Tilapia with Cilantro and Ginger

We LOVED this.

4-6 tilapia fillets (about 2 pounds)
1 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
4 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons grated ginger (from about a 2-inch piece that has been peeled)
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2/3 cup chopped cilantro
Chopped green onions for garnish
Extra cilantro for garnish

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Pat the tilapia fillets dry and season lightly with salt and pepper on both sides. Place the fish in a glass or ceramic baking dish.

Place the jalapenos, garlic, ginger, soy sauce,stock, sesame oil and cilantro in a blender or food processor. Pulse or process until very well blended. Pour the sauce over the fish. Bake for 8-12 minutes until the fish flakes easily and is cooked through. Serve immediately.
