This recipe from Elise’s Simply Recipes is quick and flavorful. Tilapia is cooked in a tomato, mushroom, and olive sauce, right on the stove. We served the fish with a side of orzo.
My, these green olive chunks are big…
The better for you to pick them out, my dear.
I’m not that picky, here, I’ll try one…
…and only one. I do like the flavor of the sauce though!
I like the speed of this dish. I’m all for getting food to my mouth sooner.
Tilapia with Pimiento Sauce
(via Simply Recipes)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
1 clove garlic, minced
1 14.5 oz diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
3/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 6-8 ounce tilapia fillets
In a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil, then cook the onions until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, cooking for an additional minute. Add the tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, oregano, salt, and pepper, and bring to a boil.
Add each tilapia fillet to the pan and cover with some sauce. Bring back to a boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.
Use a wide spatula to gently remove the fish from the pan, transfer to a serving plate, and top with the sauce.
