    canarygirl's Note:

    This is very easy to make and is simply delicious. The wine is an optional ingredient, but I think it really gives the fish great flavor.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs tilapia fillets
    • 2 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 small onion, sliced julienne
    • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 1 sweet pepper, chopped (red or green, or a combination of both)
    • 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
    • salt and pepper
    • 1/2 cup Chardonnay wine (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (to garnish)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375º.
    2. 2
      Place fillets in a baking dish.
    3. 3
      Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Layer vegetables over fish, and add wine if using.
    5. 5
      Season veggies with salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      Cover baking dish tightly with foil.
    7. 7
      Bake 25-30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, and veggies are tender.
    8. 8
      Another way to do this is to pan fry the fish in a little olive oil, sautee the vegetables until tender and spoon the sauce over the fish.
    9. 9
      I just think that the oven is easier.
    10. 10
      Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

      Loved this recipe! I had some cod out for dinner, and wasn't sure what to do with it. Canarygirl suggested this one. Delicious! Made it just as the recipe says, and after cooking, I gave it a dose of squeezed lemon juice. We enjoyed the flavor of the wine very much. I will definitely keep this in my file to make again. Thanks cg!

      Really good recipe. This was my first attempt at cooking Tilapia and I will definately cook again. The only thing I will do different is not add quite as much Chardonnay. I love the flavor, but it was just did not cook out as much as I thought it should have.

      I made this on November 2nd, and I think that I totally messed it up! Since I was running low on time, I found that I had a can of chopped tomatoes with onion and garlic in the pantry, and used that to sub for the fresh tomatoes, garlic, and onion. I wish I hadn't! Plus, the Tilapia was a frozen package, so I don't think the quality was the best. Also, I didn't opt for the wine in it. However, this was a great recipe- easy and, I am sure, quite tasty. I can't wait to try this again. Thanks!
