This one-dish meal of Tilapia with Tomatoes and Olives is an easy weeknight meal. Keep the staple ingredients of garlic, thyme, tomatoes, and black olive on hand when you need a healthy meal in a hurry.

How to Make It

Step 1

Warm 1 Tbsp. oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, thyme and 1/2 tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in olives.

Step 2

Sprinkle tilapia with salt and place on top of tomato sauce. Cover and cook until fish is opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.

Easy and delicious. I think you could use any fish with this. I uses Mahi Mahi. Very good. Made no changes to the original recipe.

I'm not sure why I'm reviewing this recipe since I only loosely used it as a foundation. I knew I wanted to have fish (swai) and I wanted to use some yellow cherry tomatoes I had roasted and frozen last summer. AND I wanted it to be somewhat Mexican so I used oregano in place of thyme, green olives instead of black and sprinkled cilantro on top in lieu of parsley. I served this concoction over brown rice with sliced avocado alongside as a garnish. It was quite tasty and I'm making these notes so that I can remember what I did. I will eventually try the original recipe :)
