whole tilapia

so today at my local store i stumbled upon a great deal by total accident. someone had mislabeled a bag of whole flash frozen tilapia (4 whole fish) for 3.29 and they honored it! so i know how to make filets (kinda well) but im looking for a simple spicy recipe i can do in the oven. i love some of the Asian recipes but i dont have oyster sauce and they all seem to call for that. any good ideas? god i love a good deal!

  1. You might try combining soy sauce with Worcestershire sauce in your blender along with some finely chopped mushrooms sauteed in butter (I prefer Portabellas but you can use another if you prefer) and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust soy/Worcestershire to you liking but in the amount of ingredients the mushrooms should be the superior element in terms of mass/weight.
