mediterranean tilapia

This is one of my favorite fish dishes! Once again, it was a result of me trying to replicate a dish that I had at another restaurant but it morphed into my own little creation that I think is even better than the original! 


  • 4 or 5 4oz frozen tilapia (thawed)

  • 1 can of roasted tomatoes with garlic

  • 1 can of tomato sauce

  • 2 Tbls capers (more or less to taste)

  • 1/4 cup green olives, sliced

  • 6 marinated artichoke hearts, sliced

  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)

  • 2 Tbls olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp parsley

  • 1/2 tsp basil

  • 1/4 garlic salt

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 

  • dash of pepper


1. In a large pan, sauté' garlic, capers, green olives and artichoke hearts in olive oil for 3-5 minutes, until garlic is fragrant. 

2. Add tomato sauce, diced roasted tomatoes with garlic, and seasonings. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add tilapia to sauce mixture and cover with sauce. Cover and simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until tilapia is tender when pressed with a fork. Flip half way through. 

*Serve with white rice and sautéed spinach or vegetable of your choice. ENJOY!
