Why slave over a stir-fry when you can toss everything in the oven, no muss, no fuss" This oven-baked version is so ridiculously easy and delicious (you can even use frozen fish – no thawing!) that it’s going to be your new last-minute, go-to healthy dinner.
Let me start by saying that I’m fully aware that this isn’t really a stir-fry, but it does deliver all of the wonderful flavors you expect, and because it’s not actually being stirred and fried, I was able to use this delicious, delicate tilapia. Nom.

As soon as I ate it, I knew that I had to share it with you guys. Because I love you and I know that what you love are quick, easy and delicious meals, right" Right.
