This recipe is fast, easy and very tasty. My whole family enjoyed it! I will be making this one again! This recipe would be great for any occasion. If you like a more spicier dish, I would add more hot sauce.

i give this 4 stars because i thought it was a good solid recipe my bf thought it was outstanding. have no idea where to buy a mixxed chopped tomato onion and bell pepper but had fresh ones on hand so just diced up about 1 cup total of veggies and followed directions. I couldnt figure out where the butter came from in the recipe directions so i just used butter instead of water mixxed with the hot sauce. Probably not the healthiest thing but it was good! BF said it could be less buttery so next time i may try it with the water or a mixture of butter and water. I also used cilantro instead of thyme because that is what i had on hand.

The Wifey loves making (and eating!) this dish. Here's another one from the Cooking Light 5 Ingredient 15 minute Recipes that I absolutely love. Both times I've made it I was without tilapia in the freezer so both times I substituted another white fish. I preferred the haddock to the barramundi, and I'm sure the tilapia is even better.

WOW. I am writing this before I finish eating so I don't forget anything. First of all, instead of buying a pre-diced tomato-onion-pepper mix, I got one of those "fresh hot salsa" packages that are found in the produce section (a very simple one that was basically just diced vegetable) and drained it before cooking. I also salted and peppered the fish before cooking. Never one to shy away from extra heat, we still made the hot sauce, butter, thyme mixture, but instead of water, I used a little dry vermouth I had in the cabinet. Served it over the Hoppin' John-style Rice and it was awesome!!! The only thing missing was a splash of lime, which I will serve with it next time. I will definitely make this again! Changes: fresh chopped hot salsa instead of pre-chopped tomato, onion, pepper mix Salt and Peppered the fish before cooking Dry Vermouth instead of water a splash of lime
