Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with half the olive oil. Rub the tilapia fillets in the oil to coat both sides. Season with the Creole seasoning, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and 1 teaspoon kosher salt; sprinkle with the cilantro. Drizzle the fillets with the lime juice and remaining olive oil; set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and Anaheim pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and begun to brown around the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes more. Pour in the wine and simmer 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour in the chicken stock and olives; season with cumin, cayenne pepper, oregano, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, red pepper flakes, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer about 20 minutes.
  4. Bake the tilapia in the preheated oven until the flesh turns white and is easily flaked with a fork, about 20 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the fish to serve.

Outstanding! I simplified the ingredients list by eliminating Anaheim chile peppers, cayenne pepper, oregano, red pepper flakes and Worcestershire sauce. Also eliminated salt and reduced oil to 2 tablespoons (just enough to cover the bottom of the baking dish and brush onto the fish). Substituted a can of diced tomatoes for the plum tomatoes. I didn't have Creole Seasoning, so I threw in a combination of Cajun and Chipotle spices, Ancho Chili Powder, and I brushed some Creole Mustard onto the fish. Served with a side of Tri-colored Couscous and asparagus.

I reduced the amount of oil used to lighten it up a bit and cut back on some of the salt as well - delicious and perfectly spicy - wonderful recips and sure to be a future favorite.

I loved this dish, as did hubby. I left out the red pepper and half the cayenne to cut down on the spice, and I left out the wine since I didn't have any and don't like it anyway. I used lemon instead of lime and dried cilantro rather than fresh because that's what I had. Definitely worthy of making again! I served it with "Spanish Rice Original" from this site, which was also a winner. Yum!
