Balsamic Tilapia

This is a great way to make Tilapia with a twist. Easy, flavorful and good for you, it's different than the usual broiled, baked or fried Tilapia I usually have. Ingredients needed are minimal - I made it up with what I had on hand and it turned out beautifully. My husband loved it and he isn't much of a fish eater.

ingredients

directions

  • Add 1 tbs. olive oil to small saute pan.
  • Add onions and cook until tender.
  • Add tomatoes to onion and let cook until tomatoes begin to lose their shape.
  • Turn heat to medium/low and add 2 tbs. balsamic vinegar to onion and tomato mixture. Stir and let simmer while you prepare the fish.
  • Coat a large frying or saute pan with olive oil over medium heat.
  • Season fillets with salt and pepper then add to pan. The fish will cook very quickly. Try to flip only once. The fish is done when it begins to flake easily - in about 4-5 minutes total.
  • To serve, plate fish and spoon the tomato/onion mixture over the fish - about 1/4 cup per fillet. Serve immediately.

    I love balsamic vinegar, so I was excited to try this, especially since I'm always on the hunt for new ways to serve up fish (which I'm just not a big fan of!). I didn't have tomatoes or onions so I substituted pickled red peppers and shallots, and it cooked up nicely. The reduction came out beautifully! I plated the fish with some fresh greens and let the balsamic coat them too. It was quite fantastic and made for a quick meal too.
