Mediterranean Tilapia

Mediterranean Tilapia


"We had some beautiful tilapia fillets, but no recipes! I had recently bought some amazing sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, and decided to invent a slightly Mediterranean fish dish for a quick weeknight dinner. My husband is a recipe purist, always follows them to the letter, but after this, he's learned to trust my inventions!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together the sun-dried tomatoes, olives and capers. Set aside.
  2. Place the tilapia fillets side by side in a baking dish. Drizzle with oil and lemon juice.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fish flakes with a fork. Check after 10 minutes, so as not to overcook, or the fish may be dry. When fish is done, top with the tomato mixture, and serve.

Not bad for a topping, the fish does need more seasoning beforehand. As for the reviewer that noticed the "fishy" flavor, that's got to be not so fresh fish, tilapia should never have any fishy...

I had bought Tilapia for the first time and tried this recipe. I changed a couple of things and it was delicious. I left out the capers as my husband will not eat them. Then about 2 minutes b...

Loving all of the recipe's ingredients, I made this with slight modifications. By poaching the tilapia in white wine/veggie stock/lemon juice with the chopped sundried tomatoes, olives, capers ...

This recipe has excellent flavor. FYI -I put the topping on the fish 2 minutes before I took it out of the oven so it would be warm. It was very good.

I followed a reviewer's suggestion to add feta and it was outstanding. I skipped the olives due to a family aversion to them, but the feta more than made up for it. I also added the mixture of t...

We really liked this recipe. I altered it by seasoning the fish with salt and pepper. I also sauteed the tomatoes, olives, and capers with fresh cut garlic. I served it with asparagus, sautee...

Very good recipe. I'm not real big on fish and am trying to change that. Tilapia is a tasty way to try new fish dishes. I used the sun-dried tomatoes and Kalamata olives. I added salt, peppe...

I made this last night and it was Awesome! Since I really don't like capers I took another reviews advise and added feta instead. I used half of a fresh lemon for the juice. Then I sliced it and...

Pretty good. Next time I'll bake the capers, tomatoes, and olives with the tilapia...or maybe pan fry them and then place them atop. I think it would be a lot better like that..probably make it ...
