      Have made this many times before, but just now getting around to reviewing it both here (to also add photo) and at Food Network. Very fresh tasting. Light. Served with a side of Jasmine rice and a salad. Had some cherry tomatoes I needed to use up so I cooked them down in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper to use instead of canned and 3 cloves of garlic instead of one, (our taste). Loved the addition of the fresh basil on top at the end as a finishing. Used Tilapia as it what was on sale this week. Will be definitely making it again!
