Tilapia With Pimiento Sauce

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Greeny4444

I found this recipe on a cooking blog that I frequently read, and it's so good. This dish is so easy because everything is prepared in one skillet, on the stovetop. The fish comes out with tons of flavor, and all the flavors complement each other very well. Any mild, white fish can be subtituted for the tilapia, too. Sometimes, I drain the tomatoes and add 1/4 c. white wine to the sauce. My picture shows this with Kittencal's Low-Fat Oven-Baked Zucchini Sticks, and crusty bread might be good with this too.

DH loved this and gave it a big 5 stars, I really didn't love it and gave it a small 3 stars. :) He loved the flavor of the olives, which I didn't care for. I loved the healthiness of the recipe which he could care less about. Anyway we enjoyed this for our dinner tonight. I served it on top of some rice and called it good. My only change was to use button mushrooms. Made for Spring PAC 2010. Thanks for posting. :)
