterranean country. Its cuisine features sweet-hot spices – in this recipe, sweet paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper mixed with dusky cumin. Serve this fish dish with our recipe for Marinated Peppers and Zucchini with Almonds, steamed spinach and a whole grain.

  1. Made this today. Added one extra to it: Rolled the fish in panko crumbs before baking. It was DELICIOUS! Will definitely make it again! PS: Panko is a Japanese bread crumb that is crunchier than regular crumbs. You can find it in any supermarket, either on the baking or ethnic food aisle.

  2. Thank you for sharing this healthy recipe. The lineage of my friend shows that they are prone of goiter. What I know about fish is that it contains an amount of iodine which can prevent goiter. That’s why, I keep on searching for fish recipes not only at but also here and other cooking sites.
