Spring is in the air…at least in California! What that means for me is healthier options in eating so you will be finding more fish recipes, healthier choices in snacks and of course amazing side dishes (you all know I love my sides).
For this recipe, I used tilapia but really any white fish would work just fine. In shopping for the fish, look at the pieces, be picky…pick the pieces of fish that are more uniform in size, as it will allow the fish to cook evenly.
I wanted to add a little Mediterranean flare to my tilapia dish so I used capers (that are rinsed), tomatoes, basil and pitted kalamata olives. This combination of ingredients is very common for Mediterranean food, I also added fresh lemon juice. In less than 30 minutes I had the most amazing dish…and so will you!
Place the tomatoes, basil, kalamata olives, capers and oil in a 13×9 baking pan
meanwhile make your dressing
cook for about 15 minutes or until the tomatoes are slightly roasted
lower the oven to 375, move the roasted ingredients to the side and place you tilapia directly on the pan, put the roasted ingredients on top of the fish
pour the dressing on top of the fish
bake until fish is cooked through 10-12 minutes
sprinkle some fresh chopped basil on top and serve
I absolutely loved this recipe, it’s healthy with so much flavor! Here is the best part, while I am not a fan of eating leftover fish, this fish dish tasted amazing straight from the refrigerator, I didn’t even have to warm it up. This recipe can be doubled or tripled if you are having a large group for dinner and I can assure you they will all LOVE it!!!!
