savory tomato-braised tilapia
Wow- this was great. It was savory and spicy- exactly what I look for in a favorite dish. A little too spicy for my kids but perfect for me and my husband.
savory tomato-braised tilapia (Taste of Home, Sep/Oct 2013)
4 tilapia loins
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small red onion, chopped
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained (I used mild)
3/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers, chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup tomato pasate
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
hot cooked pasta, optional
Sprinkle fillets with seasoned salt; drizzle with lemon juice. In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until tender. Add the next 6 ingredients; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes longer.
Place fillets over the tomato mixture; cook, covered 6-8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. If desired, serve with pasta.
