Star Fruit and fish?

I've also found a fish recipe using star fruit, but they don't tell you ow long to cook the fish.


So does anyone have any recipes for starfruit & fish?

I'm using talapia fish.

You could go very simple and just salt and pepper the fish, then lay thin slices of star fruit over and bake until the fish is done. Went you can stick a fork into the fish and it flakes apart then it is done.

Baked Fish Fillets With Star Fruit

2 tablespoons softened butter
2 fairly lean fish fillets, about 1/2 pound each, about 1/2 inch thick
salt and white pepper to taste
2 very small star fruit
lime juice to taste

Preheat oven to 450F. Select a baking dish to hold fillets in a single layer. Spread a little less than half the butter in the dish. Set fillets on butter. Add salt and pepper. Cut off star fruit tips. Slice fruit thin; arrange on fish. Dot with remaining butter. Taste star fruit; if rather sweet, sprinkle with a healthy dose of lime juice; if tart, a smaller amount. Bake for about 8 minutes, until fish just becomes opaque in the center. It will continue to bake in the dish, so do not overcook. Serve at once.

I've also decided to cook more with fruits and veggies, the more exotic they are the better. ( since I have to be on a diet I'm at least going to cook the way I want too but with out the salt.


And here's the link for the starfruit recipes

I'd say filet of tilapia or flounder would work nicely with this recipe. Either one of the fish doesn't have strong favor, so it will pull on the flavor you are trying to add, star fruit in this case. And 8 minutes might be just enough.

Just make sure the fish is cooked before taking out of oven.
