I was looking for an alternative Friday Night Lenten Meal when I came up with this recipe. The recipe can be changed for whatever seasonings you are craving - even adding some canned tomatoes is good! My last batch, I added ghost pepper salt to the olive oil for a little kick!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 -3 garlic cloves
  • 14 small white onion, sliced & separated
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas
  • 1 tilapia fillet, cut in chunks (or Swai)
  • italian seasoning (I like Mural of Flavor)


  1. Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat.
  2. Toss in all other ingredients, allowing fish to cook through and chickpeas to slightly soften (5-10 min), stirring frequently.
  3. After ingredients are cooked, turn up heat to medium high and allow chick peas, onions and garlic to slightly toast and fish to crisp a little on the edges. Enjoy!
