Baked Tilapia in Wine and Herbs

2 fresh Tilapia fillets, approximately 8-10oz each

 

150ml (1/4pint) medium white wine

 

1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

 

4 tablespoons freshly chopped mixed herbs

 

6 salad onions, diagonally sliced

 

salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

1/2oz butter

 

1 teaspoon cornflower blended with a little cold water

 

2 tablespoons creme fraiche

 

Arrange the Tilapia side by side in a lightly oiled roasting tin or ovenproof dish.

 

Pour over the wine, then sprinkle over the chopped garlic, most of the herbs, the salad onions and seasoning to taste. Place half the butter on each fish.

 

Cover with a sheet of lightly oiled foil, seal in the fish then bake in a preheated oven 350F, for 30-35 minutes.

 

Transfer the Tilapia to a serving dish and keep warm. Pour the juices into a pan, stir in the blended cornflower and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the creme fraiche, pour over and serve immediately, sprinkled with the remaining herbs.
