Tilapia Fillets in Teriyaki Sesame Sauce
(or half and half)
prepared teriyaki sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray an 8″ square baking dish with cooking spray.
Stir together rice, cabbage, mushrooms, tilapia, half and half, and 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce.
Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Carefully remove casserole from oven, and stir rice mixture together. Drizzle remaining teriyaki sauce on top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, almonds, and green onions.
Return casserole to the oven and bake an additional 15 minutes or until casserole is hot and bubbly and almonds are lightly browned. Serve immediately.
I use steam-in-bag frozen rice in this recipe, which I cook according to the package instructions. You could also use leftover rice or cook rice just for this dish.
If you can’t find the seasoned tilapia, use pouches of Chicken of the Sea salmon or tuna, and stir in 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce plus more to drizzle on top.
