Tilapia with Ginger-Marinated Cucumbers
cup cider vinegar
cup plus 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
teaspoons grated fresh ginger
medium cucumbers, sliced (about 3-1/2 cups)
Nonstick cooking spray
4 ounces tilapia fillets, 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick
6 ounce carton plain yogurt
tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh mint
Strips of lemon peel and lemon wedges, optional
- Preheat broiler. In a medium bowl stir together the vinegar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, ginger, and salt until sugar dissolves. Remove 1/4 cup of the mixture. Add cucumbers and half of the mint to remaining mixture; toss to coat and set aside.
- Lightly coat the rack of an unheated broiler pan with cooking spray; add tilapia. Brush the 1/4 cup vinegar mixture over the fish. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
- Meanwhile, in another small bowl combine yogurt, remaining mint, and 1 teaspoon brown sugar.
- Use a slotted spoon to place cucumbers onto serving plates. Top with fish and yogurt mixture. Sprinkle with strips of lemon peel and cracked peppercorns. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
