I agree with some others - waaaaay too much onion in this thing, however, you don't have to eat all of it. Also, no way does this take 30 minutes to cook. Give yourself at least an hour. Otherwise, I really liked it. Very good and original combination of flavors and reheats nicely.
Vietnamese Tilapia with Turmeric and Dill
A killer savory marinade of shallots, fish sauce, toasted sesame oil, garlic, and turmeric permeates the fish and gives it a beautiful golden color. When you sear the fish in a hot-hot pan (go for stainless steel or cast iron here), it gets fantastically browned.
