Baked Tilapia

So I'm not very good with amounts, but I love tilapia baked like this:

Spray a caserole dish or cake pan with cooking spray, place the tilapia single layer in the dish. In a bowl, mix 14 0z can whole tomatoes, 1 can tomato paste, and about 1/2-1 cup red or white wine (depending on which you like and how thick or thin you'd like your sauce), 1 or 2 bell peppers cut into 1 inch chunks and 1 onion cut into 1 inch chunks. Add about 1 Tbsp sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add garlic powder or minced/chopped garlic if you wish. Pour the tomato mixture over tilapia and bake at 350 degrees until the veggies are tender. Tilapia is thin and doesn't take long to bake. I like to serve it on rice.

If you use frozen tilapia, your sauce will become thinner in the oven, so you may want to start with a slightly thicker sauce, i.e. less wine or more tomato paste.

I read the actual recipe one time and now I just kind of "play it by ear" when I make it, as I'm sure you can tell by my "exact" quantities listed. It's actually pretty hard to mess up, so don't worry about adding more or less of anything.



Fabulous - I'm going to make it this weekend
Sounds Yummy. I love tilapia!
I made this - and it was good, except I used "whiting" instead of tilapia and it was really fishy - but we all agreed that the sauce and veggies were super yummy and that it would probably taste really good with chicken, too.
