No leftovers. The entire family enjoyed this. I didn’t have green olives so subbed capers, otherwise made as directed and served over rice. Delicious!
I had to make some modifications as I had a 28 ounce can of tomatoes and the picture looks more like diced tomatoes than crushed. I used a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes, probably 2 cups of mushrooms and then left the rest the same. The flavours (sorry from Canada) are great! Served with rice to complete the meal.
This dish is really flavorful and easy to make! I followed the recipe exactly and my husband raved over it. The prep is simple and the cooking is fast.
I served it along with grilled artichokes and a lemon aioli (also on this site). Try it tonight!
Loved it! Served it over cooked spinach and topped with grated Parmesan. Thank you!
Made it today per the recipe with the addition of 1 tablespoon capers and it was fabulous!!! All the flavors are complimentary and it’s so easy to make. This will become a go to recipe for me. Thanks Elise!!!
Made this last night (with a few tweaks) and it was fantastic! Added some capers and red peppers, and served over orzo with feta cheese and dollop of greek yogurt. thanks!
Making this tonight. My husband said it smells good and that’s just the sauce.
This is much like a recipe that I make regularly, but I use black sliced olives and I add a couple of big handfuls of fresh spinach (it cooks way down). I’ve also added garbanzo beans. I use whatever fish I have – my favorites are Cod or Mahi Mahi.
Made this using rockfish, as we were eating the hubby mentioned that the only thing that could make out better would be feta, voila!! It’s amazing! Been following you for years, first time commenting, love your page, thanks for all the inspiration!!
This was great. I changed it a little. I used flounder and tomato sauce. Very good recipe. Thank you. :-)
This is great! Tastes absolutely fantastic!
First to Elise–thank you for such a beautiful and inspiring site. I have been a reader since 2004 but have never ventured away from the computer to the kitchen. Now that I have my own place, I’m teaching myself to cook.
I made this dish last night. It was my first time cooking tilapia. I agree with previous posters that the fish definitely had a bit of a “funky” flavor. The sauce was really nice though, would definitely try it again using a different fish.
What a concidence – I saw this recipe today after trying something similar for dinner last night. One thing I did a little different was adding about a teaspoon of smoked Spanish paprika and juice from 1 lemon to the sauce. I didn’t add olives, either, although it sounds like a great addition.
I think the olives are what make the recipe!
OMG! This was so good. I shared it with my co-worker and we made it again the same night and her family loved it. We will make it again and again. My family enjoyed it so much they were upset I didn’t make enough to have leftovers. Now it’s one of my favorite meals. Thanks.
I read your blog almost every day, and I love it! I also plan to make several of your recipes – they all look so good! I made this one last night, and my family loved it! :)
Thank you for sharing your family recipes, and I hope that once my husband and I have a family of our own, we can share some of these with our family as well. :)
Nice recipe. Thanks for digging it out of the archives.
I made it for dinner this evening, as the local market had Tilapia on sale. Served it over whole-wheat couscous, with some roasted saffron-scented cauliflower.
Very delicious, everyone thought.
Yay! I’m always looking for a tasty alternative to breaded tilapia. And this is something that my very finicky husband should enjoy!
To the previous poster, someone suggested to soak tilapia in plain milk with a dash or two of tabasco to get any “funk” out.
Tilapia is a tasty fish but be aware that it is high in omega 6 fatty acids relative to omega 3. I mention this because my mother has rheumatoid arthritis and high amounts of omega 6 can promote inflammation. Most people probably won’t have a problem but others may.
This looks like a quite tasty recipe. I may try it with striped bass
I tried this dish with some capers and smoked Spanish paprika added, side of basmati rice – turned out really well and was so quick.
Lovely Recipe. We have Tilapia quite often, atleast 3 times a week.. sometimes just gril it, sometimes tandoor & sometimes curry. This is a real simple flavorful recipe, sure to give it a try!
