Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking pan.
  2. Wrap each tilapia fillet around 3 spears of asparagus and secure with wooden toothpicks. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then place in prepared baking pan. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the foil and sprinkle the chopped green onion over the fish. Return the pan, uncovered, to the oven to bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  4. While the fish is baking, heat the wine in a small saucepan over medium heat. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and lemon juice and whisk until there are no visible clumps. Add the cornstarch mixture to the white wine, cooking and stirring to prevent lumps. Add the dried basil and black pepper and continue to cook for 2 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
  5. To serve, remove the toothpicks from the tilapia fillets and spoon sauce over top.

I made this last night for my family. The talapia and asparagus was very good but my suggestion for the sauce would be to allow your guests to put the sauce on themselves. It has a very strong flavor and very little is needed for the fish. Enjoy, Rosanne

I was very disappointed in this recipe. I could have made something better with my tilapia. the asparagus didn't get done in the length of time it took for the fish to cook, so was very crunchy, and i just didn't like how intense the flavor of the sauce was. sorry!

Definite potential...sauce was too strong so I didn't use it..so in fear of dry fish, I opened the oven, took out the pan of fish and asparagus and added a little olive oil, some garlic powder and a little more salt/pepper...and topped off with fresh greated parmasean cheese. put back in the oven and it came out great! Really filling!!

I made this last night. Made a real nice meal, without being heavy. I served it with wild rice as a side. Flavor was great. I'm going to try some other ways of using both ingredients and different flavors.

I would actually only give this recipe 3.5 stars. I didn't have asparagus but I really wanted to try the sauce, which turned out pretty good under these conditions: Use a sweeter white wine Keep the sauce thin, between an aus ju and a thin syrup The sauce comes out very strong, so use sparingly

I thought this was ok. The sauces was not anything I would want to make again. My husband, who likes just about everything involving fish wanted me to go rinse his food off.

This recipe was not good. The fish and asparagus cooked well, but the sauce was too tangy and did not go with the meal.
