Red Pepper and Tomato Tilapia

Red Pepper and Tomato Tilapia

When it is warm outside, I prefer to serve a light dinner. And this is a perfect for hot days like today. Plus you do not have to turn on your oven! You can use Tilapia or any white fish you prefer.  I like to serve the tilapia with some grilled or steamed vegies.

 The fish becomes so flaky and tender, you will have a hard time getting it out of the pan in one piece! The combination of tomatoes and red peppers add a bit sweetness to every bite.


1 tsp Olive Oil

1 large Onion

2 cloves Garlic

1 Red Pepper (diced)

4 C diced Tomatoes

1 tsp Oregano

1 tsp Basil

4 filets Tilapia (or any white fish)

Salt and Pepper


1.  Sauté onion, red pepper and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until soft. About 2-3 minutes.


2.  Add tomatoes, basil, and oregano. Sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add salt and pepper as desired


3.  Rinse Tilapia and lay it in the tomato and pepper mix. Put some of the mix over the fish. Cover and reduce to a medium/low heat, cooking until fish is flaky and opaque. Time will depend on the thickness of the filet. Tilapia should take about 8-10 minutes.



Tilapia is done! It is opaque and flaky to the fork. Now try to get it out of the pan with out it falling apart!
